The Miami Hurricanes are still in some real trouble on the road against the North Carolina Tar Heels. They still trail in the game in the second half by a score of 20-13, and are in danger of eating an upset.
One of the more notable statistics so far is the fact that the high-powered ‘Canes offense has yet to reach the end zone tonight. The North Carolina defense has more than done their part in stopping Miami from creating much offensively.
But, they did get to the end zone on special teams.
Early on in the second quarter of tonight’s game, down 7-6, Miami blocked a 47-yard field goal attempt by the Tar Heels. It was a blocked kick that would be picked up by Miami’s LaDarius Gunter and returned 67 yards the other way to give the Hurricanes a 13-7 lead at the time.
That was indeed a nice special teams play by the tenth-ranked team in the land. Although, they better realize that they can’t live off of those, especially the rest of the way tonight, or that number ten ranking will disappear as fast as it came back.
