        Rally in Raleigh: D’Eriq King shines as Hurricanes outlast N.C. State in 44-41 shootout

        RALEIGH, N.C. — Quarterback D’Eriq King accounted for 535 total yards and threw five touchdowns to keep the No. 11 Miami Hurricanes' hopes at a spot in the ACC Championship Game alive after they were in danger of a second conference defeat for much of Friday night.

        King’s 430 yards passing and 105 rushing made up for a Miami defense that had breakdown after breakdown in a 44-41 win over North Carolina State at Carter-Finley Stadium where UM had four new players unavailable among a list of 11 that included star junior tight end Brevin Jordan.

        The Hurricanes (6-1, 5-1 ACC) can still get a rematch with No. 1 Clemson, which handed them their lone defeat, if they win out and get some help, beginning with a preferable Tigers win over Notre Dame on Saturday. UM coach Manny Diaz gets his elusive first victory after a bye (previously 0-4) with the win over the Wolfpack (4-3, 4-3).

        “We knew that there would be adversity in the second half,” said Diaz, as the Hurricanes came back from down 10 in the fourth quarter, “but we knew that we would win the game if we stuck together. And that’s exactly what we did. We stuck together. We didn’t panic. Got some stops on defense and, offensively, we were just hard to stop all night.”

        King was 31 of 41, and his five touchdown passes went to four different receivers. Two of them went to Michael Harley, including the game-winner.

        “I was just super, super confident," said King, who also connected with Harley deep over the middle for 35 yards on second-and-18 from Miami’s own 8-yard line earlier on the winning drive. "Honestly, I had no doubt that we were going to win that game. I just wanted a chance at the end to do go down there and score.”

        Added Diaz: “What D’Eriq King did tonight was phenomenal… [He] was at his best when his best was needed.”

        Harley, a senior, led UM pass catchers with eight receptions for 153 yards. He broke free from a defender after making a short catch over the middle and took it in for the 54-yard winning score with 2:43 remaining.

        “The four years I’ve been here, we’ve had some really hard battles where we didn’t come out with the victory,” Harley said, “but this team’s very special. We fought all the way to the end, and it led up to me to put the dagger in their heart.”

        N.C. State quarterback Bailey Hockman, a backup elevated to starter due to Devin Leary’s broken leg, went 19 of 28 for 248 yards and two touchdowns. Solid much of the night, the Hurricanes finally got to him late as DJ Ivey intercepted a tipped ball after the King-to-Harley touchdown. King picked up a first down rushing to then seal it with kneel-downs.

        While the Miami defense struggled much of Friday night, it got the interception and forced two punts on N.C. State’s final three possessions while only surrendering 6 yards of offense in the fourth quarter.

        “You got to play the next play," said defensive end Jaelan Phillips, who had 10 tackles, 1 1/2 for loss, a sack and a pass deflection, "and just things happen when they’re supposed to happen, as long as you just give fanatical effort. Ball doesn’t lie.”

        With 4:45 left in the third quarter, Zonovan Knight returned a kickoff 100 yards for an N.C. State touchdown which appeared would be back breaking for the Hurricanes, putting them down, 38-31.

        The Wolfpack extended that lead to 41-31 on the opening play of the fourth quarter when kicker Christopher Dunn nailed a 54-yard field goal that was made tougher due to a false start when he lined up for the original 49-yard try.

        Two Jose Borregales field goals got Miami to within four, 41-37. The second one came after what could’ve been a tying touchdown. On fourth-and-goal at the 1-yard line, it appeared Cam’Ron Harris was going to score easily, but the officials stopped play to review King’s run on the previous play, which they did not overturn into a touchdown. Miami committed a false start and ultimately settled for the 22-yard field goal as Diaz showed faith in his defense. Harris went for 62 rushing yards on 15 attempts.

        The kickoff return for N.C. State followed King’s fourth touchdown pass, which went to Mark Pope in the back corner of the end zone on one of several impressive throws he made. Pope ended up with six receptions for 97 yards. Dee Wiggins had seven for 77, and tight end Will Mallory, again filling in for Jordan, had six for 78 — all with a touchdown.

        Miami started the second half with a 36-yard field goal from Borregales that tied it at 24, but N.C. State regained a touchdown lead when Knight punched in a 1-yard score to seal a nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive.

        N.C. State led 24-21 at halftime. With 2:49 left before half, Hockman hit tight end Cary Angeline in the middle of the end zone for a 9-yard touchdown. An impassioned speech from striker Gilbert Frierson sparked the team for the second half, King revealed postgame.

        “That’s why you come to the U,” Frierson said. “Games like this, moments like that. When your back’s against the wall, you got to go out there and be a dog.”

        After a back-and-forth first quarter where Miami had to come back to tie with each of its two touchdowns, the Hurricanes took their first lead, 21-14, early in the second quarter. King beautifully found Harley in the corner of the end zone for a 20-yard touchdown as Harley’s momentum comically carried him a couple of steps into an empty section of the stadium filled to 7 percent capacity on Friday amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

        N.C. State started the night off by going 89 yards in six plays as receiver Thayer Thomas threw back to Hockman, who went 31 yards for the score behind great blocking. Hockman hit Emeka Emezie for a big 33-yard gain on the previous play.

        Miami responded with a 75-yard drive to score on its opening possession. King found Mallory wide open off play action from 3 yards out. King also kept the ball on a zone read on fourth-and-1 from the UM 34-yard line, going 42 yards to extend the drive.

        The Wolfpack answered right back, helped by another breakdown in coverage when Angeline broke free for a 24-yard reception. Another 24-yard gain to Emezie followed before Hockman connected with Devin Carter for an 11-yard touchdown on third-and-6.

        The Hurricanes evened it back up at 14 as King hit Wiggins for a 39-yard touchdown deep down the sideline. It came after he threw a bit behind Pope, allowing a Wolfpack defensive back to deflect the pass, when he had him for a touchdown over the middle on the previous play.

        UM recovered an onside kick to retain possession after the two teams combined for 302 total yards over the four scoring drives, but the teams finally settled down, exchanging empty possessions and punts.

        Aside from Jordan, Miami was without redshirt sophomore left tackle John Campbell, freshman receiver Keyshawn Smith, redshirt sophomore offensive guard Ousman Traore and freshman tight end Dominic Mammarelli. Those were the new names added to the unavailability report as receivers Xavier Restrepo and Michael Redding III, linebacker Corey Flagg, quarterback Tyler Van Dyke and defensive lineman Elijah Roberts remained but safety Brian Balom was reactivated.
