DURHAM, N.C. - Duke coach David Cutcliffe believes his offense will keep moving no matter who's in at quarterback.
Heading into Saturday's game against No. 10 Clemson, the Blue Devils have thrived behind fifth-year senior starter Sean Renfree. But the Blue Devils have also proven they can move the ball with sophomore backup Anthony Boone, a sign of the program's improved depth that has helped Duke stay in contention for an Atlantic Coast Conference division title.
The Blue Devils (6-3, 3-2 ACC) are tied atop the Coastal Division and are bowl eligible for the first time since 1994. Renfree has thrown for nearly 1,900 yards and 11 touchdowns to lead an offense averaging 32 points. But Boone and fellow backup Brandon Connette have filled in capably when Renfree has been hurt this year.
