Duke and Northwestern start a busy day of college football on Saturday.

The Blue Devils and Wildcats kick off at noon on ESPNU from Ryan Field in Evanston, Illinois.

Duke’s gameday protocol is to have the team meal three hours and 30 minutes prior to kickoff. Since the game is being played in the central time zone, that will be 7:30 a.m. local time.

The Blue Devils’ daily practice sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. so players can attend afternoon classes.

So the early start in Chicago fits Duke just fine.

“I’m going to let them sleep in a little bit,” Cutcliffe joked.

Both teams are 1-0. Northwestern opened its season with a 31-27 win at Purdue on Aug. 30. The next night, Duke beat Army, 34-14, at Wallace Wade Stadium.
