A&T's Kingsley Ifedi scores to cap an 86-yard drive in the first quarter.

DURHAM — Duke's offense roared to life after the first quarter, and the Blue Devils' defense manhandled A&T in a 45-17 victory on Friday night at Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium.

An 86-yard A&T drive that covered 20 plays and consumed 12:08 of the first quarter gave the Aggies (0-2) a 7-0 lead when quarterback Kingsley Ifedi rushed in from the 1. But three Mataeo Durant rushing touchdowns, the last with three seconds remaining before halftime, put the Blue Devils ahead at intermission.
