Jones, Terps Too Much for Duke, 42-25
November 14, 1998
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Randall Jones threw for two touchdowns and ran for one as Maryland beat Duke 42-25 Saturday.
Duke's Bobby Campbell threw an Atlantic Coast Conference-record seven interceptions and Maryland (3-7, 1-6 ACC) scored 28 points off Blue Devils turnovers.
Campbell's day of frustration earsed the mark of six by Florida State's Chris Weinke against North Carolina State earlier this season.
The loss guaranteed Duke (4-6, 2-5) a fourth consecutive losing season and dashed long-shot hopes for qualifying for a bowl.
Jones was just 6-of-13 for 98 yards with one interception, but he made touchdown throws of 28 yards to Moses Cruz and 3 to Matt Kalapinski. Jones also rushed 11 times for 115 yards, most coming on a 75-yard touchdown.
Campbell accounted for three TDs but the Blue Devils could not overcome their mistakes.
Maryland tied the game 14-14 in the first quarter on a 50-yard reverse by Jermaine Arrington and a 28-yard touchdown pass from Jones to Cruz.
Jones gave Maryland a 21-17 lead, its first, with 11:57 remaining in the half on 75-yard sprint through the right side.
Lamont Jordan pushed Maryland's lead to 35-17 on a 46-yard romp around left end with 10:59 left in the game. Jordan ended up with 68 yards on 15 carries.
Duke cut Maryland's lead to 35-25 with a 22-yard touchdown pass from Campbell to Richmond Flowers and a 2-point conversion throw to Terrence Dupree.
Maryland's Cliff Crosby iced it with a 52-yard TD return of his third interception of the game.
Renard Cox got the seventh interception off Campbell with 26 seconds to play.
