Miami Blows Out Virginia 52-17

November 7, 2009

Miami outscored Virginia 28-0 in the second half on the way to a 52-17 win over the Cavaliers. Virginia has now lost three straight games.

The Cavaliers actually kept it close in the first half. After falling behind 24-10, Bill Schautz returned a blocked punt in the closing minutes of the first half to pull Virginia within seven points.

The second half is where it all came apart for the Cavaliers. The Hurricanes scored touchdowns on their first three drives of the second half, putting the game away for good when Graig Cooper scored on a three yard run around the right side. Cooper finished with 152 yards on 18 carries for the Canes, who are now 7-2 on the season (4-2 ACC). Quarterback Jacory Harris also had a productive day for Miami. He was 18-31 for 232 yards and two touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Virginia left much to be desired on offense. Quarterback Marc Verica was just 11-29 for 75 yards and an interception filling in for the injured Jameel Sewell. The Cavaliers were outgained 515-149 in total yards of offense.

The Cavaliers have now lost three straight to fall to 3-6 on the season (2-3 ACC). Virginia will try to bounce back next week with a home game against Boston College. Kickoff is set for 3:30 from Scott Stadium.
