DURHAM, N.C. -- Riley Skinner passed for a career-high 372 yards and a school-record five touchdowns to help Wake Forest defeat Duke 45-34 on Saturday.

Skinner completed 28 of 38 passes and did not throw an interception for the Demon Deacons (5-7, 3-5 Atlantic Coast Conference), who ended their season by snapping a five-game losing streak.

Devon Brown caught a pair of touchdown passes to help Wake Forest get its 10th consecutive win over Duke. Marshall Williams added eight catches for 119 yards and a touchdown for the Demon Deacons.

Thaddeus Lewis passed for 387 yards, three touchdowns and an interception for the Blue Devils (5-7, 3-5), who ended the season on a four-game skid after starting the season 5-3.

Lewis, who added a 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, became the 60th player in Football Bowl Subdivision history to pass for 10,000 career yards.
