UVa. loses wild one at Duke

Virginia got 649 yards of total offense, but the defense could not stop Duke in a wild fourth quarter that saw the Blue Devils score last on a 35-yard touchdown run by Desmond Scott en route to a 55-48 Duke win on Saturday.

Keith Payne scored from six yards out with 2:26 to go to cap a fourth-quarter UVa. rally that turned a 47-35 deficit into a 48-47 ‘Hoos lead. But Duke (3-6, 1-4 ACC) moved the ball 91 yards on 10 plays, getting a conversion on a fourth-and-18 pass from Sean Renfree to Donovan Varner before Scott ran almost untouched on a pitch play down the left sideline with 40 seconds left.

Marc Verica drove Virginia (4-5, 1-4 ACC) to the Duke 40 before throwing an incomplete pass into the Duke end zone on the game’s final play.

Verica threw for a school-record 417 yards and had four touchdown passes, but also threw three interceptions, which the Blue Devils converted into 16 points.
