Miami quarterback Tyler Van Dyke didn’t get a shot at the Clemson Tigers last year in Death Valley, something that stuck with him during the offseason.
He was hurt and didn’t get to help his team in Clemson’s 40-10 blowout of the Hurricanes.
History could repeat itself today at 8 p.m. in Miami. The Hurricanes’ starting signal-caller will be a game-time decision against the Tigers, according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel.
The report said that Van Dyke was limited in practice this week and will warm up to see if he can go or not.
Earlier this week, Van Dyke had a right leg injury he suffered against UNC last week, according to the Miami Herald. The fourth-year junior is also dealing with a hand issue that he sustained in fall camp.
Miami head coach Mario Cristobal wouldn’t detail Van Dyke’s ailments.
“I keep telling you I don’t talk about injuries,” Cristobal said earlier in the week. “I just told one of our guys that he’s ready to go.
Van Dyke has led the top offense in the ACC with a 70.5 completion percentage and 1,721 passing yards along with his 16 touchdowns to six interceptions.
Freshman Emory Williams is the only other quarterback to attempt a pass this season for the Hurricanes. Williams is 12-of-15 passing for 144 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in three games.
Coming off an open date, the Tigers are expected to be fully healthy, other than players out of the season, for today’s game.
