Hurricane’s Hold Off The Tar Heels 27-23 To Stay Undefeated

Miami v North CarolinaCHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Dallas Crawford had a 3-yard touchdown with 16 seconds left to give No. 10 Miami a 27-23 victory over North Carolina on Thursday night.

Crawford’s short score ended a 90-yard drive by the Hurricanes (6-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) and capped his own big performance in the backfield after Miami lost top rusher Duke Johnson to an early injury. Crawford finished with 137 yards on 33 carries — surpassing his season totals in both categories — and two touchdowns to help the Hurricanes barely avoid a big upset.

The Hurricanes won despite Stephen Morris throwing four interceptions, as many as he had thrown all year, while the defense surrendered a season-high 500 yards against the Tar Heels’ no-huddle scheme.

But Miami got the stop it needed at the end, with Bryn Renner’s final heave into the end zone from the Miami 28 falling incomplete on the game’s final play.
