When No. 17 Duke visits No. 2 Syracuse on Saturday night, a new Carrier Dome attendance record likely will be set as the two winningest coaches in Division I history square off for only the third time in their Hall of Fame careers.

Duke's Mike Krzyzewski has 974 wins and Syracuse's Jim Boeheim boasts 940 victories.

The Blue Devils (17-4, 6-2 ACC) are fresh from an impressive 15-point win at No. 18 Pitt on Monday night and seem to be hitting their stride with a five-game winning streak.

Syracuse (20-0, 7-0) beat Wake Forest by 10 on the road Wednesday night, handing the Demon Deacons their first home loss of the season.

A year ago, Syracuse's final Big East home game against Georgetown drew a Carrier Dome record 35,012.
