The Football Game Film Collection includes films of Duke football games from the 1930s through the 1990s created by Duke Athletics for use by coaches.

The Football Game Films collection contains recordings of Duke football games created by Duke Athletics for the use of coaches and departmental staff. Recordings made before 1990 are largely on 16mm cellulose acetate film, black and white and with no audio; exceptions of color film or with included audio are noted in this guide where known. Recordings are grouped by individual game, titled by opponent, and include information on the game's outcome, score, and location, where known. Reference copies in other formats are included for a given game where they exist. Recordings made after 1989 are largely on video formats including VHS, BetaCam, and DVCam.

Also included are some compilations of games, highlights for certain players, and some recordings made from broadcast television.

Not every game played by Duke Football is included in this collection. Most games were recorded on several film reels, and some are missing. Many films have likely been edited. Additional information on location or game events may be included on the containers of individual recordings, or in the recordings themselves.
