We’ve got a must-see ACC showdown on tap tonight, as the Duke Blue Devils will travel to Charlottesville to take on the Virginia Cavaliers. This will be the first and only scheduled meeting between two teams that are sure to be popular picks to go deep into March Madness brackets.

Tonight’s game will have an interesting clash of styles, as Virginia is the best team in the country at playing defense, and Duke boasts a high-octane offense. Virginia only gives up 55.1 points per game (1st in NCAA), while Duke scores 81.9 points per game (22nd in NCAA).

The #14 ranked Cavaliers (18-6, 8-4 ACC) will look to bounce back from a disappointing road loss to in-state rival Virginia Tech. This past Sunday, the Hokies edged out an 80-78 victory over Virginia in a double-overtime thriller. While Virginia is coming off a loss, the #12 ranked Blue Devils (20-5, 8-4 ACC) are red hot. They’ve won their last five games, including victories at #20 Notre Dame and at home over #8 UNC.

Now that you know a little bit about the matchup, let’s break down all of the ways you can watch the game.
