Duke redshirt sophomore PK/P Austin Parker has been dismissed from the program.

According to the press release, Parker was dismissed due to a "violation of university academic policy." The redshirt sophomore served as both the starting punter and place-kicker for the team this season. He connected on 17-of-21 boots while averaging a smidge over 42 yards per punt. The Blue Devils will likely now have to turn to William Holmquist (kicker) and Parker Boehme (punter) for their Quick Loans Bowl date with Northern Illinois on Dec. 26.

ESPN's Chris Low told Tennessee he is not interested in their head coaching vacancy.

Cutcliffe was approached by Volunteer officials but told them no thank you. Apparently the Duke coach was Tennessee's immediate target after backing out of an agreement with Greg Schiano. Cutcliffe is on his 10th year coaching Duke.

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 25-of-43 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 31-23 win over Wake Forest.

In a fun -- if occasionally wobbly -- performance, Jones hit on two of his three touchdown passes in the second half and also added a second-half rushing touchdown to help Duke (6-6) achieve bowl eligibility. Both the 346 passing yards and the three touchdown tosses represented season bests for the 6-foot-5, 215-pounder redshirt sophomore.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline declares that Duke redshirt sophomore LB Joe Giles-Harris "has quietly been one of the most productive linebackers on the college field this season."

The analyst has long been a fan of Giles-Harris', stating over the summer that the linebacker could be a Day 2 pick "if he continues to improve." Mission accomplished on the improvement front. Giles-Harris has 110 tackles, 14 TFL, six quarterback hurries and five pass breakups in eleven games this year. Pauline sees an "explosive run and chase linebacker who shows outstanding pursuit speed and the ability to cover tight ends or running backs down the field." Pauline currently projects Giles-Harris as a Day 2 pick and three-down NFL linebacker with a "nice degree of scheme versatility."

Duke redshirt freshman RB Brittain Brown carried the ball 14 times for 116 yards and a touchdown in a 43-20 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Brown (6'1/200) also added three catches for 31 yards. It's the first time that the freshman tailback has gone over 100 yards since the season opener against North Carolina Central. It's also the first time that he's had double-digit carries since October 7 against Virginia. Brown will hope to make it back-to-back strong games next week when Duke finishes their season and qualify for a bowl with a win against Wake Forest.

Duke sophomore RB Shaun Wilson rushed for 73 yards on 11 carries, caught three balls for 36 yards and two touchdowns and threw for a four-yard touchdown in Saturday's 43-20 win over Georgia Tech.

Wilson was everywhere today. We want to talk about the passing touchdown, because it was a slick bit of play-calling by offensive coordinator Zac Roper. On Georgia Tech's 4-yard line, QB Daniel Jones handed the ball to Wilson, who took a few steps towards the line of scrimmage before floating a jump pass to a wide-open TE Daniel Helm. That gave Duke a 36-20 lead early in the fourth quarter and essentially put the game out of hand. Duke closes out the regular season at Wake Forest next week.
Nov 18 - 7:29 PM

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones went 18-for-26 for 177 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 43-20 win over Georgia Tech.

Jones was also killer when he got out of the pocket, rushing for 91 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown scamper. We've been underwhelmed with him so far this season, but showings like this display Jones' (6'5/215) tools. He's big and athletic, but his game inside the pocket needs work. The 5-6 Blue Devils must upset Wake Forest next week on the road to go bowling.
Nov 18 - 7:21 PM

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 19-of-29 passes for 164 yards and an interception while rushing for 22 yards and a score in Saturday's 21-16 loss to Army.

We came into the campaign with higher hopes for both Jones and his Duke team, but both have underwhelmed in 2017. Jones owns a poor 8/8 TD/INT ratio and is averaging well less than 6.0 YPA. With the lack of explosion, you'd think his completion percentage would have spiked. Not so. After completing 62.8-percent of his passes last year, he's a shade under 54.0-percent this year.
Nov 11 - 3:41 PM

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 10-of-24 passes for 82 yards and an interception while rushing for 65 yards in Saturday's 24-3 loss to Virginia Tech.

While Jones did manage to do a decent job as a runner, this was a punch-less, embarrassing performance by the Blue Devils on the whole. They finished with just 183 yards of total offense as a team. With the loss, Duke has now dropped five consecutive games. They'll be off on a much-needed bye next weekend.
Oct 28 - 11:06 PM

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 15-of-33 passes for 272 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 24-17 loss to Pitt.

Jones connected on a pair of third-quarter touchdown passes, but those represented essentially the whole of Duke's scoring output on the afternoon. The redshirt sophomore owns just an 8/6 TD/INT ratio in eight games this season.
Oct 21 - 5:10 PM

Duke junior WR T.J. Rahming caught eight passes for 142 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 24-17 loss to Pitt.

Rahming hauled in a 39-yard touchdown pass from Daniel Jones with just under 30 seconds remaining in the third quarter. He's now posted back-to-back 100-yard receiving efforts after failing to hit that mark since the second week of the season. On the whole, the junior is working to a 44-567-1 receiving line.
Oct 21 - 5:04 PM

NFL.com draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes that Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones is an "under-the-radar" prospect for the 2018 draft.

Jones (6'5/215) hasn't put up elite passing numbers for the Blue Devils this year, but it's not all about stats, as Jeremiah notes. "He throws a nice, catchable ball and he also displays some toughness in the pocket," Jeremiah said. When you add that with his size, it makes Jones at the very least an intriguing prospect at the most premium of positions.

Duke junior RB T.J. Rahming caught eight passes for 111 yards in the school's 17-10 loss to FSU on Saturday.

This included a 57-yard catch on a fully extended grab, an outstanding play by Rahming. This is the second time Rahming has gone over 100 yards receiving this season, the first since Northwestern in game No. 2.
Oct 14 - 3:10 PM

Duke released a clean injury report in advance of Saturday's game against Virginia.

No news is good news for the Blue Devils, particularly at this juncture of the season, when injuries have usually started to pile up to varying degrees. This weekend's contest is an intriguing under-the-radar game, as Duke currently sits at 4-1 and Virginia at 3-1.
Oct 5 - 5:32 PM

Duke junior WR T.J. Rahming caught just two passes for 27 yards in a 31-6 drubbing to Miami on Friday.

Rahming came into the game with 24 catches on the year, but the top Blue Devils wideout got nothing going against a legit Miami Hurricanes' defense that caused QB Daniel Jones to be inaccurate with the football -- when he wasn't being sacked, anyway. Duke and Rahming should get back to rolling offensively next week when they travel to Virginia.
