The 4-1 overall record is an undeniably positive sign for the Miami Hurricanes. Being 3-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, however, powers the optimism behind Al Golden's young team.
Junior Stephen Morris set an ACC record for passing yards in a single game with his 566-yard performance against North Carolina State. Even after being held to 40 yards rushing against the Wolfpack, Duke Johnson has emerged as a dynamic player and a great complement to power running back Mike James.
Phillip Dorsett is also a deep-ball threat with back-to-back games of 184 and 191 yards receiving, respectively. After Davon Johnson stepped up against Georgia Tech, sophomore Rashawn Scott followed with six receptions, 180 yards and two touchdowns—all career-best statistics.
