BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Bryan Randall ran for one touchdown and passed for another score Saturday and Virginia Tech won its first game as an Atlantic Coast Conference member, 41-17 over Duke.

The Hokies (2-1, 1-0 ACC) dominated a beleaguered Blue Devils team (0-3, 0-1 ACC) decimated by injuries and playing its third straight away game.

Randall finished 12-for-24 with two interceptions. Richard Johnson also had two TDs, throwing a 34-yard pass to Josh Hyman in the second quarter and catching another in the third quarter.

Duke managed only 197 yards on offense and for most of the game depended on trick plays and unorthodox formations to advance the ball.

Without receivers Senterrio Landrum and Deonto McCormick, both injured in a 22-20 loss to Connecticut, the Blue Devils kept the ball on the ground. Quarterbacks Mike Schneider, Chris Dapolito and Curt Dukes combined for just six passes for 89 yards.

With the game out of reach, Dukes launched a 35-yard pass to Jomar Wright for a TD.

In the first half, the Blue Devils' longest pass play came on a punt fake by Trey McDonald, who connected with Andy Roland for 9 yards and a first down, setting up a 28-yard TD run by Deon Adams.

The Hokies came back in the second quarter, overpowering Duke's line that was playing without injured defensive end Phillip Alexander, and scored 24 points to put the game out of reach.

Tech drove down the field and Justin Hamilton dived 1 yard to tie it at 7. Brandon Pace then made it 10-7 with a 21-yard field goal.

Johnson launched his first career TD pass with five minutes left in the half, launching a 34-yard pass to Hyman on a reverse from Randall.

With 1:05 left in the half, Randall scrambled out of the pocket on a broken play and zigzagged 30 yards to make it 24-7.
