Blue Devils deliver an early Halloween surprise in Blacksburg. On Saturday October 26, 2013 the Duke Blue Devils travel to Balcksburg VA, for their biggest challenge this season. Taking on 14th ranked Virginia Tech to most analyst would be an long shot. For coach Cutcliff and his faithful troops, just another day at the office.
A shocking upset for many bi-standers in college football, but not such a surprise for followers of the steadily improving Duke football program. Duke now holding a 6-2 overall record, is topping their local rivals N.C. State and UNC.
Anthony Boone (Duke QB) had a total of 245 yards, 2 touch downs and 1 interception while David Watford (VA Tech QB) posted 263 yards, 1 touch down and 1 interception. Jamison Crowder continued his record season for Duke with 9 receptions for 113 yards and 1 TD.
Perfect timing for the victory going into their bye week. The team can reflect on the win and work to improve. Next up Duke will host cross town rival N.C. State who got badly beat by Florida State University by a 49-17 score. The game will be in Wallace-Wade Stadium in Durham on November 9, 2013.
