Tools

By Alabama News Network

Brandon Connette threw three touchdowns passes and ran for two more to lead Duke to a 38-31 win over Troy on Saturday.
    
Connette had 324 yards passing and 55 rushing. The five touchdowns are a career high for Connette, who threw for four scores in last week's 58-55 loss to Pitt.
    
Josh Snead also had 108 yards rushing for the Blue Devils (3-2), who snapped a two-game losing streak with the victory.
    
Corey Robinson had 354 yards passing and two touchdowns for Troy (2-3), which lost its third in a row. Jordan Chunn added two touchdowns on the ground.
    
A holding penalty negated a 56-yard touchdown catch by Troy's Chandler Worthy with 9:37 remaining that would have given Trojans the lead.
    
Duke's defense struggled in recent weeks, yielding 344 yards rushing in its loss to Georgia Tech two weeks ago and 424 yards passing to Pittsburgh last week.
