Duke: Worst Team In College Football According To Lawyer

Duke Blue DevilsDuke entered into a contract to play four football games against the University of  Louisville.  According to the complaint, Duke breached the contract.  Duke defended the lawsuit based on a provision of the contract that allowed Duke to avoid having to pay $150,000 penalty for each game not played, if Louisville could find an opponent of “similar statute” to Duke.
