Miami 52, Virginia 17

Graig Cooper rushed for a career best 152 yards and a touchdown, Thearon Collier returned a 60-yard punt return for a touchdown as the Hurricanes defeated Virginia 52-17 yesterday at LandShark Stadium.

Collier’s punt return quite possibly was the play of the year for the ‘Canes.

All alone because the punt block rush was on, Collier avoided two Cavalier defenders and retreated several yards and evaded Virginia’s Perry Jones while making a wide arc toward the Hurricanes’ sideline. Two huge, crowd inspiring blocks, the last from Chavez Grant (shown above), finally sprung him free down the UM sideline to give the ‘Canes a 17-10 lead.
