Duke and Northwestern have formed a bit of a rivalry over the past six seasons — with Duke’s general ups and downs not really reflected in their consistent bludgeoning of Northwestern. So with their ranking now at 21st, one good trophy for Duke this season would be a fifth consecutive series win under second-year coach Mike Elko. Northwestern, which is dealing with a coaching change and, well, a dreary 12-game losing streak that recently ended, is aiming to build on last week’s authoritative victory over UTEP.
The big match-up is on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. If you get satellite TV through DirecTV or Dish Network, you can simply tune into the game via ACC Network. If not you’ll need a live TV streaming service with the ACC network, and for that we recommend FuboTV.
If you haven’t availed yourself of a FuboTV free trial, you’ll want to do that. Otherwise the cost of a live TV streaming service is steep, and the “Pro” tier at FuboTV will set you back $69.99 per month, with a possible surcharge for local sports on top of that. It does, fortunately, get you access to hundreds of TV channels, so if you’re planning on signing up just to watch this game, make sure you dig into what’s on offer — you’ll already be paying for a month of service, after all, and you’ll want it to be worth your while.
