Hurricanes: 2014 Results
Miami season preview coming soon.
Miami wins an ugly game against Clemson but sloppy offensive play will need to be addressed in upcoming weeks. The Cane offense was awful in this game. Quarterbacks Austin and Robinson couldn't hit water from a boat. The wide receivers didn't help matters, dropping passes and taking 4+ seconds to get off a bump. I'd like to say the running game was clicking but that too struggled in this game due to shaky offensive line play and computer AI that knew exactly what play I called every single time. All together Miami managed just 2 offensive touchdowns in this game and the final TD came after starting at the opponent's 12 yard line. Freshman kick returner Jones did get a kick return TD in the game to open the 2nd half.
On defense the Hurricanes were beaten by 2 long 70+ runs but held down camp the rest of the game. The Miami pass defense was the key in this game. They allowed just 2 completions in the game and Clemson had just 11 yards passing. The defense also racked up 8 sacks in the game and they forced 2 interceptions. The final interception was returned for a touchdown and that TD bumped the lead from 5 to 12 with under 2 minutes left in the game. Senior cornerback Thomas grabbed the other interception for Miami. As for the sacks, sophomore linebacker Matthews led the charge with 3 sacks in this game.
