Miami won the Russell Athletic Bowl against West Virginia as they clocked up a 31-14 scoreline in front of 48,625 fans at Camping World Stadium tonight. Miami finished 2016 with a 9-4 record. WVU finished 10-3.
Key man was the Hurricanes junior quarterback Brad Kaaya (pictured above right) who turned in an impressive performance and now has to decide whether to turn pro with eligibility remaining or return for a final season in Coral Gables.
After a slow first 15 minutes which saw them trail 7-0, Miami came alive with an offensive explosion in the second quarter, powered by Kaaya. He threw three touchdowns in the frame: a 51-yarder to Ahmon Richards, a 3-yarder to Malcolm Lewis, and a superb, looping 26-yarder to Braxton Berrios just before halftime, to make the score 21-7. He finished the evening with four touchdowns, no interceptions, and 282 yards on 24-of-34 passing.
Kaaya threw another touchdown in the third quarter, a 23-yarder to David Njoku. The Canes held a three-score lead heading into the final 15 minutes and didn’t come close to blowing it. It was a solid effort in their home state, a fine win to end Mark Richt’s first year as the boss in Coral Gables.
