Chris Davis has been around long enough to see Duke play in prominent locales such as Florida State and Alabama. Yet even the senior safety can't help but feel a little bit of special excitement about this week's trip.
After all, the destination is tradition-rich Notre Dame.
And thanks to the Fighting Irish's deal with NBC, Duke will get a rare chance to play on national television. Then comes the fact that Notre Dame (1-9) is struggling mightily under Charlie Weis this season, allowing the Blue Devils to treat a game that once seemed like a certain loss as a real chance to prove themselves.
