Miami Rallies Late To Knock Off No. 18 Florida State In Tallahassee

By  | 

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Ailing shoulder and all, Jacory Harris put on a show that Miami won't soon forget Monday night.

And the Hurricanes defense came up huge when it mattered most.

The sophomore quarterback threw for 386 yards - including a 40-yard pass over double coverage to Travis Benjamin, setting up Graig Cooper's 3-yard touchdown run with 1:53 left - and led the Hurricanes past No. 18 Florida State 38-34 in a wild, back-and-forth game on Monday night.

Florida State got to the Miami 2 with 14 seconds left. But Christian Ponder threw three straight incompletions, the last coming on a ball that Jarmon Fortson nearly caught in the end zone on the game's final play, and Miami escaped.
