North Carolina-Duke may be the best rivalry game in college sports, so it makes sense that many celebrities come out of the woodwork to see the matchup live.

But there appears to be a pretty reasonable explanation for Bo’s Duke fanhood — his son is a Duke fan, and was sitting next to him in a Blue Devils jersey. So no need to start the “Bo Pelini to coach Duke football” rumors.
