Mike Norvell comments on Miami QB situation ahead of rivalry game
Mike Norvell shared some brief thoughts about Miami’s quarterback situation ahead of Florida State’s meeting with the Canes on Tuesday.
Miami’s QB situation is somewhat uncertain given Tyler Van Dyke’s struggles in recent weeks. Van Dyke has thrown multiple interceptions in four straight games and his 10 picks leads the country over that span as well.
Mario Cristobal was non-committal when asked about who the starting QB would be earlier this week. On Tuesday, Norvell said the Noles will prepare for Tyler Van Dyke to get the start.
“Tyler is a really good quarterback. He’s got good ability. We’ll plan for him,” Norvell said. “Obviously, Emory played the Clemson game when he was not available … so we’ll see how it all plays out.”
Florida State does have some experience with facing Van Dyke. In 2021, Van Dyke threw for 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in a loss to the Noles. Last season, Van Dyke exited the FSU game with an injury after completing 4-of-8 passes. FSU went on to win 45-3.
Williams is a true freshman who made his first career start last month in a win over Clemson. If Miami decides to go in a different direction, it’s likely Williams would get the start under center.
Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon.
