Sep 27, 2009 - 2:48 AM DURHAM, N.C.(AP) -- Thaddeus Lewis threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another score to help Duke beat North Carolina Central 49-14 in the Bull City Gridiron Classic on Saturday night.

It was the first-ever matchup between the two schools, which are located a couple of miles from each other.

The Blue Devils scored on their first three possessions to claim a 21-0 lead. North Carolina Central (0-4) scored two touchdowns - Tim Shankle's 1-yard run and Jeffery Henderson's 83-yard interception return, cutting the margin to seven.

But Duke responded with 28 unanswered points to pull away from the Eagles.

Duke linebacker Vincent Rey set a school record with his third touchdown off a fumble. He scored on a 16-yard fumble return in the third quarter to give the Blue Devils a 42-14 lead.
