Duke’s primary receiver is junior T.J Rahming, in all likelihood, Lawrence Austin will draw the coverage against Rahming on Saturday. Rahming has been dangerous with 50 receptions for 619-yards and one touchdown.
Austin this season has been one of the Jackets best cornerbacks, if not the best. He currently sits third on the team in tackles with 41 while also collecting one interception and four pass deflections this season.
Austin will have to continue to play well in order to contain Rahming on Saturday. If he is able to shut down Rahming, the Jackets life on defense will become much easier as no other Duke receiver has really stood out this season.
If Austin can keep Rahming contained, it will allow the defensive line to have more time also to get to Jones and either force bad passes or come up with a few sacks.
