Durham, NC (Sports Network) - Thaddeus Lewis threw for 371 yards and two touchdowns as the Blue Devils held off the Maryland Terrapins, 17-13, in an Atlantic Coast Conference game at Wallace Wade Stadium.

The victory marks the first time Duke (4-3, 2-1 ACC) has won back-to-back conference games since 1994.

The Blue Devils forced two turnovers in the final four minutes, one coming on a fumbled punt recovered by Brandon King, the other on a Vincent Ray interception.

Chris Turner was 16-of-23 through the air for Maryland (2-6, 1-3), for 182 yards and a touchdown in the team's third straight setback.

Duke took a 7-0 lead with 7:24 left in the first quarter when Justin Lewis hit Varner with a 24-yard scoring pass.

Nick Ferrara booted field goals of 25 and 40 yards to bring Maryland within a point at 7-6 with 8:34 left in the first half.

Will Snyderwine's 35-yard boot with 3:31 left in the second quarter built Duke's lead to 10-6, which is where it stood at halftime.

Lewis found Danny Parker with a one-yard touchdown throw with 5:35 left in the third quarter to give the Blue Devils a 17-6 advantage.

Turner and Davin Meggett combined on a 67-yard touchdown play with 4:30 remaining in the third quarter to cut Duke's lead to four points, but the Terrapins could draw no closer.
