Wilson powers Duke past Baylor

Duke vs Baylor football: Time, TV schedule, game preview, score

Quarterback play was outstanding, they played really well up front, and they're the kind of football team I like to watch.

Big offensive plays by both teams defined Baylor's 34-20 loss to Duke this afternoon at Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham, N.C.

Head coach Matt Rhule and Baylor lost to Duke on the road 34-20 to open up the season 0-3.

"He just made a fantastic play", Smith said.

Minutes later, Michael Carter knocked the ball loose from Smith on a sack and Drew Jordan recovered at Baylor's 26.

Teams heading in opposite directions meet Saturday when Baylor visits Duke. That move had been announced before it was disclosed that Anu Solomon, a graduate transfer from Arizona who started the first two games, went through the team's concussion protocol this week. In the third quarter alone, two 70-yard plus touchdowns for Baylor accounted for almost half of Baylor's total yardage. He took advantage of the opportunity and should be the permanent starter moving forward. "I think they need to play a game that they're not picked to win", Rhule said.

Duke held Baylor to 1 of 12 on third downs, and to just 57 yards rushing on 27 carries.

Next week against No. 2 Oklahoma, Smith should be the starter.

"I don't know if any quarterback can function in the world Zach's living in now", Rhule said. "But what will also happen is what we saw Shaun Wilson do". We're going to do everything right. Jones had only been sacked once as well. Baylor finished with five sacks, 12 tackles for loss and six quarterback hurries. Let's just go play and have fun.' That doesn't mean we're not going to work. "We preach it every day. We can definitely build on this". The Blue Devils responded with a quick scoring drive, capped by a 50-yard Wilson dash to the end zone.

BC government lifting provincial state of emergency
Wildfires continue to rage across B.C., the province warned, and those in affected communities should remain prepared. This means the Canadian Forces will be demobilizing members who've been working with the provincial wildfire service.

Wilson totaled 176 yards on the ground and another 32 in the air to spearhead the Blue Devils' offensive attack, while the defensive unit held the Bears to 1-for-12 on third downs and recorded three interceptions on the day.

Duke knows the danger of looking past against an opponent with a poor record and some befuddling losses - a team like Baylor. But on fourth-and-seven from the 36, Humphreys put severe pressure on Smith as he rolled out of the pocket, forcing an incomplete pass.

The Blue Devils came out of it with a win, admittedly, but there's plenty to address before they take on North Carolina next week.

Instead, the Blue Devils kept handing the ball to Shaun Wilson and Brittain Brown. The Bears had 11 penalties for 100 yards, with eight of them coming in the first half.

"Our defense did an awesome job", Platt said. "It wasn't pretty always, it wasn't ideal, but we were able to get it done". "I'm a guy from Texas, so I've seen what they can do".

After stopping the Bears, the Blue Devils drove 76 yards to Baylor's 2.

Duke's running backs, though, did not have a bad day.

. It's just the second meeting between the schools and the first since 1958.

Especially in the second half, when a number of Baylor turnovers gave Duke's offense the chance to put the game away, the Blue Devils stalled as the passing game continued to struggle. Smith connected with Platt on scores of 73 and 79 yards, after hitting Denzel Mims with a 44-yard score. Speedy wideout Chris Taylor was left all alone on a third-down wheel pattern, but ran his route into the sideline and stepped out of bounds before securing the ball, all but eliminating a touchdown with green grass in front of him. Jones was sacked five times and while he completed 20-of-35 passes for 193 yards, no touchdowns and one pick. Austin Parker kicked two field goals, including a career-long 45-yarder. The Bears missed the extra point, making the score 24-20 entering the final quarter.
