Shocker! Renfree almost pitches a perfect game as Blue Devils sink host Navy

Sean Renfree is apparently back.

Duke quarterback Sean Renfree
Duke’s sophomore quarterback completed his first 16 passes of the game, finishing an unlikely 28-for-30 for 314 yards and a touchdown and running for two more as the Blue Devils stunned homestanding Navy 34-31.

Duke (2-6) snapped a six-game losing streak as well as a 10-game slide against Division I-FBS opposition.

But the Blue Devils almost had a disaster, as the Middies (5-3) scored three touchdowns and made the two-point conversion each time in the fourth quarter.

Navy got its final points with 2:34 left, as Ricky Dobbs hit Aaron Santiago on a 12-yard touchdown pass and then found him again for the conversion.

Navy got one last gasp, but ran out of downs at its own 43 with six seconds left.
