One of the many remarkable things about the program that David Cutcliffe has built at Duke is that Duke has thrived on the road.

This is no accident.

Like special teams, it’s been a particular emphasis for Cutcliffe and his players buy in. Check out DeVon Edwards: “Honestly, I think we just play hard everywhere we go.
