Durham, NC -  

Following its first win of the season against Boston College over the weekend, the Duke football team is making it easy for faculty and staff to pack the stands at Wallace Wade Stadium for Saturday's game against Tulane University.

Employees pay $15 per ticket - 40 percent off the regular cost of a ticket - to cheer on the Blue Devils. The seats are reserved in sections nine and 10, which is between the north end zone and the 25-yard line. To get the discount, faculty and staff must order tickets by Thursday by calling the Athletics' ticket office at (919) 668-9235. Kick-off is 3:30 p.m.

"Coming off the huge win at Boston College, we'd love to pack the stands for Homecoming," said Mike Forman, director of marketing and promotions for Duke Athletics. "Our employees played a key role in creating a great atmosphere against Richmond and we need their support for the remainder of the year as well."

Duke is coming off Saturday's close win against Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Mass. The Blue Devils overcame an early 10-point deficit and capitalized on second half kicking woes from Boston College to claim a 20-19 win. Duke is 1-2 overall, 1-0 in the ACC.
