QB Anthony Boone out indefinitely
Coach David Cutcliffe said Sunday that Boone does not need surgery to repair the broken bone but has no timetable for his return. Boone, who made his second career start against the Tigers, got hurt in the second quarter.
Backup Brandon Connette came into the game and led the Blue Devils to the victory with back-to-back touchdown drives in the fourth quarter.
Connette will start until Boone returns.
"We're going to run our offense," Cutcliffe said. "We're going to run it and throw it and have the balance that we were hoping to have coming into this season. We've got to continue to prove that we're a more balanced team, that we can run and throw the football."
Freshman Parker Boehme will be Connette's backup.
