DURHAM, N.C. - Duke Athletics stands in 21st place in the final fall Learfield Sports Directors' Cup Standings, released by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics today.

Overall, Duke has 214 points and ranks eighth among private institutions behind Stanford (1st), Notre Dame (4th), BYU (13th), Georgetown (14th), Syracuse (15th), Princeton (17th) and Tulsa (18th). Five current Atlantic Coast Conference schools are ranked among the top 21 – Florida State (3rd), North Carolina (5th), Virginia (19th), Maryland (20th) and Duke (21st). The Blue Devils ended up with a 16th-place finish in 2011-12.

Duke added 25 points from its previous point total based on its football appearance in the Belk Bowl vs. Cincinnati.  

The Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today. Points are awarded based on each institution's national finish in up to 20 sports -- 10 women’s and 10 men’s.
