CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Jacory Harris tied a career best with four touchdown passes – three to Leonard Hankerson – and No. 16 Miami opened Atlantic Coast Conference play with a 30-21 victory over Clemson on Saturday.

Harris had all four of his scoring throws in the opening half as the Hurricanes (3-1, 1-0 ACC) led 27-14. Then they called on their top-rated ACC defense to hang on.

Ahead 27-21, cornerback Brandon Harris stopped Andre Ellington on 4th-and-1 from Miami’s 20 with 8:20 to go that ended the Tigers comeback.

Harris followed with a mistake-free, 62-yard drive that ended with Matt Bosher’s clinching 29-yard field goal.

Clemson (2-2, 0-1) came into the game leading the ACC in fewest turnovers with just two its first three games. But Miami forced the Tigers into three fumbles and three interceptions.
