DURHAM -- As Duke prepares for the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve against Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies, the Blue Devil Network is taking a look back at the best plays from Duke's historic 2013 football season.

Each day leading up to the game, check back with GoDuke.com for another one of the moments that helped Duke to the first 10-win season in program history, and the school's first ACC Coastal Division championship.

Play number five features sophomore runningback Shaquille Powell and Duke's historic rushing effort against Miami. Positioned on Miami's 33-yard line and facing 4th-and-1 late in the fourth quarter, Powell sprinted up the middle for a touchdown that broke the backs of the Miami Hurricanes and propelled Duke to a 48-30 win.

Duke would go on to finish the game with 358 yards rushing, the most by a David Cutcliffe-coached team. The win was Duke's second of the 2013 campaign against a ranked opponent, the first time Duke had beaten multiple top-25 squads since 1971. The victory also pushed Duke to the eight-win mark, the first time the program achieved that status since 1994.
