The Hurricanes were just trying to rebound against the Duke Blue Devils, a week after Miami was embarrassed 58-0 by Clemson, costing Al Golden his job.

Interim coach Larry Scott led his team to Durham, to take on the 22nd ranked Blue Devils. His team fought well under backup quarterback Malik Rosier, but found themselves down 27-24, as Duke kicked-off with only six-seconds to go.

Then, this happened.

From Dallas Crawford to Corn Elder, Elder to Jaquan Johnson, Johnson to Mark Walton, Walton back to Johnson, Johnson to Tyre Brady, Brady back to Elder, Elder back to Crawford, Crawford back to Elder. A great block by David Njoku and others, and somehow, someway, Elder is in the end zone, Miami wins.

GO CANES!
