DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Sean Renfree threw for 314 yards and four touchdowns to lead Duke past Memphis 38-14 Saturday night.
Renfree went 26 of 37 passing with TDs totaling 37 and 31 yards to Conner Vernon, 16 yards to Desmond Scott and 8 yards to Brandon Connette for the Blue Devils (3-1). Duke had 503 total yards of offense compared to Memphis' 152 and are off to their best start since 2008.
Connette also had a 4-yard touchdown run for the Blue Devils. Duke had four turnovers - two were in the red zone and a third was returned for a touchdown. However, they held Memphis (0-4) to less than 100 total yards until late in the third quarter.
Wynton McManus took an interception 4 yards for a score, and Tevin Jones added a 2-yard touchdown run for the Tigers. They led 14-7 in the second quarter, but couldn't hold on. The Tigers have lost 35 of 40 games since 2009.
