Efficiency leads Duke to a 34-14 win over Army in the opener

With the College Football season finally upon us, the excitement was in the air on a hot and muggy Friday night in Durham, NC. The Duke Blue Devils hosted the Army West Point Black Knights on Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium.

But after a dismal seven for 35 field goal performance by South Carolina at Bon Secours Wellness Center, there was no panic in the Gamecocks locker room at intermission.

The patience and trust resulted in a near-perfect finish where South Carolina scored 65 second-half points on 71-percent shooting, and stormed back to upset the Blue Devils 88-81 before a partisan garnet and black clad crowd of 14,216 Sunday night.

“We came in the locker room at the half a little shocked, but …
