MIAMI, FLORIDA – The defending ACC Coastal champion Miami Hurricanes opened their 2018 conference schedule with a dominant victory over North Carolina, 47-10.

Over 60,000 fans packed Hard Rock Stadium to witness No. 16 Miami (4-1, 1-0 ACC) thrash the visiting Tar Heels (1-3, 1-1 ACC) on Thursday night. The Hurricanes racked up 354 yards of total offense while running just 46 plays and the defense tallied 14 tackles for loss, forced a school record-tying six turnovers and scored three times in a commanding win over their division rival.

“Overall, just a great win,” Miami head coach Mark Richt said.

“1-0 in conference play. That’s what we wanted to be. Now we have a little bit of rest, a little more rest than usual for next one against Florida State. We’re looking forward to that.”

North Carolina was the last team to beat the Hurricanes at home, but the win Thursday night was Miami’s 12th straight regular season home win dating back to October 15, 2016 — the longest such streak for the Canes since winning 26 straight from 1999 through 2003.
