Andrew Luck matched a career high by throwing four touchdown passes in No. 6 Stanford’s 44-14 rout of Duke yesterday in Durham, N.C.
Luck was 20 of 28 for 290 yards with TD throws of 60 and 3 yards to Coby Fleener, 10 yards to Chris Owusu, and 3 yards to Zach Ertz.
Stanford (2-0) won its 10th straight game and claimed a rare regular-season win on the East Coast while denying the Blue Devils (0-2) their first Top 25 win since 1994.
Lee Butler returned an interception 76 yards for a touchdown to pull Duke to 10-7 late in the first half. Luck then led four straight touchdown drives to turn it into a rout, before exiting one play into the fourth quarter.
Owusu finished with seven catches for 106 yards and Jeremy Stewart added a 30-yard touchdown run for the Cardinal, who were making their fifth regular-season trip east since 1997. They had been 1-3 in the previous four.
Virginia 34, Indiana 31 - The visiting Cavaliers scored 11 points in the final 96 seconds, getting a 23-yard field goal from Robert Randolph as time expired to beat the Hoosiers.
It was Mike London’s first road win in two seasons as coach at Virginia (2-0).
Indiana (0-2) rallied from a 20-point second-half deficit, only to give away an 8-point lead in the final two minutes.
Perry Jones had a 3-yard TD run for Virginia with 1:36 remaining, and Michael Rocco threw to Paul Freedman for the 2-point conversion to tie the score at 31.
Indiana got the ball back, but on third and 3 from its 23, Cam Johnson stole the ball out of quarterback Edward Wright-Baker’s hands. That gave Virginia the ball at the Hoosiers’ 14, setting up Randolph’s winning field goal.
Florida St. 62, Charleston Southern 10 - At Tallahassee, Fla., EJ Manuel threw for a career-best 329 yards and four touchdowns as the fifth-ranked Seminoles (2-0) rolled in a tuneup for next week’s showdown against top-ranked Oklahoma.
The Buccaneers, who lost, 62-0, last week at Central Florida, didn’t complete a pass or have a first down in the first half, and trailed, 34-0.
Manuel hit Bert Reed on two short TD passes while the Seminoles’ defense limited Charleston Southern to 84 total yards.
Virginia Tech 17, East Carolina 10 - Josh Oglesby ran for the go-ahead 10-yard score with 7:30 left, helping the 11th-ranked Hokies give coach Frank Beamer his 200th win at the school.
David Wilson ran for 138 yards to lead visiting Virginia Tech (2-0) and quarterback Logan Thomas (8 of 20) struggled in his second career start while the Hokies committed 12 penalties and two turnovers, but their defense shut down the Pirates’ high-powered passing attack and held East Carolina (0-2) to 112 total yards.
Wake Forest 34, N.C. State 27 - Danny Dembry had two TDs and Tanner Price threw for 297 yards and a touchdown as the Demon Deacons held off the visiting Wolfpack in the conference opener for both teams.
Michael Campanaro also caught five balls for 93 yards and a TD, adding a 40-yard score on an option pass in his only attempt for Wake Forest (1-1), which bounced back from last week’s overtime loss to Syracuse with its fifth straight home win over N.C. State (1-1).
