News:Anthony Boone completed 18-of-31 passes for 212 yards and four touchdowns Saturday against Virginia. He added 41 yards on seven rushes.
Analysis: A terrific performance for Anthony Boone, who clearly has a huge leg up on freshman Thomas Sirk in a battle to replace Sean Renfree a year from now. Still, it'd be hard to recommend Boone next week at Virginia Tech should Renfree not be available.
News:Anthony Boone will start in place of the injured Sean Renfree Saturday against Virginia, according to Stephen Wiseman of the Herald-Sun.
Analysis: Renfree is dressed, and will be available, but this is Anthony Boone's day to impress.
News:Anthony Boone hit on 8-of-11 passes for 54 yards in relief of injured starter Sean Renfree Saturday at Wake Forest.
Analysis:Anthony Boone ran three times for 10 yards and a touchdown. He's not capable of throwing the ball like Renfree, but could be a sneaky option if Renfree's injury proves serious.
News: Duke will be without running backs Desmond Scott and Josh Snead, as well as backup quarterback Brandon Connette Saturday at Boston College.
Analysis: Scott will miss his second game, Snead his third and Connette his first. Juwan Thompson will become a sneaky last minute plug in against a reeling Eagles squad, and Anthony Boone will see Connette's short yardage attempts.
News: Duke backup quarterback Brandon Connette (undisclosed) was injured in a loss to Stanford, and hasn't practiced this week.
Analysis: Connette is the Blue Devils short yardage rusher, and those attempts will go to freshman Anthony Boone if Connette can't go Saturday at Boston College. Boone already has two rushing touchdowns this season. God forbid they let a running back attempt to score from inside five yards.
