Want a Deal... Duke Blue Devils Football is Now on Groupon

By M. Shannon Smallwood

Has it really come to this in ACC Football action…

It seems the Duke Blue Devils are running a big special on tickets for its home game Saturday night against the Memphis Tigers.

Ticket specials are nothing new, but the strange thing here is you are not going to your local Piggly Wiggly or the Athletic Department Website to get the big deal.

You are going to…

Wait for it…


Yes, Groupon…

On the eve, eve of the biggest national exposure the ACC has had in years, the Blue Devils marketing department has to throw this one on the conference.


In all, it’s a great deal…

Four tickets and four commemorative cups for $60!

That’s definitely the deal-o-the-day if you live in the greater Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, area.

The sad thing is that only 9 have been sold.

The even sadder thing is that this Saturday is the huge celebration of 100 Years of Duke Football.

It’s time for ACC Football Nation to get behind and support the Blue Devils. Yes… even you North Carolina Tar Heel fans.

Duke is 3-1 going against a Memphis team that is 0-3. The Blue Devils just missed Woody’s High Five for this past week. We can’t let Head Coach David Cutcliffe down. He’s too good of a man and too good of a football coach to have to rely on the likes of Groupon to fill the seats.

So, accept this challenge Blue Devils and ACC Football Fans!

Time is of the essance…

You have only one day and 11 hours to save $100.

Cause everyone knows it’s gonna be tough to part with that extra Benjamin to watch Memphis and a special on 100 Years of Duke Football.
