For the second straight week in the confines of Rooney Field, Duquesne registered their fourth straight win, blanking Wagner 38-0.

Coming into the homecoming game this past weekend, Tommy Stuart threw for 11 touchdowns with just under 950 yards through the air. After the win, Stuart added four touchdowns to his name, along with 238 yards.

A.J. Hines got the scoring going for the Dukes on a 33-yard run on only the second play for Duquesne. The defense then stepped up and intercepted Wagner quarterback Donald Glenn, which set up a Stuart strike to Nehari Crawford for his seventh touchdown of the year. Stuart never took his foot off the gas, as a few drives later he took his squad down the field on six plays to cap off a 56 yard drive, with a 23-yard throw to Kellon Taylor.

The second half proved to be just as impressive for Duquesne, as Tommy Stuart linked up with Nehari Crawford yet again, this time on a season-long 79-yard touchdown pass. Stew Allen then tallied his first career touchdown reception early in the fourth from 17-yards out to make the score 35-0 in favor of Duquesne.

A fumble plagued Wagner on the following possession, which gave way for Bryan Fegley to split the uprights on his first career field goal from 20 yards out to round out the scoring in the game.

Duquesne will look to continue their dominance this Saturday when they take on Robert Morris from Moon, Pennsylvania. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
