It’s an off year for Duke. They’ve got a bunch of young, unexperienced players. What does that mean? It means a 3-2 conference record. Unfortunately, they’re 16-3 overall and rated ahead of Clemson in just about every (if not all) published ranking system in what is a historically successful season for the Tigers. That really underscores the gulf between the two programs over the years.
Duke is favored by 8 tonight at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Tonight’s game will be as meaningful as it is tough. The ACC has 3 one-loss teams, and tonight’s loser sinks into three-loss conference mediocrity. The winner stays on the scent trail left by the league leaders.
You can watch on ESPN at 7. How the hell am I supposed to get any work done today when I have to worry about this damn game?
