N.C. State vs. Miami 2012 blog reaction: Morris to Dorsett lifts 'Canes past Wolfpack

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Quarterback Stephen Morris connected with Phillip Dorsett for a 62-yard touchdown pass to catapult Miami to a 44-37 victory over N.C. State and 4-1 start to the year.

Miami's final offensive play was a fitting end to a remarkable passing day for Stephen Morris as he passed for a team-record 566 yards and five touchdowns, including a 62-yard touchdown pass to Phillip Dorsett to put the Hurricanes up for good, 44-37, with 19 seconds left in the game. Dorsett had seven catches for 191 yards and two touchdowns for the game.

Jerry Steinberg of The Seventh Floor blog described the play:

If Sun Life Stadium had a roof, the fans that showed up today surely would have torn it off. And just like that, in the most improbable of circumstances, Miami is 4-1.

Steinberg describes the Hurricanes as "capricious" and "defying logic" and compared Saturday's game to the wildest Arena Football League contests.

Miami is now 4-1 and 3-0 in the ACC will travel to Chicago next week to take on undefeated Notre Dame at Soldier Field. Notre Dame is coming off a bye after defeating Michigan State and Michigan in back-to-back weeks.
