Recap: Duke vs. Tulane

Durham, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Jamison Crowder had 119 yards on six catches and the Duke defense scored a pair of touchdowns, as the Blue Devils cruised to a 47-13 win over Tulane in non-conference action at Wallace Wade Stadium.

Six different players scored touchdowns to help the Blue Devils (4-0) continue their best start in 20 years. Anthony Boone completed 15-of-27 passes for 181 yards, and Duke ran for 256 yards (6.1 ypc) and four TDs as a team despite Boone being the team's only player with double-digit carries.

Lazedrick Thompson carried 19 times for a game-high 124 yards and a TD in a losing effort for the Green Wave (1-3).

Duke marched 75 yards in seven plays on the game's opening drive, which ended with a one-yard touchdown run by Thomas Sirk.

Tulane answered right back with an 11-play, 85-yard drive, capped by Dontrell Hilliard's five-yard touchdown run.

But Duke began to take control from that point. Josh Snead scored on a two- yard run to make it a 14-7 game with 4:11 to play in the first quarter. The defense forced a three-and-out on the ensuing possession, and the snap sailed over Tulane punter Peter Picerelli's head and out of the back of the end zone for a safety.

A 31-yard field goal by Duke kicker Ross Martin represented the only points of the second quarter, as the Blue Devils went into the locker room with a 19-7 halftime advantage.

Duke's defense began the second half with another three-and-out to get the ball back to the offense, and Boone finished off a seven-play drive with a one-yard touchdown plunge to make it a 26-7 game.

Tulane finally answered on its next possession with a four-yard TD run by Thompson following a 12-play, 93-yard drive. However, the Green Wave would draw no closer the rest of the way.

Duke's Shaun Wilson scored on a seven-yard run late in the third quarter. In the fourth, Bryon Fields (22 yards) and Joseph Ajeigbe (12 yards) each returned an interception for a touchdown.

The Blue Devils defense forced five turnovers for the game.
