MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Tyler Van Dyke passed for 270 yards and three touchdowns in his first career start, and Miami tuned up for Atlantic Coast Conference play by racking up a school-record 739 yards of offense in an easy 69-0 win over Central Connecticut State.

A total of eight players had either a scoring run or catch for the Hurricanes, who scored touchdowns on their first seven possessions.

The 69 points was the fifth-most in school history, and the margin of victory was the third-largest behind only 77-0 and 77-7 wins over Savannah State in 2018 and 2013, respectively.

The Hurricanes improved to 2-2 on the young season, with wins over Central Connecticut and Appalachian State and losses to No. 1 Alabama and No. 20 Michigan State.
