Stephen Morris injured in Miami Hurricanes’ loss to North Carolina
With 8:26 left in the game and the University of Miami down 18-14 to North Carolina, Hurricanes quarterback Stephen Morris lay on his stomach Saturday on the Sun Life Stadium turf, his left ankle injured without even getting hit.
Backup Ryan Williams came in, with the Canes driving and hoping for another late-game miracle, but UM could only get as far as the UNC 26, as Williams’ fourth-down pass to Phillip Dorsett fell incomplete.
The Tar Heels took over with 5:45 to play, then kept possession until they punted.
Miami had hope again.
The Canes got the ball back with 1:47 left – first-and-10 from their 17-yard line.
They got as far as the UNC 24-yard line, but the Tar Heels took over with 23 seconds left, preserving the 18-14 victory.
