Rosier threw for 270 yards, including a 49-yard catch-and-run score byAhmmon Richards early in the fourth quarter.
Richards’ score broke it open, giving the visiting Hurricanes (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) a 24-6 lead with 11:02 left.
Mark Walton — averaging a conference-best 176 yards rushing through two games — managed only 51 yards in 17 carries against the nation’s No. 2-ranked run defense. But he added 79 yards receiving before leaving in the fourth quarter because of an injury.
