Kaaya throws for 296 yards help Miami beat Va. Tech 30-20


MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Brad Kaaya threw for 296 yards and led a 75-yard touchdown drive in the final minutes to help the Miami Hurricanes beat Virginia Tech 30-20 Saturday.

Kaaya also took the Hurricanes 89 yards in the final 42 seconds of the first half for the touchdown that put them ahead to stay.

Miami’s defense, which has struggled for much of the season, forced four turnovers and had three sacks. The Hurricanes allowed 160 yards rushing, but Tech’s Brenden Motley threw two interceptions and lost a fumble, which led to 10 Miami points.

The Hurricanes (4-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) bounced back from a loss a week earlier at Florida State and beat Virginia Tech (3-4, 1-2) for the second year in a row.
