We realized while watching the Duke-NCCU game that Daniel Jones played very well, but we didn’t realize just how well: yes it’s NCCU, but nonetheless, Jones, playing in his first college game, racked up Duke’s fifth highest ever efficiency rating (216.51) and set a freshman record.

Not bad.

And, says David Cutcliffe, he is clearly Duke’s best quarterback at the moment.
