CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Miami quarterback Stephen Morris was
far from perfect in his first start with the Hurricanes.
He was, however, perfectly poised.
Not only did he lead a gamewinning -- and season-saving -- drive
in the final minute on Saturday, the true freshman taking over for
the concussed Jacory Harris, Morris convinced Miami he was ready to
lead a team that remains an unlikely candidate for the Atlantic
Coast Conference title.
Morris completed 18 of 30 passes for 286 yards with two
interceptions. The only throw Miami was talking about after the
26-20 win over Maryland was the 35-yarder to Leonard Hankerson that
put the Hurricanes ahead for good with 37 seconds remaining.
