D’Eriq King brought some Lone Star State flair to the season’s first matchup between ranked teams on Saturday leading the Miami Hurricanes to a 47-34 road win at Louisville.
King, a former Manvel star, completed 18 of 30 passes for 325 yards and three touchdowns to help Miami (2-0) open Atlantic Coast Conference play with a win while Louisville (1-1) started league play with a loss.
King transferred to Miami after player in at the University of Houston. He threw for 10,000 yards and 3,000 rushing yards at Manvel and earned District 22-6A MVP honors as a senior.
Miami hosts rival Florida State at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday on ABC.
