Blue Devils beat Wolfpack 38-20 for 7th win
DUKE 38, NC STATE 20

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- DeVon Edwards scored three touchdowns, two
on interception returns in a span of 16 seconds to help Duke
beat North Carolina State 38-20 on Saturday, securing the Blue
Devils' first winning season in nearly two decades.

Edwards also had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown late
in the third quarter for the Blue Devils (7-2, 3-2 Atlantic
Coast Conference), who went from trailing in a close game to
winning in a romp with a stunning flurry of late-game
touchdowns.

Brandon Connette put Duke up for good with a 5-yard keeper with
3:31 left for a 24-20 lead. Edwards took care of the rest,
returning interceptions 25 yards and 45 yards on consecutive
plays to blow the game open.

The Blue Devils are guaranteed of their first winning season
since going 8-4 in 1994, while N.C. State (3-6, 0-6) has its
worst league record since going 0-6 in 1959.

Neither team looked particularly sharp offensively in this one,
combining for six interceptions and eight turnovers. In the end,
Edwards' one-man show finally gave the Blue Devils the push they
needed.

The Wolfpack, struggling badly in coach Dave Doeren's first
year, got a 73-yard punt return for a touchdown from Rashard
Smith to take a third-quarter lead then an 80-yard touchdown
pass from Brandon Mitchell to Quintin Payton for a 20-17 lead
with 6:37 left.

On Payton's touchdown, Edwards had the last chance to bring
Payton down, but the receiver broke free around the 10 and ran
into the end zone.

Edwards got that one back, following Connette's keeper with a
terrific individual effort to tip Mitchell's desperation pass
into the air, haul it in and run it back for the 25-yard score
that gave Duke a 31-20 lead. And his 45-yard return seconds
later after Pete Thomas' interception ensured that the Blue
Devils weren't going to let this one get away.

Duke's Jamison Crowder added seven catches for 134 yards,
including a 75-yard catch in the opening quarter to set up a
4-yard touchdown keeper by Anthony Boone.

When it was over, Duke's players jogged to the student section
of Wallace Wade Stadium to celebrate while the Wolfpack walked
dejectedly back to the locker room after a fifth-straight loss.

Mitchell threw for 148 yards on 7-for-18 passing with two
interceptions for N.C. State, while Shadrach Thornton ran for
103 yards.
