SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Duke-Syracuse is a sellout again in the Carrier Dome.

The No. 4 Blue Devils, easily the Orange’s biggest rival in the Atlantic Coast Conference, visit Syracuse on Saturday night and for the second straight time the teams will play in front of 35,446 fans.

It will be the second Carrier Dome meeting between Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and Orange coach Jim Boeheim. They’re the two winningest coaches in Division I history, with 1,004 and 964 victories, respectively.

The crowd will match the on-campus, single-game attendance record set when the two teams played in the Carrier Dome a year ago. Syracuse won 91-89 in overtime, then lost the rematch 66-60 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Last season, Syracuse led the NCAA in home attendance with an average of 26,253.
