Just kind of put those game reps on film in practice so we’re ready to go Saturday.”

After playing three straight teams who were opening their season, Duke finally has an opponent who has game film available, after Virginia Tech beat NC State last week.

“The past few weeks, we haven’t really had much film on a lot of teams,” Carter said. “This week, now that we’ve seen them play,
