Duke Football in Action (sort of)!

Since no original reporting will go into this piece, I will simply copy and paste from GoDuke.com. (Takes me back to the days of The Chronicle) But rest assured DudeSpin will be there at the spring game April 19 to provide a complete report, and if legally allowed to do so, action pics!

DURHAM, N.C. – Re'quan Boyette recorded 98 all-purpose yards and Michael Tauiliili returned an interception 42 yards for a touchdown to highlight Duke's 100-play football scrimmage on Saturday afternoon at Wallace Wade Stadium.

Boyette carried the football 15 times for 65 yards and one touchdown while catching four passes for an additional 33 yards. Fellow running back Clifford Harris added 46 yards on the ground on 10 attempts.

In the passing game, Thaddeus Lewis completed 17-of-23 throws for 124 yards and one touchdown while Zack Asack was 17-of-32 through the air for 122 yards. Sheldon Bell led all receivers with six grabs for 60 yards while Eron Riley had five catches for 34 yards and one touchdown. Ryan Wood and Garrett Utt contributed three receptions apiece.

The Blue Devil defense registered five turnovers as Tauiliili, Eddie Morgan, Catron Gainey and Adrian Aye-Darko had interceptions and Wesley Oglesby recovered one fumble. Tauiliili added one quarterback sack on the day while Patrick Egboh logged two tackles for loss including a sack. Jabari Marshall broke up a pair of passes in the Duke secondary.
