Williams finished 23 of 35 for a school-record 494 yards and four touchdowns against the Blue Devils.
The Hurricanes secured their bowl game eligibility be defeating Virginia 27–21 last week. Quarterback Brad Kaaya returned from missing one-game due to a concussion, and passed for 286 yards and two touchdowns. Miami is now off to a 2–0 start under interim head coach Larry Scott.
