Duke football used to have trouble advertising outside of Durham County. Clearly that’s changed.

John Seelke saw an ad for Duke football in...Silver Springs, Maryland.

It was on a video ad board and featured Daniel Jones holding a ball out and staring at the viewer.

At first glance it doesn’t make much sense but Duke does have a lot of graduates in the DC area. Given Duke’s improvement, it does make sense to cast a wider net.
