Defensive Line: B+
Overall it was a solid day at the office for the defensive line. Outside of a few early runs where Duke found a hole between the tackles, the group moved the line of scrimmage back and plugged running lanes all afternoon.

The star of this group from Saturday was sophomore Isaiah Foskey, who chipped in a sack, 1.5 tackles for loss, a pass deflection, and 2 QB hurries. His sack and one of his QB hurries both came on 3rd downs in the red zone that forced a field goal.

Kurt Hinish added a sack of his own and 2 tackles for loss, Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa led the group with 4 total tackles, and Adetokunbo Ogundeji had a fumble recovery late in the 4th quarter.

Daelin Hayes was relatively quiet, but that didn’t prove to be much of a factor as this unit is one of the deepest on the team and one of the most talented groups in the ACC.

With the impact and potential Foskey showed Saturday, this defensive line is only going to get better, and that is scary to think about.
