Duke is 21st in the nation in rushing at 261/game. GT is 14 in the nation at 292/game. Duke is 29 in the nation in Total Offense, #17 in scoring offense, and #7 in scoring defense.
GT fans need to quit looking down at Duke. They are a good team that can beat us straight up if we keep playing inconsistently. The last couple of games against them has come down to the 4th quarter. Cutcliffe is starting to round the corner with that program. It will be a good game. I'm glad we have them at home this year.
If you're that "impressed" with Duke's stats, let me help put them into perspective:
From USA Today:
"It wasn't the most impressive run through nonconference play — Kansas, Troy, Tulane and Elon — but Duke will head into Atlantic Coast Conference play unblemished. The Blue Devils' 4-0 start is the program's first since 1994."
Duke beat Troy 34-17 (at Troy), which just got smoked by UGA (66-0 at home), and they beat Tulane 47-13 (at home) which really wasn't much better than what we did to them away (at the opening of their brand-new stadium) if you think about it (38-21).
