The Miami Hurricanes looked unstoppable in the first half of their game against the North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday afternoon as quarterback Jacory Harris led his team to a 27-10 lead heading into halftime. Things changed in the second half, however, as the hosting Heels ended the game on a 21-3 run and even had a chance to win by recovering an onside kick before time ran out with the final score reading 30-24 in favor of the visiting Hurricanes.
The quarterback play, at least statistically, was great in the game as Harris and his counterpart Bryn Renner both combined for five touchdowns. Harris threw for three touchdowns and 267 yards while Renner completed 29 of his 37 passing attempts for 288 yards and two touchdowns of his own.
The biggest problem with the Hurricanes was the inability to run the ball -- and, in part, run out the clock -- as the team combined for 44 yards on 27 attempts. North Carolina's running game looked quite a bit better by comparison as starting running back Giovani Bernard rushed 27 times for 110 yards and a touchdown.
It's unfortunate the Tar Heels were unable to complete the second half comeback, but they at least made it interesting.
