Stephen Morris throws for 413 yards as Miami cruises past South Florida
MIAMI -- Stephen Morris threw for 413 yards and three scores, Herb Waters had an 87-yard touchdown catch for Miami's longest reception in more than five years and the Hurricanes rolled past South Florida 40-9 on Saturday.
Clive Walford (135), Waters (130) and Phillip Dorsett (12 catches, 111 yards) all topped the 100-yard receiving mark for Miami, and Duke Johnson rushed for 66 yards and another score for the Hurricanes (6-5).
Miami is now bowl-eligible, though the school will consider imposing a second straight postseason ban on itself because of the ongoing NCAA investigation into compliance practices.
A year ago, Miami announced its bowl-ban decision one day after winning its sixth game of the season -- also against South Florida.
Demetris Murray ran for 108 yards and Maikon Bonani kicked three field goals for the Bulls (3-7), who lost starting quarterback Bobby Eveld to a shoulder injury late in the first quarter.
