Morris’ Huge Day Lifts Miami Past NC State, 44-37
MIAMI (AP) — Stephen Morris threw for a school- and Atlantic Coast Conference-record 566 yards and five touchdowns, the last of those a 62-yard strike to Phillip Dorsett with 19 seconds left, and Miami beat North Carolina State 44-37 Saturday for the Hurricanes’ first three-game winning streak since 2009.
Dorsett caught seven passes for 191 yards and two scores for Miami (4-1, 3-0). Rashawn Scott had six catches for 180 yards and two more touchdowns for the Hurricanes, who meet unbeaten Notre Dame in Chicago next weekend.
Morris was 26-of-49 passing for Miami, which finished with 652 yards of offense and survived despite wasting a 10-point fourth-quarter lead.
Mike Glennon completed 24 of 42 passes for 440 yards and four touchdowns for N.C. State (3-2, 0-1), but his interception with 48 seconds left set up Miami’s winning score.
Three plays later, Morris scrambled, bought some time and found Dorsett for the game-winner.
