#2 UVA gets ready for #4 Duke, College GameDay on Saturday

radioSecond-ranked UVA is 19-0, and the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville will be a madhouse on Saturday when #4 Duke comes to town.

Augusta Free Press editor Chris Graham joins host Jim Bresnahan on WREL-1450AM in Lexington, Va., to preview the game and the big day on Grounds, which will feature the first-ever appearance of ESPN College GameDay in Charlottesville.

Chris also reviews the ongoing ACC basketball season to date. Is Duke the second-best team in the nation’s toughest conference, or will the Duke-Notre Dame game on Wednesday give the eighth-ranked Irish a chance to show themselves as a possible #1 NCAA seed?

A quick look at the Super Bowl wraps us up.
