Blue Devil Briefs features a member of the Duke Football program talking for one minute or less about one specitic topic. 

DURHAM, N.C. – The sixth episode of Blue Devil Briefs features head coach David Cutcliffe talking about the NCAA's new redshirt rule that started with the 2018 season. 

Under the new regulations, student-athletes can participate in up to four games without burning their redshirt for the season. The rule will preserve a year of eligibility while still allowing some playing time for an athlete who hasn't yet used his redshirt season.

The goal of the new rule was to allow coaches additional flexibility and give younger players an opportunity to participate in limited competition.

Blue Devil football tickets are available online at www.GoDuke.com/FootballTix or by calling the Duke Athletic Ticket Office at 919-681-2583.
