DURHAM, N.C. (AP) – Duke scored three touchdowns in the first quarter and did all its scoring in the first half, then held off a Northwestern comeback to earn a 30-23 win in a non-conference game.
Duke was efficient on both sides of the ball early on, scoring on six of its first eight possessions behind Gunnar Holmberg.
Holmberg completed 31 of 44 passes for a career-high 314 yards and a touchdown.
