The most dominant win in Miami Hurricanes history was against Fordham in 1954. The final score was 75-7, which was the most points scored by the Canes and the largest margin of victory. Key word: WAS. Saturday night, the 2013 Hurricanes slaughtered the Savannah State Tigers 77-7, setting a new record in both categories. The Golden Era continues. However, despite this incredible feat, it comes at the cost of the starting quarterback. Stephen Morris hurt his ankle in the first quarter after he led the team to a quick 14-0 lead. He didn’t return to the game. Coach Al Golden confirmed the x-rays were negative, but this was his biggest nightmare. That’s why he went through the first and second teams so quickly. “It looks like he’ll be fine,” he said. Morris also twisted his ankle last year against North Carolina, but surprised everyone when he recovered in one week to start against Florida State. Miami (3-0) played three quarterbacks. Ryan Williams led going 11-of-13 for 176 yards and two touchdowns. Redshirt freshman Gray Crow played the most minutes and went a perfect 6-of-6 for 55 yards and a score. Allen Hurns had two receptions for 100 yards and one touchdown. Stacy Coley and tight end Beau Sandland each had a touchdown as well. Duke Johnson set the tone of the game with a 95-yard return on the opening kickoff, matching his career high. The next play, Dallas Crawford tiptoed into the end zone. Johnson had a quiet night finishing with eight carries for 59 yards. He appeared to be shaken up at the end of the first quarter, but Golden said he is fine. Gus Edwards led the team with 12 carries for 113 yards and three touchdowns. “Gus is getting better every week. He’s a big back. I thought he ran hard,” reflected Golden. “I was very excited,” said Edwards, a true freshman. Crawford finished the night with two touchdowns and Eduardo Clements had 11 carries for 75 yards. The defense continued to impress. The Tigers were 1-of-13 on third down conversions and only 183 yards of total offense. Because of the domination, many young players got quality playing time. Freshman Al-Quadin Muhammad had two sacks. “It was nice seeing Quan step up and contribute,” said fellow freshman Alex Figueroa. “I’m proud of him.” Figueroa finished with two tackles and a sack of his own. Jermaine Grace, another true freshman, led the team with five tackles. Deon Bush saw his first action this season after recovering from a sports hernia. Savannah State (1-3) was silent until two minutes left in the third quarter when DeQuan Daniels broke away for a 75 yard touchdown. Otherwise, Miami had four interceptions that further twisted the dagger. The head coaches agreed on a shortened 12-minute fourth quarter. This is the first time the Hurricanes have started 3-0 since 2004, their first year in the Atlantic Coast Conference. That year, they went 9-3 and beat Florida in the Peach Bowl. Miami plays next in its first road game of the season, kickoff set for noon on Saturday at against USF.
