They call him T-V-D.
He goes by the name of Tyler Van Dyke.
Van Dyke’s name is growing period.
Van Dyke was 25 of 33 for 325 yards and four touchdowns to carry the Miami Hurricanes past 18 N.C. State Wolfpack 31-30, ending a six-game losing streak against Power 5 opponents.
This surprising win over the Wolfpack is the first win over a Power 5 team since December of 2020.
Hurricanes get their first ACC conference win of the season.
Charleston Rambo was Van Dyke’s top target with nine receptions, 127 yards, and two touchdowns.
Wolfpack entered the game with the nation’s 11th ranked defense.
Van Dyke, who has improved with each start, became the seventh Miami quarterback in the last 30 seasons to have at least 300 yards and four touchdowns in a game. The only quarterback in that span to have more than one of those was Brad Kaaya; he accomplished that three times.
The future is promising with Van Dyke at quarterback. In front of the team, he was impressive that WORLDWIDEWEST named our Miami Hurricanes column after, The Perfect Storm, the 2001 Miami Hurricanes team.
Miami paid tribute to that 2001 national title team widely considered one of the best in college football history.
The beat goes on.
N.C. State will host Louisville on Oct. 30.
Miami will take their talents to visit Pittsburgh on Oct. 30.
