There's nothing that Duke Blue Devils fans hate more than when Duke loses to the UNC Tar Heels. Fortunately for those fans, the Blue Devils will have some significant advantages over the Tar Heels this season and should have a great chance at victory.
There might not be a better rivalry in sports than UNC/Duke. You just get the sense that every one of their games means a little more, not just to the players, but to the fans as well.
The Blue Devils may have flamed out in last year's NCAA Tournament, but Duke fans can always hold on to the Austin Rivers-led comeback against the Tar Heels. That game alone could have been enough to brand the season a success.
Picking up a win against UNC matters more than one against any other team, and Duke is going to want every possible advantage over the Tar Heels. This year, it looks like they'll have more than a few of them.
Here's what Duke has over UNC heading into the 2012-13 season.
