While the 5-0 Dukes break for their open week, all four CAA games will help shape the conference's competitive title race.

Richmond will host Albany, Maine will be at Villanova, William Mary travels to Elon and Delaware will try to rebound from a loss to James Madison at first-place Stony Brook.

Key games in other conferences include:

Big Sky: Montana at Idaho State

Ivy: Yale at Dartmouth in a matchup of 3-0 teams

MEAC: North Carolina Central at Howard

Missouri Valley: Youngstown State at South Dakota in a Top 10 showdown and Western Illinois at Northern Iowa

Northeast: Wagner at Duquesne

Ohio Valley: Jacksonville State at upstart Austin Peay

Patriot: Lehigh at Colgate

Southern: Western Carolina at Wofford and Mercer at The Citadel

Southland: Sam Houston vs. Stephen F. Austin at NRG Stadium in Houston
