Miami Hurricanes QB Tyler Van Dyke put his name in the program’s record book during week 2 against #23 Texas A&M.

Van Dyke completed 21 of 30 passes and threw for 374 yards and five touchdowns in Miami’s 48-33 win over No. 23 Texas A&M. That performance allowed him to became the first Hurricanes quarterback to ever throw five scoring passes against a team ranked in the Associated Press Top 25.

The quarterback, who was pressed into duty in 2021 and went on to become ACC Rookie of the Year after former Miami quarterback D’Eriq King was hurt early that season, went through quite a few struggles in 2022.

He was hampered by a shoulder injury that sidelined him for multiple games and hurt his performance in other contests. Van Dyke finished the season completing 63.2 percent of his passes for 1,835 yards with 10 touchdowns and six interceptions.
