DURHAM, N.C. — D'Eriq King threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score to help No. 9 Miami beat Duke 48-0 in the Hurricanes' return from a two-week pause amid coronavirus issues.

King hit Mike Harley for an 89-yard touchdown in the third quarter, and Cam'Ron Harris ran for a pair of touchdowns.

Miami also held Duke to 177 total yards and forced five turnovers.
