The Duke Blue Devils are the 63rd DI program and fourth from the ACC to release their 2022 men’s lacrosse schedule. The Blue Devils are coming off a 2021 campaign in which they went 14-3 (4-2) and fell to Maryland in the NCAA Semifinals.
Blue Devils’ 2022 Schedule:
Delaware, Manhattan, Penn, Vermont
Air Force, Mercer
3/5 vs Denver: For the fourth season in a row, the Blue Devils will meet the Denver Pioneers in an early-season contest. Duke beat Denver 12-10 last season and currently holds a 4-0 series lead over the Pioneers all-time.
3/12 @ Loyola: The Blue Devils will travel to face the Loyola Greyhounds in an NCAA Quarterfinals rematch from a year ago. Duke defeated Loyola on a Joe Robertson overtime, 10-9, off a game-winner last season to advance to Championship Weekend. Both teams are potential Championship Weekend contenders once again in 2022.
4/2 @ North Carolina: One of the two ACC opponents that the Blue Devils will play twice this season is arch-rival North Carolina. The first Tobacco Road Rivalry meeting will come at the beginning of April. Last season, the season series was split between these two as the Blue Devils won the first meeting in overtime and the Tar Heels won the second time around.
