Jones, Duke offense roll past Temple in Independence Bowl
SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — Temple was making big special-teams plays, returning interceptions for touchdowns and looking like a team that might crush Duke for a big postseason win.
But the Owls had one problem that couldn't be overcome: Coach David Cutcliffe doesn't lose in Shreveport.

An up close look awaits Saturday when Jones and the Blue Devils (5-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) visit the Panthers (3-4, 2-1).
"He's 6-5, he has (Duke coach) David (Cutcliffe) as his quarterbacks coach," Narduzzi said. "Got a gun arm. He can also move in the pocket. He's elusive."

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — This will be a battle of the backups.

With Jones out, Duke turns to Harris at QB
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke has to replace perhaps its most irreplaceable player.
