  With Miami running back Jaylan Knighton coming off injury, there's not a full read yet on who the Canes most trust at running back. But it likely will be - and should be - Henry Parrish, who has a 5.9 rushing average on 35 carries after averaging 5.1 in two years at Mississippi. Knighton averaged 3.4 yards on five carries in his first game back on Saturday, after averaging just 3.9 in his first two college seasons. Parrish, throughout his career, has been consistently better than Knighton in generating yards after contact. Parrish played 49 snaps, Thad Franklin 22 and Knighton 12. - Miami Herald

  Miami defensive lineman Akheem Mesidor looked good in practice Wednesday. Coaches expect him to be a full-speed player on Saturday. The sophomore, who spent the last two years with the West Virginia Mountaineers before transferring to Miami in April, logged four tackles, a sack and a pass defended in his debut for the Hurricanes in Week 1 before sitting out Week 2 with a lower-leg injury. Mesidor wore a boot on his right foot Saturday as he watched from the sideline at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. - Miami Herald

  Miami running back Jaylan Knighton, like star tackle Zion Nelson, has taken 100 percent of his reps in practice so far this week. It puts the running back on track to be a full contributor this weekend after he missed Game 1 with a soft-tissue injury and played just 12 snaps in Game 2. - Miami Herald

  TRACKING TOP DRAFT PROSPECTS - WEEK 2: 22. Tyler Van Dyke, rSo, QB, Miami, 6-3, 224, 1,...Van Dyke continued his prolific season in a 30-7 win over Southern Miss. He completed 20 of 29 passes for 252 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Previous week, No. 21: After stealing the job from injured D'Eriq King and then Jake Garcia last year, Van Dyke staked his claim with six straight games passing for at least 300 yards and three TDs. He began coach Mario Cristobal's era with another great performance in a resounding, 70-13, beat-down of obviously overmatched Bethune-Cookman. Van Dyke, a third-year sophomore, showed why he is probably headed to the NFL next season by completing 13 of 16 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns before yielding the field to Garcia midway through the third quarter. - Frank Cooney/NFL Draft Scout

  Miami defensive lineman Akheem Mesidor returned to practice on a limited basis Sunday. Coach Mario Cristobal said he expects Mesidor "be a full-speed player on Saturday" and perhaps be a full participant in practice as early as Tuesday. The sophomore sat out Saturday with a lower-leg injury and wore a boot on his right foot on the sideline at Hard Rock Stadium. - Miami Herald

In Miami's 70-13 mauling of Bethune Cookman, Stevenson was credited with two tackles, one assist and no interceptions. - Frank Cooney/NFL Draft Scout

  Key'Shawn Smith caught a 35-yard flea-flicker touchdown from Tyler Van Dyke, part of a third-quarter burst that lifted No. 15 Miami past Southern Miss 30-7 on Saturday. Smith's scoring grab - the only play of that drive - came 2:14 after Thaddius Franklin Jr.'s 7-yard touchdown run gave Miami (2-0) a bit of breathing room after the Hurricanes trailed for almost the entire second quarter. Henry Parrish had a 1-yard touchdown run late in the first half for the Hurricanes. Parrish rushed for 102 yards and Franklin added 66 more for Miami, which has started its season with two wins for only the seventh time in the past 18 seasons. Van Dyke completed 19 of 29 passes for 230 yards and the score, plus was intercepted once.

Jason Brownlee caught a 32-yard touchdown pass from Zach Wilcke for Southern Miss (0-2). That capped a six-play, 75-yard drive for the Golden Eagles -- but they managed only 122 yards on their next seven drives, five of which ended in punts, one with an interception in the end zone and the other with a fumble. Frank Gore Jr., the son of Miami Hall of Famer Frank Gore, was held largely in check by the Hurricanes' defense in his return to his hometown. Gore Jr. had seven carries for 10 yards, and two catches for 18 more yards. That's after he rushed for 178 yards last week in Southern Miss' opening-game loss to Liberty. Wilcke completed 16 of 27 passes for 207 yards for the Golden Eagles. Brownlee had five of those catches for 102 yards. Andy Borregales kicked three field goals for Miami. - Miami/AP College Football

  Henry Parrish rushed for 108 yards and three touchdowns, Tyler Van Dyke passed for two more scores and No. 16 Miami downed Bethune-Cookman 70-13 in Mario Cristobal's debut as coach of the Hurricanes on Saturday. Miami finished with seven rushing touchdowns. Thaddeus Franklin rushed for two scores, while Devon Perry and Terrell Walden II also ran for touchdowns for the Hurricanes (1-0). Gilbert Frierson had an interception return for a score, while Xavier Restrepo and Michael Redding III caught the TD passes from Van Dyke - who completed 13 of 16 passes for 193 yards. Jake Garcia completed all eight of his passes for the Hurricanes.

For Bethune-Cookman (0-1), Que'Shawn Byrd caught a 34-yard touchdown pass from Jalon Jones. It was Cristobal's 12th season-opener at Miami - he had five as a player, including his redshirt year, then three as a graduate assistant and three more as a full-fledged assistant. But this was the first, of what Miami expects to be many, with him in charge of the operation. There was much to like: Van Dyke's passes were crisp, Parrish stepped up to lead an injury-depleted running back corps, Frierson had the return touchdown, Key'Shawn Smith had three kickoff returns for 184 yards - barely stepping out 17 yards from the end zone on what would have been a return score - and the Hurricanes blocked a field goal. - Miami/AP College Football

Van Dyke started last season as a backup quarterback as all eyes focused on D'Eriq King. But after King got hurt early in the season, Van Dyke stepped in and started the final nine games - earning ACC Rookie of the Year honors after throwing for 2,931 yards, 25 touchdowns and six interceptions. He ended 2021 with six straight 300-yard passing games and at least three touchdown passes, the first Power 5 quarterback to do so in a single season since LSU's Joe Burrow in 2019. - ESPN.com

  The transfer portal has been kind to Miami Hurricanes coach Mario Cristobal and defensive line coaches Joe Salave'a and Rod Wright. Cristobal and his staff quickly bolstered the strength of their defensive line thanks to key transfers who will quickly play large roles in the rotation. The combination of newcomers and returnees should make UM's defensive line a formidable unit. "I could definitely say that I've never played on a D-line so deep before," Southern California transfer Jake Lichtenstein said. "It's so much competition and we're all really progressing and pushing each other to get better. It's a lot of fun when you have that many guys that can get the job done."

Lichtenstein is one of five defensive linemen who transferred to Miami this offseason, joining Mitchell Agude, Darrell Jackson, Akheem Mesidor and Antonio Moultrie. Lichtenstein, Jackson and Moultrie are primarily interior defensive linemen, while Agude and Mesidor will line up on the edge. A benefit for the Hurricanes will be the experience all of the linemen have. Agude (who transferred from UCLA), Lichtenstein (USC) and Moultrie (Alabama-Birmingham) are all sixth-year redshirt seniors. Mesidor is a third-year sophomore who received plenty of playing time at West Virginia, and Jackson played in 13 games for Maryland last season. "It's not like a bunch of dudes who never played came and transferred here," Lichtenstein said. "We all have experience." - Sun Sentinel
