Games to Circle

2/5 @ Duke: Denver travels to Durham to take on a stacked Duke Blue Devils squad in what has become one of the better early season meetings in recent years. Last season in Denver, Duke bested the Pioneers 15-13.

2/5 @ North Carolina: In the second of the road trip to the Tar Heel State, the Denver Pioneers will take on the North Carolina Tar Heels. Last season, Denver put together a fourth quarter comeback after being down 13-5 entering the final quarter, but ultimately fell 15-13.

3/13 & 4/17 vs/@ Georgetown: The Pioneers and the Hoyas have put together one of the best series in recent history over the past few seasons. During the past two full seasons (2018,2019), Denver won the regular season meeting and Georgetown won the Big East title game matchup. These two could very well see each other there again this season.
