PITTSBURGH — Miami freshman Tyler Van Dyke threw for 428 yards and three touchdowns as the Hurricanes beat No. 17 Pittsburgh 38-34.

Van Dyke outdueled Pitt star Kenny Pickett.

Pickett threw for a school-record 519 yards and four touchdowns but also threw two interceptions. His second pick ended a potential go-ahead drive in the fourth quarter.

Miami improved to 4-4 overall and 2-2 in the ACC with the win. Pitt dropped to 6-2 and 3-1.
