Get two times the ACC for half the bling with today’s Groupon, which gets you a $20 ticket to see the Duke Blue Devils take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Wallace Wade Stadium on Saturday, November 14 ($40 value). Your seats will be in sections one through 10, so expect great views as the Devils’ trident forcefully removes the Jackets’ stinger.
Coming off a few disappointing seasons, the Blue Devils are back on the winning track, thanks in no small part to the Iron Dukes’ relentless gopher-removal campaign. With above-average records both overall and intra-conference, the team is poised to sideline the nationally ranked Yellow Jackets. There is no doubt this is one of the team’s toughest matchups of the season. It pits senior quarterback Thaddeus Lewis against Tech’s Josh Nesbitt. Best friends in real life and members of a capella group The Kick-Offs, the two are formidable rivals. Lewis has been performing near flawlessly as of late, and Nesbitt—who plays less of a role in the team’s run-focused offense—is a consistent quarterback who understands his role perfectly. It’s sure to be a hard-fought, land-vs.-ground battle that will come down to inches and yards.
No collegiate football game is complete without a lengthy pre-game tailgating session, preferably featuring giant, cylindrical orange coolers full of fruitily alcoholic "your guess is as good as mine" juice. Grab some brews and slow-cooked meats in the parking lot before this conference showdown commences. Proudly display your team loyalties by slathering on some Duke Blue face paint prior to arrival (note: take care not to accidentally attend the Braveheart fan convention in the adjacent lot). If you’re feeling extra prideful, bring some green paint to discreetly add to the yellow-painted faces of rivals, using your knowledge of the color wheel to wreak havoc on their careful plans.
As autumn fades and bowl season approaches, you won’t want to miss the upswinging Blue Devils derail Georgia Tech’s nearly spotless season. Be one of the thousands of exuberant fans storming the post-victory field with bliss-filled bellies and eyes focused on their number one target—the goalpost.
A real college football game can be a great family event, but try not to get too frustrated if you’re forced to bring your football-illiterate nephew—he means well, and he’s just excited about spending time with you. Here’s a list of questions he might ask so you can get all the eye-rolling out of the way ahead of time and concentrate on the male bonding.
- How many touchdowns are in a field goal? I need to know for my report.
- If the goal is to acquire distance, wouldn’t a grooved or finned ovoid projectile facilitate a more pronounced trajectory?
- How much mana do you have to tap to summon a quarterback?
- I have to go to the bathroom. Can you pause it?
- Is it cheating to use The Force?
