Tyler Van Dyke does not want Miami to underestimate Duke ahead of Saturday’s game.

Van Dyke has been impressed with what he has seen from Duke this season. He discussed Miami’s expectations of this Duke team.

“This is a very good team,” Van Dyke said. “We have to take them seriously.”

Duke enters this game with a 4-3 record. The Blue Devils have made strides to improve in head coach Mike Elko’s 1st season. Elko was hired in December 2021 and the program immediately responded to a leadership change.

In Week 7, Duke played a competitive game against North Carolina. The Tar Heels escaped with a 38-35 win over the Blue Devils in Durham.

Van Dyke recognized that Duke is a different program.

“It’s not the same old Duke,” Van Dyke added. “They’re a very good team.”

Miami is currently on a 2-game winning streak over Duke. Miami leads the all-time series vs. Duke with a 15-4 record.

In Week 8, Miami will host Duke on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET.
