Week 14 Scores Holy smokes fellas, just got done with a thriller that saw me throw two shoes at a wall, and peg dog tags on a doorknob with a golf ball (impressive accuracy, not kidding). When Miami visited NC State for their regular season finale, both stood at 8-3 and were looking for bowl game positioning. In a bit of oddness, there was wet snow falling the whole game in Raleigh. NC State led this one until 14 seconds remaining, when Miami's Sam Shields took a slant pattern to the end zone for his third TD on the day (199 yds, 3 TD), which gave Miami a 46-42 lead that they would eventually win by. This was yet another game without any defense. There were touchdowns of 54 (NCSU), 53 (MIA), 72 (NCSU), 56 (NCSU), 53 (NCSU), and 68 (MIA) yards in this game. Miami came back from 10 or more 4th quarter points TWICE in the quarter. They cut the NCSU lead to 3 after a TD and a 2-point conversion with 2:30 to play, but NC State scored on their next drive, making the lead 10 again. Miami answered with a Shields bomb. The onside kick was unsuccessful, but with timeouts remaining, Miami held the Wolfpack to punt. Miami got the ball back with 1:26 to play, no timeouts, and 74 yards between them and a win. The Miami kicker, Matt Bosher, has a solid leg, but a touchdown was the desired result. Here was how the winning drive went: - Harris to Shields for 15 yds - Harris incomplete, intended for Epps - Harris incomplete, intended for Farquhars - Harris to A. Johnson for 27 yds (1 min to go) - Cooper 8 yd rush - Cooper 1 yd rush - Cooper 3 yd rush (29 seconds to go) - Spiked ball - TD Harris to Shields for 19 yds (kick good!) So, with this intense win, Miami moves to 9-3 (6-2) for the season. A bowl game victory would be nice, but the 'Canes will certainly have to play better defense than they have in their past 3 games.
