Duke spotted Wake Forest two touchdowns before turning the engines on and winning 28-21. But once the Blue Devils got going, they got going: Duke scored on four of five possessions.

With the win, Duke matches the school record for victories, set by Wallace Wade in the 1940's. It also sets up a most interesting game in Chapel Hill to end the regular season.

After a disastrous start, UNC is now 6-5 with Saturday's 80-20 win over ODU.
