Ross Martin kicked a 27-yard field goal with 2:22 left and No. 24 Duke beat North Carolina 27-25 on Saturday, completing the Blue Devils' improbable run to reach the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.
The Blue Devils (6-2, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat a ranked team for the first time since they stopped No. 13 Virginia in 1994, and beat one on the road for the first time since Stanford in 1971.
The loss was the fourth in a row for Virginia (2-5, 0-3), which gained just 7 yards in the third quarter after a fast start that made it seem like it would finally snap its losing streak.
The Midshipmen had as many turnovers as they had in their three other games — combined. They kept drawing penalty flags but their offense couldn't get anything going in the second half.
Virginia coach Mike London found little redeeming about the Cavaliers' final 30 minutes in Saturday's 42-17 loss to Duke.
"After the first quarter, I felt very comfortable," Boone said. "The first couple of series was kind of like flying bullets, getting used to things flying around, the speed of the game. ... After a while, though, it just kind of came back to the natural feel of the game."
"The more I could get on balls and throw during practice, the more I felt more comfortable," he added.
