In the end, Miami’s D’Eriq King was the king of Saturday night’s QB battle.

King completed 18 of 30 passes for 325 yards and three scores to lead the No. 17 Hurricanes to a 47-34 victory over Malik Cunningham and No. 18 Louisville.

Cunningham threw three TDs of his own on 26-of-36 passing for 307 yards.

For Miami, points were easy to come by thanks to King’s play and RB Cam’Ron Harris, who rushed for a total of 134 yards — including a 75-yard scoring scamper — on just nine carries.

Oh, and the turnover chain is back for Miami. This time, it’s properly sanitized.
