Van Dyke missed the Clemson game due to a leg injury. He was observed on campus with a bandage above his knee, limping. Van Dyke was considered a game-time decision Saturday and was officially ruled out before kickoff.
In Van Dyke’s absence, Miami turned to true freshman Emory Williams. In the 28-20 overtime win, Williams was 24-of-33 passing for 151 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. The touchdown throw was an 11-yarder to WR Colbie Young, cutting Clemson’s lead to 17-14 as the Hurricanes rallied from down 10 points.
Van Dyke, in his 4th season, is 129-of-183 passing (70.5% complete) for 1,721 yards with 16 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. He threw for 374 yards and 5 touchdowns in the Week 2 win over Texas A&M.
