Duke freshman cornerback DeVon Edwards isn’t a big guy by football standards at 5’9 185.  But, he doesn’t really need to be with the speed he flashed on this 100-yard kickoff return against North Carolina State on Saturday.

The Blue Devils took a 10-0 lead into the locker room at halftime after an Anthony Boone 4-yard rush for a touchdown in the first quarter and a Ross Martin 36-yard field goal in the second.

Duke sits at 2-2 in the ACC Coastal division – 1 game back of leader Miami who they play next week.  The Blue Devils have rattled off four straight wins after starting the season 2-2.  Their most impressive win came October 26th in a 13-10 victory over No. 14 Virginia Tech.

North Carolina State scored 13 unanswered points to take the lead in the third quarter, but that 100-yard return from Edwards put the Blue Devils right back up 17-13.

NC State is leading in overall yardage 266-236, but add in that kickoff return and it’s a different story.  Boone has gone 13 of 23 for 139-yards, but has thrown 3 interceptions thus far for the Blue Devils.

Wolfpack running back Shadrach Thornton leads all rushers with 26 carries for 103 yards.
