Virginia rallies from 10 down, stuns Miami with last-minute TD

Associated Press

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Michael Rocco threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Jake McGee with 6 seconds remaining Saturday, and Virginia rallied from a 10-point deficit to stun Miami 41-40.

Rocco threw four touchdown passes and Virginia (4-6, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) won its second in a row after a six-game losing streak. It was the Cavaliers' third straight win against the Hurricanes.

The victory kept the Cavaliers' slim bowl hopes alive. Virginia still has to beat North Carolina and Virginia Tech to become bowl eligible.

Miami (5-5, 4-3) lost despite three touchdown passes from Stephen Morris and a brilliant performance by Duke Johnson. The freshman ran for 150 yards, returned a kickoff for a touchdown and threw a TD pass. The victory also cost the Hurricanes control of the Coast Division title race.

But in the end, it was Miami's defense that let the Hurricanes down.

Research Notes

Miami's Duke Johnson is the third player since 2000 to pass for a touchdown and return a kickoff for a touchdown in the same game. San Jose State's Charles Pauley did so in 2002, and Toledo's Eric Page matched the feat in 2010.
