The Miami Hurricanes officially returned 16 offensive and defensive starters from the 2012 season, and Al Golden’s team won its season opener against the Florida Atlantic Owls.
Led by quarterback Stephen Morris and linebacker Denzel Perryman, the 'Canes defeated FAU 34-6.
Of course, new starters may have been on the field for the first snap of the game before, but their teammates started a majority of the contests in previous years.
Duke Johnson was the obvious star of Miami’s six new starters, as he had a career-best game. However, not everyone's performance was worthy of a stellar grade.
The 'Canes will be looking for these guys to step up next week against the Florida Gators because Miami must play a phenomenal game as a team to beat Will Muschamp's 10th-ranked squad.
