After a lightning delay for the second straight week, the Hurricanes scored the final 24 points of the night in a 44-20 victory over FAU. The score was tied at 20 in the third period. The Owls were treating the game as if it was a huge event, and Miami’s players seemed to be looking ahead.
Quarterback Brad Kaaya hit 21 of 32 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown. He has now thrown for a score in every UM game. Running back Joe Yearby combined for 243 total yards. Receiver Herb Walters had five catches for 102 yards.
FAU lost quarterback Jacquez Johnson early in the game to an ankle sprain. The FAU backup quarterback is Jason Driskel, the younger brother of former Florida quarterback Jeff, who hit 11 of 15 passes for 155 yards.
Next week, the Hurricanes play the University of Nebraska at 3:30 p.m. in Miami.
