Four members of the Miami Hurricanes’ football team received recognition by the ACC for their performances in a 48-33 win over Texas A&M. The Canes dominated the Aggies in Hard Rock Stadium thanks in part to big performances from many of their stars.

Tyler Van Dyke: ACC Quarterback of the Week

Miami QB Tyler Van Dyke had one of the top performances in all of college football on Saturday. The Canes’ signal caller was 21/30 for 374 yards and 5 touchdowns to lead an incredibly explosive offense. Miami’s offensive line provided Van Dyke with a clean pocket for most of the afternoon and he took full advantage. The junior QB made several extremely impressive throws down field and showed why many people had him as one of the top QB prospects in the country following the 2021 season.

Jacolby George: ACC Wide Receiver of the Week

Canes’ wide receiver Jacolby George played a huge role in Miami’s high powered passing attack against the Aggies. George finished the day with 5 catches for 94 yards and 3 huge touchdowns. The Texas A&M defensive backs struggled all game to stick with George, who found himself open behind the defense multiple times. George also showed impressive run after the catch ability on a game sealing 64-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter. After battling injuries and off field issues last season, George looks poised to have a breakout year.

Anez Cooper: ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week

The Miami offensive line was arguably the biggest story line in Miami’s victory over the Aggies. All five of Miami’s starters played extremely well and did a great job of keeping Van Dyke upright, but Anez Cooper was also extremely productive in run blocking. Cooper shut down the Texas A&M interior pass rush and opened some big holes in the run game. Cooper played a major part in one of the game’s must underrated plays. Late in the first half Henry Parrish snuck through the line and was dragged by Cooper for 18 yards to help kickstart a hurry-up drive that resulted in a touchdown to give the Canes a lead heading into halftime. Cooper had a solid freshman season and looks like he has taken a big step forward early on in his sophomore campaign. 

Jaden Davis: ACC Defensive Back of the Week

In an offseason full of massive recruiting wins and big-timetransfers, the addition of Jaden Davis may have been the most slept on move of them all. The Oklahoma transfer was all over the field for Miami and came up with some very clutch plays. Davis played both in the nickel and outside and made an impact wherever he lined up. The St. Thomas Aquinas product had two tackles for loss, a pass deflection and forced a fumble that was recovered by Kam Kinchens. Davis showed that he is another extremely versatile and talented piece for defensive coordinator Lance Guidry to utilize.
