DURHAM — Duke kind of outed Virginia on Saturday during a 31-3 win, no more so than when quarterback Thad Lewis and receiver Eron Riley hooked up for a 30-yard touchdown in third quarter.
On the rare play when Riley was facing single coverage, Duke's offense caught Virginia napping. Duke coach David Cutcliffe said after the game that he was so eager for center Brian Morgan to snap the ball and start the play that he eventually started running with Riley down the sideline.
Then the 54-year old said, realizing Riley would leave him in the dust and that it would be caught on film, he pulled up.
Listen to the best quarterback-to-receiver combo in Duke history (18 career touchdowns together) talk about how they made the quick-snap screen play, with Riley outsprinting the Virginia secondary, work.
