Boston, MA - Freshman Duke Johnson broke two long touchdown runs, rushing for 135 yards to lead Miami to a 41-32 victory over Boston College on Saturday.

Johnson scored from 54 and 56 yards out for the Hurricanes, and Stephen Morris threw for 207 yards and a touchdown in the season opener for both teams.

Chase Rettig completed 32 of 51 passes for 441 yards and two touchdowns for BC, which led 14-0 after its first two possessions. But Johnson's second score made it 31-23, and then the Eagles fumbled the ball away on consecutive drives to start the fourth quarter. That set up a field goal and touchdown to give Miami a 41-23 lead.

BC cut the deficit on Rettig's 17-yard touchdown pass to Tahj Kimble, but it wasn't enough.

Miami took an intentional safety with 4 seconds left rather than punt from deep in its own end zone.
