It was too little, too late for North Carolina, which dropped to 1-2 in the ACC race, with both losses coming to Coastal Division opponents.
Miami, meanwhile, has a new found relentlessness and earned its first ACC win because of it. It was a quiet game for running back Lamar Miller
, but the Canes won without him thanks to an impressive game by Jacory Harris
. Miami set the tone in the first half and never let down. Miami was outgained in first downs, total yards, rushing yards, and third-down efficiency, but the Canes won the turnover battle and the defense made the stops when it needed to most.
It was a much-needed win for the Hurricanes, and with Georgia Tech currently down 14-0 to Virginia in the first quarter, this ACC race is still open.
