Miami is renown for the strength of the Hurricanes.
In this case, it’s the Tulsa Golden Hurricane.
The Hurricanes swamped Central Michigan in a 55-10 victory in the Miami Beach Bowl Monday, scoring 38 points in the second and third periods and coasting.
Senior quarterback Dan Evans led the way, throwing for 304 yards and five touchdowns in the victory. He got plenty of help, as running backs De’Angelo Brewer ran for 105 yards and James Flanders ran for 100. Receiver Josh Atkinson caught 12 passes for 131 yards. Receiver Keevan Lewis caught three scoring passes.
“We’ve had a really good season and this is a really good football team,” Tulsa coach Philip Montgomery said. “I don’t know if we’ve gotten the respect across the country that we deserve. We play with a chip on our shoulder. You saw that tonight.”
Central quarterback Cooper Rush threw three interceptions.
Tulsa finished its season 10-3. Central was 6-7.
