The Hurricanes will see if freshman Duke Johnson has another breakout performance.

The Miami Hurricanes will attempt to start the season with a 2-0 record for the first time since 2009 when they travel to Bill Snyder country Saturday to take on No. 22 Kansas State.

It was a mixed bag for Miami in its 41-32 opening week win over Boston College. The offense performed at a high level against the Eagles behind freshman running back Duke Johnson, who had 135 yards and two touchdowns on just seven carries.

The defense, however, allowed 442 passing yards to the Eagles.

The Hurricanes will take on a Kansas State team that struggled early in its 51-9 win over Missouri State. Heading into the fourth quarter, the Wildcats held just a 16-9 lead.
