Serious Duquesne fans know that the Dukes won the 1937 Orange Bowl and the same Bowl when it was known as the Festival of Palms Bowl in 1934. Most probably don't know that the Dukes actually turned down a Cotton Bowl bid to their undefeated/untied squad to play Boston College on New Years Day, 1940. While Massey ranked Duquesne #1 in the Nation that year, the hold out for more money from the Cotton Bowl didn't go over well with the AP Poll voters who dropped the Dukes from #5 in the Nation to #8 in their Final AP Poll. School officials also turned down offers from the Sun Bowl in El Paso and something called the Olympic Bowl in Los Angeles.
