DURHAM — Duke won the game. A&T won halftime.
Neither was close.
N.C. A&T played football at Duke for the first time Saturday night, a game a long time in the making. The Aggies are in their 95th season; Duke is in its 107th.
The FCS Aggies led 3-0 and 10-7 early, before FBS Duke wore them down and won 45-13.
In the middle of the game, A&T's Blue & Gold Marching Machine won over the Duke crowd during it's half of the halftime show. The band knew its audience. And its 6-minute "Rock Show" — which included Bon Jovi's "Living On A Prayer," Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Aerosmith's "Dream On" — drew a loud standing ovation.
