It wasn’t just about team superlatives this week. Jalen Rivers was named the ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week. The left guard for the Hurricanes was dominant against Bethune-Cookman. The former Oakleaf high school standout was the sole Miami Hurricane to achieve an ACC Player of the Week recognition.
Rivers on winning ACC Offensive Lineman of the week award was prideful when discussing the status of Tyler Van Dyke’s jersey. “We take a lot of pride in keeping our quarterbacks clean. It means a lot to us.” The Miami Hurricanes did not give up a single sack vs. the Wildcats.

The Miami Hurricanes offensive line was dominant in the run game as well. When you get over 300 yards in total rushing and add in seven rushing touchdowns the offensive line definitely stocked up.
