Canes linebacker Michael Pinckney talks "turnover chain" and UM's win over Duke on Sept. 29, 2017.

Big defense limited previously unbeaten unbeaten Duke to a pair of field goals as the 14th-ranked Canes shot to 3-0 overall and win their ACC opener, 31-6. Offensively Malik Rosier started strong and did enough, with TD passes of 27 yards to Braxton Berrios and 49 to Ahmmon Richards in his season debut, on a night when Duke held running back Mark Walton and the Miami ground game mostly in check until Travis Homer's late 40-yard scoring jaunt. This was a slow-building domination and an impressive one, on the road, against a quality opponent UM had been favored to beat by only 6 1/2 points. The Canes will be inching closer to the Top 10 in the polls now. Next stop: Tallahassee. So how satisfied should a Hurricanes fan be right now?

UM senior receiver Braxton Berrios talks about coming back home to North Carolina with a strong performance against Duke.
