North Carolina holds on to beat Miami 18-14
NORTH CAROLINA 18, MIAMI FL 14

MIAMI (AP) -- Giovani Bernard ran for 177 yards and two
touchdowns and North Carolina survived a slew of penalties to
beat Miami 18-14 Saturday, handing the Hurricanes their first
Atlantic Coast Conference loss.



Bernard scored on runs of 10 and 17 yards for the Tar Heels
(5-2, 2-1). It was the fourth straight win for North Carolina,
which was penalized 15 times.



Mike James rushed 22 times for 96 yards, both career-bests, and
he and Stephen Morris each had touchdown runs for Miami (4-3,
3-1), which may have lost more than a game. Morris, Miami's
quarterback, was helped off the field with 8:26 remaining after
apparently hurting his left ankle. He had a large icepack
strapped to the ankle shortly afterward and did not return.



Backup Ryan Williams was called in and threw an incompletion on
fourth-and-6 from the North Carolina 26 with 5:45 left. North
Carolina took nearly four minutes off the clock before punting
to Miami with 1:47 left, then held on from there.



With Williams running the show - after Morris' ankle was wrapped
in a boot and he left the game - the Hurricanes got to the North
Carolina 29 with just under a minute left. But Miami gave up a
sack to North Carolina's Tommy Heffernan with 38 seconds left,
knocking the Hurricanes back to the 35.



Two plays later, Miami turned the ball over on downs - and now
four teams have one loss in the ACC Coastal race.



Morris finished 12 for 26 for 155 yards and two interceptions.
Williams was 9 for 13 passing for 80 yards for Miami, which was
outgained 486-415.



For Bernard, who played his high school football at nearby St.
Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, it was a long-awaited
homecoming - and he didn't disappoint.



His second touchdown came with 2:57 left in the first half, the
second in a pair of brilliant plays by the Tar Heels. Bernard
got loose to catch a 17-yard pass from Bryn Renner on
fourth-and-6 from the Miami 33, a play where the Hurricanes
nearly had a stop - and one that left defensive coordinator Mark
D'Onofrio punching the air in disappointment.



His mood soured even worse just seconds later when Bernard
quickly went in from 17 yards out, sending the Tar Heels into
the half with a 15-7 lead. North Carolina got a two-point
conversion after that score, catching the Miami defense
off-guard with a quick snap.



The first omen of trouble for Miami came on its first drive. The
Hurricanes kept the offense on the field for a fourth-and-1 at
the North Carolina 46, only to have left tackle Malcolm Bunche
jump offsides. And on Miami's next possession, a pass by Morris
bounced off James' hand, caromed into the air and was picked off
at the North Carolina 20 by Shakeel Reshad.



North Carolina cashed in only one of those mistakes - Bernard
went in from 10 yards out to cap the opening Tar Heels' drive: a
seven-play, 61-yard waltz with nary any resistance from the
Hurricanes.



It stayed 7-0 until the midpoint of the second quarter, though
easily could have been much worse. Renner was picked off by
Miami's Eddie Johnson near the goal line on one possession, and
Casey Barth missed a 33-yard field goal into a swirling wind
with 10:53 left in the half. A roughing-the-kicker penalty on a
Miami punt gave the Hurricanes a break, and James plowed in from
a yard out to tie the game at 7-all with 5:21 remaining.



Morris scored from 5 yards out with 5:06 left in the third to
end a 12-play, 94-yard drive and get the Hurricanes within 15-14
- a sequence where Miami apparently wanted to try going for a
two-point conversion as well. But officials flagged the
Hurricanes for snapping the ball too quickly, and Miami settled
for just an extra point.
