[1]DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Freshman Duke Johnson rushed for season highs of 176 yards and three touchdowns, Stephen Morris had three passing scores and Miami held on to beat Duke 52-45 on Saturday and claim a share of the ACC’s Coastal Division title.

In a wild affair in which the teams combined for 1,229 total yards, Morris finished 15 of 25 for 369 yards for the Hurricanes (7-5, 5-3) — who never trailed but could never really breathe easy, either.

Sean Renfree threw for a career-high 432 yards and a career-high-tying four touchdowns in his final home game for Duke (6-6, 3-5), which trailed by 21 late. Brandon Connette’s second touchdown run of the day pulled the Blue Devils within seven points with 2:32 left.

After Ross Martin’s onside kick went out of bounds, Miami ran out the clock to seal its first share of a division title since joining the ACC in 2004.
