Halftime: Miami 28, Duke 7
By Heather Dinich
Um, yeah, about Duke keeping things interesting ...
Miami has no reason to be afraid. Not after that half. Duke's defense has allowed about a whole game's worth of offense in the first half, as Miami has had four drives, four trips into the red zone, and quarterback Jacory Harris has thrown three touchdown passes already. Miami already has 300 total yards, and Harris has only thrown four incomplete passes.
This is the Duke team that held Virginia Tech scoreless in the second half last week?
This is the Miami team that lost at home to Virginia last week?
The Canes have already scored more points today than they did in four quarters last week (21). Miami has controlled the clock, and was 4-of-5 on third downs. Touchdown Tommy Streeter is at it again, and these Canes look unstoppable offensively right now. Even backup quarterback Stephen Morris is getting into the action, and fans could see more of him in the second half.
The question is which Duke defense will show up in the second half.
