Pittsburgh 24, Duke 17

Pittsburgh junior running back Darrin Hall ran for touchdowns of 79, 92 and 4 yards as part of a 254-yard, 24-carry outing as the Panthers defeated Duke 24-17 on Saturday afternoon at Wallace Wade Stadium. Hall’s 92-yarder notched the longest touchdown run in school history, breaking a record that existed for 100 years and one day. His final touchdown concluded a 95-yard drive that provided the Panthers a 21-17 lead with 10:48 remaining. Entering the game, Hall had only 108 rushing yards and two touchdowns all season. Duke, which has lost its fourth game in a row, drove to the Pittsburgh 22-yard line before defensive back Jordan Whitehead intercepted a tipped Daniel Jones pass with 45 seconds left.

Appalachian State 37, Coastal Carolina 29

The Mountaineers found more come-from-behind magic, taking the lead midway through the third quarter en route to a 37-29 win over the Chanticleers at Kidd-Brewer Stadium. Quarterback Taylor Lamb threw two touchdowns, moving past Armanti Edwards for the most school history with 76 TD tosses.

Virginia Tech 57, UNC 7

No. 14 Virginia Tech dominated in all phases in a resounding 59-7 victory over North Carolina at Lane Stadium on Saturday. The Hokies scored touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams in setting school records for points and margin of victory in an ACC game. The Tar Heels lost to Virginia Tech for the 11th time in 14 meetings as ACC opponents. The Hokies defense suffocated the overmatched Tar Heels, forcing three turnovers (two interceptions) and posting six sacks and 13 tackles for loss.

Charlotte 25, UAB 24 (OT)

The 49ers got their first win of the year in dramatic fashion when coach Brad Lambert went for a win-or-lose two-point conversion in overtime. Charlotte converted on a reverse back pass to QB Hassan Klugh to win the homecoming game against the Blazers.


Georgia Tech 38, Wake Forest 24

Junior quarterback TaQuon Marshall rushed 23 times for 163 yards and two touchdowns to lead Georgia Tech to a 38-24 come-from-behind victory over Wake Forest on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium. Deacons quarterback John Wolford was 17-for-30 passing for 252 yards and two touchdowns, while Cade Carney rushed 19 times for 92 yards.
