The Duke Blue Devils were riding an 8 game winning streak before the ACC Championship, and sit at 10-3 under first year head coach, David Cutcliffe.
Texas A&M started the season with national title implications, and scored 42 points on then #1 Alabama looking like they could still win the conference. Then along came LSU, Georgia, and Auburn and now the Aggies are 8-4 lead by Heisman Winner Johnny Manziel.
The Aggies are 13 point favorites over the Blue Devils. However with the recent success of Duke against the downfall of A&M, this could be a very good matchup that could very well come down to the 4th quarter.
Duke has perfected the two quarterback system this season, with Anthony Boone as the starter, and Brandon Connette coming in as well. The two QB's are responsible for 40 TD's this season, and as this would generally be a problem for some teams, Duke thrives off of it.
Texas A&M has the best quarterback in the nation in Johnny Manziel. The Sophomore who took the nation by storm his first year has put up even better numbers this year, and should put up a lot of points in the last college football game in 2013.
Despite the Aggies success scoring points, they have failed to stop a lot of teams defensively. They are 89th in the country in points against, which is the main reason why they went 4-4 in conference play.
Dukes two quarterback system against the struggling Aggies defense is just the beginnig of marquee match-ups in this bowl game.
