Durham, NC - This Saturday's #DukeTweetUp event will feature former Blue Devil All-American basketball star Nolan Smith and will benefit the Sydney & Nolan Smith Foundation. #DukeTweetUp attendees are encouraged to be there from the start of the event, which will begin with the football team's Blue Devil Walk.

When: Saturday, October 22nd, 10 a.m. - Duke Football vs. Wake Forest

#DukeTweetUp Includes:

*Pre-Game BBQ in Blue Devils Alley (Krzyzewskiville) catered by Durham’s-own Hog Heaven. Fans will have their own tent to enjoy the event in, along with seating and a big-screen TV that will show the 2010 men's basketball national championship game. Games, music, inflatables and the live Duke Football pre-game show will also be just steps away.

*Opportunity to take an individual pregame photo with Nolan and the 2010 national championship trophy. A professional photographer will take the photos and they will be available on GoDuke for you to download after the game.
