Asmussen's Top 50: No. 40 Duke
Bob Asmussen counts down his top 50 college football teams this upcoming season.
No. 40: Duke
Coach: David Cutcliffe
2013 record: 10-4
Projected 2014 record: 8-4
Circle the date: Sept. 27 at Miami
Why No. 40: What happened last year in Durham was a miracle. The basketball school found a way to win in football. Even Mike Krzyzewski was impressed. The trick is doing it a second time. The schedule should help. No Florida State is a good start. The Blue Devils should be undefeated going into the Miami game. Quarterback Anthony Boone returns for his senior season. He gets help from a talented group of running backs and three returning starters on the line. The defense must replace five starters and needs to again force a pack of turnovers to be effective. The margin for error in Durham is dental floss thin.
No. 41: Georgia Tech
