DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – When Duke takes on UNC, the sport, records, and venues don’t matter. It’s going to be heated no matter what. This weekend, the two schools meet on the gridiron playing for the Victory Bell.
It’s about more than that, though. The bell is just a symbol; a reminder of one school’s yearly dominance over the other. For Duke, this game is about pride and reclaiming some of the respect that was taken from them. The way last year’s game ended with the jump pass interception on the goal line has stuck in the Duke Blue Devils collective craw ever since the clock hit triple zeros at Kenan Stadium.
