nThe Miami Hurricanes took care of Bethune-Cookman Saturday night, 45-0, to notch their first victory of the 2015 campaign. But the win itself wasn't the biggest storyline from the game - that belonged to sophomore offensive lineman Hunter Knighton.

Knighton, who suffered a heat stroke back in February of 2014, lost 55 pounds and was in a coma for 12 days, played in his first contest for the Hurricanes. After the win, head coach Al Golden gave him the game ball, calling his return an "absolute miracle." Check it out:

Let's hope he stays healthy the rest of his collegiate career. Congrats to the young man.
