Want to know the best kept secret around our apartments in Durham? The rise of Duke football. That’s right: Duke football.
They’re not just the warm-up for basketball season anymore. Duke Football has already achieved eligibility for a bowl game with a record of 6-2 and stunning wins over Wake Forest, the University of Virginia, and intrastate arch-rival, the University of North Carolina Tarheels.
Both the Virginia and North Carolina wins came within the confines of Wallace Wade Stadium and the home venue was the loudest it has been since 1994, a magical year for Duke football fans.
A couple of great games remain on the schedule in Durham, including a November 3 battle with ranked Clemson and the regular season closer November 24 against the Miami Hurricanes.
With the great start and bowl eligibility for the first time in nearly two decades, tickets have started to sell quickly. Take the opportunity to catch the excitement of Duke football this season as they compete for the ACC crown.
They will certainly be in a bowl game to be determined at the end of the season, so see them capture further glory in Durham. Fight! Blue Devils, Fight!
