Duke will be using an 8-bit scoreboard for its throwback game

Friday September 19th, 2014

The team will continue the theme with some great-looking helmets with "Duke" written in blue script.

The team will want to be careful not to take the throwback concept too far though, as it's still enjoying last year's first 10-win season in the program's 93-year history.
