Duke Stays Hot, Slips Past Maryland, 17-13

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Thaddeus Lewis threw for 371 yards and two touchdowns and Duke held off Maryland 17-13 on Saturday.

The Atlantic Coast Conference's leading passer was 30 of 43 with touchdowns covering 24 yards to Donovan Varner and 1 yard to Danny Parker in his third straight 300-yard performance for the Blue Devils (4-3, 2-1).

Duke never trailed, outgained Maryland 394-249, withstood the Terrapins' late charges and held on for the Blue Devils' third win in four games. They also claimed consecutive conference victories for the first time since 1994.

Chris Turner was 16-for-23 for 182 yards with a 67-yard touchdown to Davin Meggett for the Terrapins (2-6, 1-3), and he moved past Boomer Esiason into second place on the school's career passing list. But Turner couldn't keep Maryland from losing its third straight game and fifth in the last six.
