ACC Weekly Feature - Duke - Let's Go Duke

School: Duke University


Town: Durham, NC - Part of Tobacco Road

Head Coach: David Cutcliffe

Football Stadium: Wallace Wade Stadium (Wallace Wade Stadium is the only stadium outside of Pasadena to host the Rose Bowl.  This was right after Pearl Harbor had been attacked and they were scared for the safety of the spectators)


 Mascot: Blue Devil

Traditions: I haven't found any traditions that are football related.  Most of Duke's traditions, are centered around basketball.  (Camping out, bonfires...)

Where to Watch the Game if You Don't Have a Ticket: Satisfactions, Devines, Tobacco Road, Charlie's.  But you won't ever have trouble finding a ticket to a Duke football game.  But for basketball...  you'll have to campout... for a week at a time

Where to Party After A Win: Downtown Durham (Tobacco District), Charlie's, Main at Brightleaf Square, Ninth Street
