GREENSBORO, N.C. – Miami Hurricanes senior WR Allen Hurns was named Atlantic Coast Conference Co-Receiver of the Week, the league announced Monday. It is Hurns’ first weekly honor of his career.

Hurns is the seventh different Miami Hurricane to win an ACC weekly honor this season, while the Hurricanes have racked up nine weekly honors total.

Hurns caught four passes for a career-high 142 yards and a touchdown in Miami’s 42-24 loss to Virginia Tech. Hurns’ 84-yard TD reception was the longest reception of his career and helped key his third 100-yard receiving game of the season. He leads the Hurricanes in receptions (37), receiving yards (732) and receiving touchdowns (5) this season. He is 268 yards shy of posting the fourth 1,000-yard receiving season in school history.

The 23rd-ranked Miami Hurricanes (7-2, 3-2 ACC) take their nine-game series winning streak to Durham, N.C., to face ACC Coastal Division rival Duke (7-2, 3-2 ACC). Saturday's game will kick at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
