PITTSBURGH (AP) Miami spent the better part of 13 months putting together the nation's longest winning streak behind a series of comebacks that returned the swagger to "The U" in all of its "Turnover Chain" glory.
Sluggish throughout the first half against Pittsburgh on Friday, the Hurricanes figured they'd come out for the third quarter, hit the gas and survive just the way they've done time and again during their rebirth under second-year coach Mark Richt.
MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) Shane Morris threw his third touchdown pass on a daring fourth down play with 1:32 to play, Josh Cox intercepted a pass at the goal line with 22 seconds left and Central Michigan beat Northern Illinois 31-24 on Friday.
Facing a fourth-and-4 from the NIU 29 going into the wind, Morris found Corey Willis behind the defense on the left side. It was the 23rd career TD catch for Willis, breaking a tie with Antonio Brown.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) It's been 24 years since Penn State played a football game at the University of Maryland, yet quarterback Trace McSorley will feel right at home Saturday when the 12th-ranked Nittany Lions wrap up the regular season against the Terrapins.
McSorley starred for Briar Woods High School in Ashburn, Virginia, before heading north to Penn State.
