"One of the first things that pleased me on both sides of the ball was so many young people making plays," Duke head coach David Cutcliffe said. "The play of Sean Renfree for the most part was consistent. He played the strategy of the game, threw the ball well and managed the offense well. The only negatives I saw were a couple of holding penalties in critical situations. Otherwise, I thought the offensive line played better than its played since we've been here."
Four Blue Devil running backs – Patrick Kurunwune, Desmond Scott, Josh Snead and Juwan Thompson – posted touchdowns on the ground with Snead bursting off tackle for a 49-yard scoring jaunt. Scott led the Blue Devils with 81 yards on four attempts with a long run of 51 yards while Kurunwune had 52 yards on four carries.
Campbell added one caused fumble and one pass break-up to his two fumble recoveries while junior safety Matt Daniels had one interception. Redshirt senior linebacker Abraham Kromah logged a pair of tackles for loss.
Duke opens the season on September 4 at home against Elon. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Wallace Wade Stadium.
