Duke takes early lead on Virginia Tech

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Duke just took a 7-0 lead on Virginia Tech with Thaddeus Lewis' 48-yard touchdown pass. This is not surprising. First, Lewis is the better quarterback on the field. Second, the Blue Devils almost beat the Hokies last year in Lane Stadium with their backup quarterback. Duke came to play today, and has some confidence from what they almost did a year ago. That being said, Virginia Tech is the better team and I still expect the Hokies to win. It's very early, but Duke will push this Virginia Tech team today. The Blue Devils aren't a pushover anymore.
