Golden Named CBS Sports ACC Coach of the Week
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- For his team's 41-32 victory over Boston College at Alumni Stadium, Al Golden has been named CBSSports.com's Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Week.
The Hurricanes, who found themselves trailing the Eagles 14-0 midway through the first, opened up a 41-9 scoring run with a one-yard touchdown plunge from sophomore running back Eduardo Clements. After an interception of Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig was returned for a touchdown by sophomore linebacker Denzel Perryman, ACC Rookie of the Week Duke Johnson sparked the Hurricanes with scoring runs of 54 and 56 yards in the game's middle stages. Freshman wide receiver Malcolm Lewis capped the Hurricanes' scoring efforts with an 18-yard touchdown grab from Stephen Morris with less than 10 minutes to play in the fourth quarter.
The 41 points scored by the Hurricanes against Boston College were the most by a Miami team against an FBS school in a season-opener since scoring 48 against Louisiana Tech in 2003.
