MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Stephen Morris threw for three touchdowns, Duke Johnson rushed for 184 yards and No. 14 Miami remained unbeaten after shaking off a problematic opening quarter to beat Georgia Tech 45-30 on Saturday.
Phillip Dorsett, Clive Walford and Allen Hurns caught scoring passes for Miami (5-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), which scored 21 points in the final 7:15.
Dallas Crawford ran for two scores in the fourth quarter, and Ladarius Gunter added a 30-yard interception return for another touchdown with 1:08 left.
David Sims had two rushing touchdowns for Georgia Tech (3-2, 2-2), which wasted a 17-point lead against Miami last season and blew another double-digit advantage Saturday — plus missed a fourth-quarter extra point that would have tied the game. The Yellow Jackets led 17-7 after controlling the first quarter, then wound up losing to Miami for the fifth straight time.
It’s Miami’s best start since opening 6-0 in 2004.
