Duke 48, No. 24 Miami (Fla.) 30 Box Score
Brandon Connette rushed for a career-high four touchdowns and threw for a fifth, and Duke upset No. 24 Miami 48-30 on Saturday to take control of the league's messy Coastal Division. Connette, the Blue Devils' change-of-pace quarterback, had touchdown runs of 1, 2, 3 and 4 yards, and threw a 22-yard TD to Shaq Powell. He moved into first place on Duke’s all-time rushing touchdown list with 29, surpassing the total of 28 set by Tom Davis (1941-44). Connette was also the first Duke quarterback to amass 10 rushing and 10 passing touchdowns in a single season and was responsible for at least five touchdowns for the second time this season.
Robert Nelson sealed Saturday's win with another big play in the fourth quarter. Nelson returned his second interception 23 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter and No. 21 Arizona State maintained control of the Pac-12 South. Nelson has an interception in four of the last five games and has five in that span overall including two this week against Oregon State. He collected ASU's third pick-six of the season.
Kansas State's Jack Cantele had never tried a game-winning field goal, not as a kid growing up in Wichita or as the star kicker at Kapaun Mt. Carmel High School. So when the sophomore drilled a 41-yarder with 3 seconds remaining Saturday, his fourth field goal of the game, he leaped into the air in a wild celebration. The kick gave the Wildcats a 33-31 victory against TCU and made them bowl eligible for the fourth consecutive season.
