CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Miami Hurricanes don’t have much time to bask in their big win over Texas A&M.

The Canes have a short turnaround for a Thursday night game with Bethune-Cookman at Hard Rock Stadium.

Quarterback Tyler Van Dyke said, “We have to practice like professionals. Like we said in the summer, ACC media day, all the media days that we had, we have to take it one day at a time, one practice at a time, one game at a time. So we’re move on from the A&M game. Obviously, big win for us and the program. We have Bethune-Cookman this week.”

Van Dyke talked about the challenge of a short week.

The Canes quarterback said, “We’re just going to play how we always play. Play like it’s our last game. Obviously, the week has changed with our practice schedule and the way our schedule works. We’re just going to go into this game, play as hard as we can, execute at a high level and play a great game altogether.”

Van Dyke had a great against the Aggies.

The quarterback threw for 374 yards and 5 touchdowns. He was named ACC Quarterback of the Week.

Van Dyke credited his offensive line saying, “Those guys played a hell of a game, kept me clean all night. Allowed me to be precise and accurate throwing the ball. I think all the credit goes to them with my stats.”
