Miami Hurricanes News
9-16-14: The Miami Hurricanes hosted the Arkansas State Red Wolves this week at home in Sun Life Stadium in Miami as the Hurricanes look for their second straight win. Miami’s quarterback Brad Kaaya had his way with the Arkansas State secondary as he threw for 341 yards with four touchdowns and one interception on the day. The Miami offensive attack was pretty one dimensional on the game as Kaaya’s 341 yard day accounted for most of the Hurricanes 486 yards of total offense. The biggest difference in the game was Arkansas State’s inability to convert on third downs as the team was 9-21 on the day resulting in six punts on the day. Luke Ferguson, the Red Wolves kicker, didn’t help the Arkansas State cause missing two field goals and an extra point attempt in the game leaving seven potential points on the field. Miami had the game in hand heading into the fourth quarter as they led 41-14 and played a lot of their second and third string players on the depth chart. Next week the Hurricanes will travel to Nebraska to take on the Cornhuskers in Memorial Stadium so be sure to grab some tickets for that game. The game will be played at 8:00 pm ET and can be seen on ESPN2.
9-8-14: The Miami Hurricanes hosted the Florida A&M Rattlers at Sun Life Stadium this week as the Hurricanes look to rebound from a loss in their first game to Louisville. Miami did just that as they thumped the Rattlers in convincing fashion by the score of 41-7. The Hurricanes defense looked great as the only score that Florida A&M had was a recovered fumble in the endzone, the Rattlers offense never scored a point in this game. Florida A&M was forced to punt ten times in the game while Miami punted the ball just once in the contest which showed how dominating the offense was in this game. The Hurricanes offense had 416 total yards of offense while the Rattlers had just 114 yards. Miami threw everything they had at the Rattlers in this game with two quarterbacks in Brad Kaaya and Jake Heaps making completions, six different players ran the ball in the game, and six different receivers made catches in the game as the Hurricanes spread the ball around all evening long.
