DURHAM, N.C. -- As the weather got worse, Corbin McCarthys smile got bigger. It was going to be a good day for defense, especially Dukes defense.It was backyard football, said McCarthy, Dukes senior safety. Before I even put pads on today, I was a giddy 12-year-old kid. There was barely anyone in the stands, but it didnt matter. It was one of the purest forms of football Ive played in a long time, and it felt absolutely great.Daniel Jones and Parker Boehme each threw a touchdown pass as Duke beat Army 13-6 on Saturday.The Blue Devils (3-3) jumped out to a 13-0 lead early in the second quarter, and their defense stifled Armys rushing attack to hold on for the victory in pouring rain. Duke caused three turnovers, including a forced fumble by McCarthy to set up his teams first touchdown.Both teams struggled on offense as Hurricane Matthew made its way through North Carolina. The storm produced stiff wind and driving rain for hours leading up to the game and throughout the contest, making every punt, pass and kick difficult.The teams combined for 93 passing yards, averaged 3.4 yards per play and had as many punts (17) as first downs.Probably the MVP of the day was Matthew, meaning the storm, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. He was the baddest dude on the field for both teams. But we got a win when it was not as perfect as you would like.Andy Davidson rushed for 120 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown run late in the first half, for the Black Knights (3-2).Army entered the game averaging an FBS-leading 374 rushing yards per game but ran for a season-low 165 yards on 43 attempts against Duke.Boehme threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to tight end Erich Schneider after Davidson lost a fumble at the Army 9 on the Black Knights second possession. Jones tossed a 22-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Young for Dukes other score.THE TAKEAWAYArmy: The Black Knights outplayed Duke after falling behind 13-0, but they could not sustain drives. Army converted two of 13 third-down plays and failed all four times on fourth down, including three times on fourth-and-1 runs. Credit Duke, Army coach Jeff Monken said. They played very physical. We couldnt block them. We couldnt sustain a block. It was disappointing.Duke: The Blue Devils gutted out a victory, but they still need three more wins to qualify for a fifth consecutive bowl game. That will be a difficult task against Dukes six remaining opponents, each of which is bigger, faster and more talented than Army.FOURTH AND STRONGAfter stopping Army four times on fourth down, Duke has held its opponents to no fourth-down conversions on eight attempts this season. The Black Knights were 9 of 11 converting on fourth down in their first four games.Dukes fourth-down stops were huge. One set up Dukes second touchdown, and another stopped the Black Knights from converting a blocked punt into points after they moved to the Duke 4. The Blue Devils amped up the pressure on fourth down, blitzing defenders who knifed through the line to make tackles in the backfield.INJURY REPORTDuke lost starting center Austin Davis and leading rusher Jela Duncan to leg injuries. Neither player returned to the game. Left guard Zach Harmon moved over to center in the absence of Davis, and he successfully executed each of his snaps in the harsh conditions.WET AND WILDThe teams played in an almost-empty stadium due to the weather. But a few fans channeled the creativity of their basketball brethren, the Cameron Crazies, and cheered without shirts while wearing swimsuits, swim caps and goggles.UP NEXTArmy: After playing four of their first five games on the road, the Black Knights return home against Louisiana-Lafayette for their first home game since Sept. 10.Duke: The Blue Devils visit No. 7 Louisville on Friday night to kick off the second half of their season.

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Patrick Mahomes and Texas Tech have lost plenty of high-scoring games. Winning a defensive struggle was a new experience.Clayton Hatfield kicked a 37-yard field goal in the second overtime, after Mahomes scrambled 15 yards for a score in the first extra session, and the Red Raiders beat TCU 27-24 on Saturday to break a three-game losing streak.I cant remember an ugly win like this that we had here, so to find a way when everything was kind of going against us says a lot about their character, coach Kliff Kingsbury said. Hopefully we can build off this.A week after their fourth loss in less than two seasons when scoring more than 50 points, the Red Raiders (4-4, 2-3) overcame a season-low 345 yards and had their fewest points in a victory since a 20-10 home win over TCU in 2013.Mahomes matched an FBS record with 734 yards passing on 52 of 88 passing, and set the FBS mark with 819 total yards, in last weeks 66-59 loss to Oklahoma in a game when those two teams combined for 1,708 total yards.Against the Horned Frogs, Mahomes was 24 of 39 for 206 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.It was a pass play called and it wasnt open, Mahomes said of his TD run in overtime. They were covering up pretty much everything all day. I just opened up and I just ran.TCU (4-4, 2-3) forced the second overtime on Desmon Whites incredible 25-yard TD catch from backup quarterback Foster Sawyer. White caught the pass despite having a defender on his hip, and secured the ball against his helmet to complete the score. The play stood after officials did a replay review of the catch.With the first possession in the second overtime, TCU came up empty when Brandon Hatfield -- not related to the Tech kicker, shanked a 40-yard field goal attempt , his third miss of the game.The previous two times the teams met in Fort Worth, they combined for 109 points both times. Tech won 56-53 in triple overtime in 2012, and TCU broke Big 12 and school records in an 82-27 win two years ago. The Frogs won 55-52 in Lubbock last year.Sawyer took over after dual-threat quarterback Kenny Hills last paass was intercepted .ddddddddddddHill was 16 of 29 passing for 160 yards, and has now struggled in three consecutive games since back-to-back 400-yard passing performances.For years, you find ways to win them, then you find ways to lose them Patterson said. Weve got to get back on the track of finding ways to win them. Its pretty simple.THE TAKEAWAYTexas Tech: Mahomes showed his grit in helping the Red Raiders win. A month after hurting his shoulder, Mahomes took another hard hit in the second overtime, but said he was OK. The win helped the Red Raiders in their pursuit for a bowl berth, now needing only to split their last four games to get bowl eligible.TCU: The Horned Frogs defense had one of its best games overall, making some changes that surprised Tech. Our whole thing was make them beat themselves, make them have patience, make them run the ball, Patterson said. But the inconsistency of the offense has to be concerning. The Frogs have been held to 24 points in three consecutive games after scoring at least 33 in their first five.MISSED FGs TO TDsBoth of Texas Techs touchdowns in regulation came on 80-yard drives after missed field goals. Mahomes threw a 33-yard TD pass to Reginald Davis early in the second quarter to tie the game at 7-7. The latter miss was in the fourth quarter, leading to Mahomes 8-yard TD to Dylan Cantrell with 1:28 left in regulation to tie the game. Mahomes also had an 11-yard run to convert fourth-and-3 on that tying drive.COACHS CATCHMahomes was scrambling away from pressure when he threw a pass away in the fourth quarter. The throw toward the TCU sideline was caught by Patterson, who reached up with two hands to make the grab.UP NEXTTexas Tech returns home next Saturday to play Texas.TCU plays at No. 8 Baylor, going to Waco next Saturday for the first time since their 61-58 loss there two years ago when the Bears overcame a 21-point deficit in the final 11 minutes.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Wholesale Jerseys 2019 NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale NFL Gear NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
