Duke vs. Wake Forest, October 1932

Defeating the Demon Deacons in the 1930s

This past Saturday, Duke’s football team defeated Wake Forest, 34-27 (Go, Duke!).

In honor of this victory, the Duke University Archives thought it would be fun to share some historical photos we recently received from the Sports Information Office.  These action shots are from football games in 1931 and 1932 show Duke playing (and defeating: 28-0 in 1931 and 9-0 in 1932) Wake Forest.
