    #16 Miami 30-0 Louisville

    Miami's defense celebrates their 1st quarter safety

    The #16 Miami Hurricanes opened their 2013 campaign in style, shutting out the Louisville Cardinals 30-0. Miami's defense held Louisville to just 90 yards of offense, 5 first downs, intercepting 4 passes, and recording 2 sacks, including a safety. It was a truly dominant performance and it allowed their offense to hold the ball for almost 21 minutes to Louisville's 7. Miami opened the scoring in the 1st quarter when AJ Highsmith hit Paul Johnson for an 11-yard touchdown. Less than a minute and a half later, it was 9-0 after Cardinal quarterback David McLaughlin was sacked in his own endzone attempting to setup a screen pass.

    Miami put the game away in the 2nd quarter when they got touchdowns from Highsmith on a scramble and freshman wideout Jake Tate on a 68-yard touchdown catch on a post route. Miami got interceptions from linebacker Marcus Swanson, safety Blake Gutierrez, and 2 from cornerback Eric Brown to shutdown the Louisville Cardinals. The offense spent the 2nd half playing keep away, holding the ball and gaining 138 yards between running backs Lamar Miller and J Rodgers. Miller was playing his first game since early last season when he suffered a season-ending knee injury. Miller celebrated his comeback with a 2-yard 4th quarter touchdown run. Miller bruised his sternum in the 1st quarter and sat out half of the game before he was able to return, but still gained 88 yards on 17 carries.

    #16 Miami 55-32 #7 Oklahoma

    Miami's AJ Highsmith celebrates 1 of his 4 touchdown passes

    The #16 Miami Hurricanes and their new coach came to Norman to face the #7 Oklahoma Sooners. Coach Alexander was squaring off against the team he'd built, having personally recruited almost the entire Sooner roster. Alexander left Norman last November after 4 years at the helm of Oklahoma and was returning for the 1st time. The Canes came through for Alexander winning a shootout 55-32. Oklahoma's high octane offense was tough to stop all day for Miami, but the defense managed to force 4 turnovers, including a fumble recovery for a touchdown by Olivier Vernon.

    Miami jumped on top of Oklahoma in the 1st quarter, racing out of the gate on 3 AJ Highsmith touchdown passes. With 2:28 left in the quarter, Miami opened the scoring on a 40-yard swing pass from Highsmith to backup running back Jason Rodgers. Oklahoma responded just :24 later when Drew Allen hit Player of the Game Jaz Reynolds for a 59-yard touchdown to tie the score, 7-7. Highsmith rounded out the quarter with a pair of touchdown passes, one to wideout Mike James on a slant and one to star freshman wideout Jake Tate on a post route that covered 26 yards.

    Miami scored 1st in the 2nd quarter, adding a 22-yard field goal from Chris Hammond to push the Hurricanes lead to 24-7, but once again, the defense was victimized by a big play from the Sooners when Jaz Reynolds caught another deep pass. He was tackled at the 6 yardline, but Darrius Carpenter scored on a run on the next play to make the score 24-14. On Miami's next possession, Highsmith made his only error of the day and turned the ball over deep in Oklahoma territory. The Canes defense would then make their biggest play of the day, when Luther Robinson hit Drew Allen as he threw and Olivier Vernon scooped the ball up off the ground it and rumbled to the end zone to put Miami up 31-14. Oklahoma was back within 10 just :27 later as Allen hooked up with K Smith for a 62-yard gain and Carpenter scored once again, from 9 yards out this time. Miami then held the ball for the rest of the half, with Hammond splitting the uprights from 23 yards to put Miami up 34-21 on the last play of the half.

    The 3rd quarter saw Oklahoma make it a 10-point game again putting 3 points on the board with a T Owens 25-yard field goal. Miami put the game away in the 4th, as Highsmith threw his 4th touchdown of the day, finding James once again. Then, after forcing their 4th turnover, Highsmith put Miami up by 24 keeping the ball and turning it upfield for a 10-yard touchdown on an option run. 1:01 later, it was a 16-point game after Allen carved up the Hurricane secondary again, hitting Reynolds for his 2nd touchdown of the game. After the 2-point conversion, Miami needed to recover the onside kick to secure victory, they did and Lamar Miller iced the game with a 17-yard touchdown run.
