Trick play! Tyler Van Dyke hits Key'Shawn Smith for TD on flea flicker
Miami struggled in the first half against Southern Miss, but the Canes came out firing in the second half against the Golden Eagles.
On its second drive of the second half, Miami offensive coordinator Josh Gattis dialed up a flea flicker on the first play.
Southern Miss fell for the miss-direction, and quarterback Tyler Van Dyke hit Key’Shawn Smith for a wide-open 35-yard TD.
The score gave Miami a 24-7 advantage midway through the third quarter.

This was Miami’s third consecutive touchdown drive after falling behind 7-3 late in the first half.
The short field was set up by a tremendous punt return from cornerback Tyrique Stevenson. The Hurricanes have been great on special teams vs. the Golden Eagles today.
Miami is looking to start its season with a 2-0 record ahead of a trip to College Station in Week 3.
