Miami’s defense shuts down Duke
Rosier accounts for three TDs for Hurricanes
DURHAM, N.C. — Malik Rosier threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score and No. 14 Miami’s defense shut down Duke in a 31-6 victory Friday night.
Rosier passed for 270 yards, including a 49yard games — managed only 51 yards on 17 carries against the nation’s No. 2-ranked run defense.
But he added 79 yards receiving before leaving in the fourth quarter with an injury.
Linebacker Michael Pinckney had 10 tackles, a fourth-down sack on Duke’s opening drive and a second-quarter interception to lead the effort that kept the Blue Devils (4-1, 1-1) out of the end zone.
Duke finished with 349 yards, but converted just 5 of 19 third downs.
