ACC Football Roundup: West Rowan’s Dorty shines for Wake in loss

Associated Press
ANNAPOLIS, Md. ó Running the triple option is no easy chore, especially for a sophomore quarterback making his first college start.
The task becomes even more complicated playing in a driving rainstorm with a water-logged football.
Navy’s Kriss Proctor answered the challenge Saturday, deftly running for 89 yards and a touchdown in a soggy 13-10 win over Wake Forest.
Subbing for injured Ricky Dobbs (left knee), Proctor carried 23 times and didn’t pass once. Coming in, his lone experience over two seasons was playing the mop-up role in a 63-14 win over Rice two weeks earlier.
Riley Skinner went 13 of 25 for 173 yards for Wake Forest. His 15-yard touchdown throw to Devon Brown made it 13-10 with 7:41 left, but the Demon Deacons got only one first down the rest of the way.
The game was a rematch of the 2008 EagleBank Bowl, in which Skinner went 11 for 11 in leading Wake Forest to a 29-19 victory.
Former West Rowan star Tristan Dorty was credited with 10 tackles.
Duke 17, Maryland 13
DURHAM ó Thaddeus Lewis threw for 371 yards and two touchdowns and Duke held off Maryland 17-13 on Saturday.
The ACC’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.
Notre Dame 20, Boston College 16
SOUTH BEND, Ind. ó Golden Tate had 11 catches for 128 yards and two touchdowns to lead Notre Dame to a 20-16 victory over Boston College on Saturday, ending a six-game losing streak to the Eagles.
Notre Dame (5-2) came up with three interceptions in the second half, the final one with 98 seconds left. The last five games the Fighting Irish had played were decided in the final minute.
The Eagles (4-3) repeatedly burned the Notre Dame defense as Dave Shinskie threw for a season-high 279 yards and a touchdown, but the Irish came up with big plays, including two interceptions by Kyle McCarthy.
Jimmy Clausen was 26 of 39 passing for 246 yards.
