Duke Beats NC As the Most Popular College Basketball Team — Survey of the Day
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski won his Division 1 Men’s Basketball record 903rd game on Tuesday. According to a Harris Interactive poll, it seems like most people are sharing in the Blue Devils’ success as the highest percentage of Americans pull for this college team.
The survey asked 2,379 adults to name their favorite men’s college basketball team. It was Duke’s Tobacco Road rivals, the North Carolina Tar Heels, who got the second highest percentage of votes. Rounding out the top five were Ohio State, Kentucky and Syracuse.
It’s been a while since Duke or North Carolina haven’t topped the list. In fact, it was back in 1998 when Kentucky was the favorite.
