Observations from Duke

EDWARD G. ROBINSONOctober 23, 2011 

Wake Forest sophomore quarterback Tanner Price, who completed 15 of 25 pass attempts for 215 yards, has now thrown a touchdown pass in seven consecutive games.

His first of two TD passes on Saturday came on a beautiful connection with junior Chris Givens in the first quarter. With his offensive line providing ample time, he moved left and then right toward the sideline before slinging a left-handed pass to Givens running back across the end zone.

Givens finished the day with six catches for 147 yards, his longest a 66-yard game-winning catch in the fourth quarter. He is now tied with former Wake receiver Wayne Baumgardner with four straight 100-receiving games. He also moved into the top 10 in school history with 133 career receptions and eighth all-time with 2,029 career receiving yards.

Duke's defensive front collected four sacks, and the defense held the Deacs to one yard in the third quarter and 81 total second-half offensive yards. The Deacs finished with 305 total yards.

Duke backup quarterback Anthony Boone rushed 10 times for a career-high 19 yards. He twice plunged into the end zone for the Blue Devils.
