DURHAM -- A record-breaking crowd greeted the Duke Football team on Saturday at the program's annual Meet the Blue Devils Day in Pascal Field House. More than 3,000 fans spent almost two hours getting autographs, taking pictures with Coach David Cutcliffe and the Duke players, and partaking in a number of kid-friendly activities.
Young fans were able to try on the team's new uniforms, including the jerseys and helmets, for additional photo opportunities, while the team's cheerleaders and the Duke mascot were also on hand for the festivities.
Those in attendance received a free copy of the official 2014 team poster after getting an exclusive opportunity to see its unveiling. Fans who weren't able to attend the event can visit the Duke Ticket Office during normal business hours and pick up a free copy of the poster.
Duke opens the 2014 season on Aug. 30 against Elon at Wallace Wade Stadium. The Blue Devils are coming off of a record-setting 10-win season that included the ACC Coastal Division title and appearances in the Dr Pepper ACC Championship Game and the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
