Good news for Duke’s hopes in the Quick Lane Bowl - Duke will likely have Ben Humphreys available.

The ace defender has been out with a knee injury since November 11th but has made dramatic progress in his recovery with coach David Cutcliffe saying “[w]e came back in Wednesday and it looked like magic. He moved around really well. I thought he was pretty good form.”

Also, walk-on grad student William Holmquist is expected to take over kicking duties now that Austin Parker is no longer part of the team.
