North Carolina vs. Miami 2012 score update: Hurricanes cut lead to 18-14 with long drive

The Miami Hurricanes have made things interesting coming out of the locker room, cutting North Carolina's eight-point halftime lead to an 18-14 score.

The Hurricanes got back in the game on their second drive of the quarter as Stephen Morris capped off a 12-play, 94-yard drive with a five-yard touchdown on a quarterback keeper. Miami did attempt to go for two, setting up a trick play instantly after their score but the offense was flagged for a snapping the ball to quickly. After the uncommon delay of game penalty, the Hurricanes settled for a normal PAT instead.

North Carolina responded on their next drive, moving the ball 45 yards with relative ease before a drop from TE Eric Ebron killed the drive on third-and-seven. The Tar Heels settled for a field goal instead, with Casey Barth draining it from 48 yards away to make up for an earlier miss.

The Hurricanes had a scare in the final seconds of the quarter with Morris throwing an interception to S Tre Boston but the turnover was called back due to a pass interference call. A 14-yard Mike James scamper then put Miami on UNC's 35 for the final 15 minutes of action.
