While any team will say that they never underestimate their opponent, it's clear that the Blue Devils weren't prepared for this kind of offensive firepower from the Trojans. USC moved the ball incredibly well and Duke was lucky to emerge with a victory after digging themselves a late second-half hole. Nevertheless, after losing a tight battle to Hartford on the road early in the season and eking out a win against Western Kentucky, the Blue Devils have to be pleased with the way they fought back away from home.

LIVE BLOG: Duke vs. Wake Forest
