No. 16 Miami beat Bethune-Cookman 70-13 in Cristobal debut

MIAMI GARDENS, Florida (AP) – Mario Cristobal passed through smoke next to the Miami Hurricanes as they entered the field, grabbed his headphones and hugged someone on the sidelines.

It was the first of many celebratory moments in Cristobal’s first game as Miami coach.

Henry Parrish rushed for 108 yards and three touchdowns, Tyler Van Dyck slipped for two more, and No. 16 Miami started his season with a 70-13 win over Bethune-Cookman on Saturday. Miami sprinted to seven touchdowns a day, accumulating 582 yards of attack and turning three quick touchdowns into touchdowns.

Cristobal said: “The goal was to be 1-0 up by 7:15 tonight. And it came through… We did what we had to do.”

Thaddeus Franklin grabbed two goals, while Devon Berry and Terrell Walden also ran second to land for the Hurricanes (1-0).

Gilbert Frisson got an interception back for a score, while Xavier Restrepo and Michael Redding III got TD passes from Van Dyke – who completed 13 of 16 passes for 193 yards. Jake Garcia completed all eight of his Hurricane passes with relief.
