Mark Dolejs-US PRESSWIRE
Impressive feats deserve recognition. With the Blue Devils becoming bowl eligible and leading the Coastal Division of the ACC the earned a spot on our ballot.
Don't look at who they've beaten, just enjoy the fact that Duke football is not terrible. One major team left off our ballot was the Georgia Bulldogs. They've beaten exactly ZERO teams with winning records this year and were destroyed by South Carolina. We are predicting them to be blown out by Florida this week and then the rest of the country will drop them down rightfully.
We've loaded the back of our ballot with non-AQ schools: Boise State, Toledo, Northern Illinois and Louisiana Tech. Notre Dame got a two spot bounce for beating BYU.
