Hurricanes Squeak Past Duke 24-14

Kyle Wright returned from an injury to throw a game-sealing touchdown pass to DajLeon Farr with 2:15 left, and Miami escaped an upset bid by Duke for the second straight year by beating the Blue Devils 24-14 on Saturday.Wright was 19-of-23 for 230 yards and two touchdowns for the Hurricanes (4-1, 1-0), who won their Atlantic Coast Conference opener for the first time in three years.

The Hurricanes led 10-0 at halftime. Miami hasn’t allowed a first-half point in four home games this season.

Antonio Dixon sacked Lewis for a 12-yard loss on the game’s first play, setting up a three-and-out, and Miami got the ball for the first time at the Duke 46. The Hurricanes needed eight plays to score from there, with Wright finding Kayne Farquharson for a 5-yard touchdown pass with 8:34 left in the opening quarter.

It was only the second catch of the season for Farquharson, and it was a good one: He found a seam near the back of the end zone and stretched his 6-foot-2 frame high to grab Wright’s hard-thrown pass.

Francesco Zampogna’s 47-yard field goal 5 minutes later made it 10-0, but the Hurricanes didn’t score again in the half, even though Wright was 10-for-11 in the opening two quarters and Miami held a 200-112 lead in total offense.
