Troy, AL (SportsNetwork.com) - Anthony Boone passed for 268 yards and a touchdown, and carried the ball nine times for 47 yards and two scores as the Duke Blue Devils outlasted the Troy Trojans, 34-17, in a non-conference tilt at Veterans Memorial Stadium Saturday.

Silvers put Troy up less than six minutes into the contest with a two-yard touchdown run, giving the Trojans an early 7-0 advantage. Duke kicker Ross Martin tacked on a 24-yard field goal for the Blue Devils later in the period, cutting Troy's lead to 7-3 at the end of the first.

Just six seconds into the second quarter, Troy built on its lead with a Jordan Chunn one-yard scoring run to give the Trojans a 14-3 edge. Duke took over in the rest of the half, though.

Troy finally got back on the board when Ryan Kay connected on a 29-yard field goal attempt with 4:32 left on the third-quarter clock. But Boone plunged into the end zone from five yards out with 1:48 remaining in the period to put Duke up 31-17.

Martin drilled another field goal attempt, this one from 48 yards out, with 10:53 left in the game to push Duke's lead to 34-17. That field goal would serve as the final points in the game.
