With eight more tries to get two wins, the most likely chances are next weekend against Virginia, Oct. 21 versus Pittsburgh, on Nov. 11 at Army and in any of the last two games of the year (home on Nov. 18 against Georgia Tech or at Wake Forest on Nov. 25).
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: Don't consider Duke coach David Cutcliffe or Miami coach Mark Richt fans of a Friday night kickoff. Miami's defense has not lived up to the preseason hype. Duke also has a balanced attack as Daniel Jones has thrown for 904 yards and five touchdowns while rushing for 141 yards and three scores. Malik Rozier, who had been tremendous in the first quarter, was forced to take his eyes down and watch the rush.
The Hurricanes are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in September, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 conference games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
After the pick, Pinckney was quite excited to wear the coveted "Turnover Chain" - so much so that he received a penalty for taking off his helmet on the field as he prepared to receive the gaudy piece of jewelry. "You're not going to win many games with that, because you're getting behind in the chains".
"I credit that a lot to Michael Jackson, the cornerback", Pinckney said of the interception.
"That's got to be on me". "We weren't executing, we weren't able to stay on the field on some of those".
Linebacker Shaquille Quarterman added nine tackles, and Sheldrick Redwine had seven with about six minutes left in the game.

It was his fifth career 100-yard game.
Rosier was 8-of-8 passing in the first quarter.
"They sent an all-out blitz on that play", Richards said of the touchdown. "When I caught it, I was just thinking about scoring". Though he broke off a few nice runs throughout the evening, he finished with just 51 yards on the ground and was injured in the fourth quarter that saw him limp off with a leg injury. "That fourth down was monumental to the whole game".
The status of Walton's ankle is not yet known, but he was able to walk off the field by his own power.
After this Friday, Duke heads out of state for the first time on October 7 against Virginia before returning home on the 14th to take on Florida State, which is reeling from a season-ending injury to their starting quarterback and disruptions to their schedule from Hurricane Irma. He filled in that night for the injured Brad Kaaya. In 2016, he set Miami's freshman receiving record with 934 yards.
The 14th-ranked Miami Hurricanes are 2-0 entering their first conference game of the season against Duke.
"You want to prove that this is a different Duke team, that this Duke team can handle big challenges, that it can overcome adversity when things don't come our way", center Austin Davis said. Josh is now a member of the FWAA and USBWA. He ties former Cane Jon Peattie.
