Duke Blue Devils

Last season Duke Blue Devils completed ACC Conference play with a 3-5 record while the finished overall with a 5-7 record. Former Clemson Tigers quarterback Chase Brice will take his spot for Duke this season along with eight starters that return. From the rushing end, Deon Jackson will return after his 641 rushing yards and six touchdowns last season. Nothing about the receiving end is known at the moment, but seven of their top nine tacklers from the defense will be back on the squad. Marquis Waters and Dylan Singleton will continue to play this year for the Blue Devils. Duke seems to have few changes on the team but nothing major to affect them.
