Miami tops Virginia Tech, 30-20
Brenden Motley threw two picks, and Michael Brewer, in his first action since going down in the season opener, also threw an interception, while Miami sophomore QB Brad Kaaya had a clean, efficient game for the ‘Canes, going 19-for-30 passing for 296 yards and two touchdowns.
The second Kaaya TD pass was a backbreaker, coming at the end of a nine-play, 75-yard drive that saw Miami eat 4:36 off the clock before Kaaya connected with Rashawn Scott on a 2-yard touchdown pass that pushed the lead to 10 with 2:44 to play.
UM (4-2, 1-1 ACC) led 20-13 at the half after the other Kaaya-to-Scott TD pass with four seconds left in the second quarter.
A Michael Badgley 21-yard field goal pushed the Hurricanes’ lead to 23-13 with 58 seconds left in the third quarter.
Brewer connected with Isaiah Ford on a 33-yard TD pass with 7:20 to go in the fourth to get Virginia Tech (3-4, 1-2 ACC) within 23-20.
