Tune into Duke. Really.
By Heather Dinich
If you're not watching the Duke-Stanford game (ESPNU), you might want to rethink it.
Stanford leads 10-7 after an impressive 77-yard interception return for a touchdown.
Andrew Luck has been a little bit -- gasp -- inaccurate. Duke has played a more than respectable game. Some of you might remember Virginia Tech's performance in the Orange Bowl?
Yeah, well, Duke is looking better right now. In fact, the Blue Devils would be leading had it not been for two missed field goals by Will Snyderwine. Coach David Cutcliffe has taken some gambles with his calls, but most have paid off.
The fact that Duke is even in this game late in the first half will probably surprise some of you. Especially after last week's loss to Richmond.
But this isn't Richmond. It's the No. 6 team in the country. Even if this is a fleeting moment, it's one worth watching.
