Duke Braces for Another Bout with an Option Offense


DURHAM — On paper, Duke defensive end Kenny Anunike explains, the Navy triple option offense he’ll face Saturday is easy to break down.

“It’s not very complicated; it’s really just assignment football and everyone just knowing who they have,” Anunike said. “If you have pitch, take pitch. If you have the quarterback, take the quarterback. If you have alley, take the alley.”

But on the field, Anunike continues, it’s not as simple.

“Where they get you is one guy being out of place,” he said. “It’s a numbers game, and that’s how they run that offense. That’s what they’re looking for because they want to catch you off guard. That’s when they score a lot of points and get big yards.”

Duke hosts Navy (3-1) at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Wallace Wade Stadium and will have its hands full with a scheme Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo has called, “A great equalizer.”
