Najeh Davenport, shown here with Edgerrin James during the 1999 season, is one of five Hurricanes running backs featured in the upcoming documentary, “A Tale of 5,” scheduled for release this fall.
On this date in 1998, Edgerrin James ran for a team record 299 yards to lead the Hurricanes to a 49-45 victory over the #3 ranked UCLA Bruins in front of 46,819 at the Orange Bowl. James’ 39 carries also tied a single game team record for rushing attempts set by Ottis Anderson against back in 1978.
Edgerrin James and Ottis Anderson were on hand to see Bennie Blades, Steve Walsh and Eddie Dunn inducted into the University of Miami Ring of Honor. James was inducted in 2008 and Anderson was inducted in 1999.
