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 Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Wallace Wade Stadium on Saturday, November 28 (a $40 value). Your seats will be in sections 1–10, so expect great views as the Devils duke it out with their equally demonic opponents.
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. Senior quarterback Thaddeus Lewis has been performing near flawlessly as of late, and Wake Forest's Riley Skinner was recently cleared to play after suffering a concussion earlier this month. Duke's offense has the edge, but Wake Forest's final two games are must-wins if they want a bowl game. It’s sure to be a hard-fought land vs. ground battle that will come down to inches and nano-inches.
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 (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 gold-painted faces of rivals, using your knowledge of the color wheel to wreak havoc on their careful plans.
As autumn fades, you won’t want to miss the upswinging Blue Devils as they definitively ruin Wake Forest's bowl game chances. 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.
