Hines had 102 yards rushing on 12 carries that included scoring runs of six and 57 yards. Parr was 13-of-21 passing for 173 yards. He tossed a 26-yard touchdown pass to Dominic Thieman and a 62-yarder to Davie Henderson.
Chad Mirolo kicked a 27-yard field goal for Walsh late in the third quarter.
Duquesne won its 12th-straight home opener in the first meeting between the schools.
