Miami overcomes slow start against Virginia to remain unbeaten

Miami overcomes slow start against Virginia to remain unbeaten

"It's wonderful, this train we're riding right now", linebacker Shaquille Quarterman said. "And in the second half, they adjusted to us a little bit more, and we just couldn't get things going as much as we'd like to".

However, a few questionable decisions by Cavaliers Coach Bronco Mendenhall and his staff, as well as a game-turning, pick-six by Benkert, paved the way for the opportunistic Hurricanes to ring up 30 unanswered points en route to a 44-28 victory to extend the nation's longest winning streak to 15 and remain in the thick of the College Football playoff race.

Offensive lineman KC McDermott had a front-row seat - from the bench with his fellow offensive linemen. "And if we forget that, then we are going to find ourselves in trouble".

Benkert and the offense would then answer by scoring right before the half on a 36-yard touchdown pass to Andre Levrone.

Rosier was 15 of 28 for 210 yards and was intercepted twice. Rosier and Travis Homer had touchdown runs in the final 4:03 to close it out for Miami. That's not the only reason they're 10-0, but it is a reason.

The Cavaliers are 6-4 and have lost three of their last four games.

That is how the game unfolded in the first half, and through the early portions of the third quarter.

Pregame concerns that the Hurricanes might struggle with complacency after consecutive statement victories over Virginia Tech and Notre Dame seemed to be on the money. Michel ran for 87 yards and three scores of his own.

Ohio State 52, IL 14: No. 8 Ohio State scored on its first six possessions - including J.T. Barrett's 100th career touchdown pass - as the Buckeyes routed IL and clinched the Big Ten East title.

No. 9 Notre Dame 24, Navy 17: Brandon Wimbush threw for 164 yards and two touchdowns, and ran for a score, as Notre Dame (9-2) rallied in the rain and wind to beat Navy.

KANSAS STATE 45, (10) OKLAHOMA STATE 40: Byron Pringle caught three touchdown passes and also returned a kickoff for another touchdown to help Kansas State (6-5, 4-4 Big 12) pull an upset over Oklahoma State (8-3, 5-3) at Stillwater, Oklahoma. "We just came out there the second half and dominated". Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph passed for 425 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score.

From there, Miami ended up with a 44-yard field goal from Michael Badgley and came up with multiple fourth-down stops on defense, bringing the crowd to its feet. All of those touchdown passes came outside the pocket, the most in a game by a Power 5 quarterback this season.

YALE 24, HARVARD 3: Kurt Rawlings threw for 177 yards and a touchdown to lead Yale (9-1, 6-1) over rival Harvard (5-5, 3-4) at New Haven, Connecticut, securing the Bulldogs' first outright Ivy League championship in 37 years.

Memphis 66, SMU 45: Darrell Henderson rushed for 147 yards, including two long touchdowns, and Riley Ferguson threw for 320 yards and two scores as No. 18 Memphis claimed the AAC West Division championship.
