Wake Forest quarterback Tanner Price was dominant Saturday.

Quarterback Tanner Price had touchdowns rushing, receiving, and passing in Wake Forest’s 34-10 victory over Maryland in Winston-Salem, N.C., on Saturday.

Price was 26 of 36 through the air for 231 yards, scored on a 4-yard run, and caught a 4-yard TD pass from receiver Michael Campanaro — the trick-play master’s fourth career touchdown throw.


Price hit Campanaro with a 10-yard TD pass to become the first player in school history and the fourth Bowl Subdivision player this season to hit the touchdown trifecta. He joined Clemson’s C.J. Spiller as the only ACC players since 2000 to do it.

Josh Harris’s 1-yard TD run on the opening series put the Demon Deacons (4-3, 2-2) on their way to their fourth straight home victory over the Terrapins (5-2, 1-2).

Campanaro caught 11 passes to give him 217 career receptions — breaking Desmond Clark’s school record of 216. Campanaro finished with 122 yards receiving.

Maryland lost two of its starting receivers for the rest of the season with broken legs, coach Randy Edsall said. Deon Long broke the fibula and tibia in his right leg in the second quarter, and Stefon Diggs broke his fibula in the fourth.

Georgia Tech 56, Syracuse 0 — Zach Laskey had three of the Yellow Jackets’ seven rushing touchdowns in a surprising rout of the visiting Orange.


Georgia Tech (4-3, 3-2 ACC) ended a three-game losing streak by compiling 482 total yards, including 394 yards rushing.

The Yellow Jackets had 67 rushing attempts and threw only five passes, including Vad Lee’s 46-yard TD throw to Darren Waller early in the second half. Lee also ran for two touchdowns. Syracuse (3-4, 1-2) had 208 total yards.

Duke 35, Virginia 22 — Anthony Boone threw two TD passes and Brandon Connette ran for a score and threw for another as the Blue Devils rebounded from a 22-0 deficit in Charlottesville, Va.

Duke (5-2, 1-2 ACC) converted four fourth-down plays in the second half to come all the way back, and its defense held the Cavaliers to five straight three-and-outs. The loss was the fourth in a row for Virginia (2-5, 0-3).

Pittsburgh 35, Old Dominion 24 — Isaac Bennett ran for a career-high 240 yards and three touchdowns for the host Panthers (4-2), who shook off the upset-minded Monarchs (4-3) late.
