Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd had 189 yards and three touchdowns on four catches in a 35-0 win over Nevada.
Recent Miami quarterbacks have tried in vain to live up to the "Quarterback U" nickname since Ken Dorsey left the program.
Brock Berlin, Kyle Wright, Kirby Freeman and Robert Marve had their moments, but ultimately all struggled.
Could a home-grown talent turn the tide? If sophomore Jacory Harris continues playing the way he did in Tallahassee on Monday night, that answer might be yes. A graduate of Miami Northwestern, Harris guided Miami to a 38-34 victory over Florida State. Harris was 21-of-34 for 386 yards with two touchdowns, two interceptions and a rushing touchdown to earn Rivals.com ACC and National Player of the Week honors.
Harris' finest moment came after a scare in the fourth quarter, when FSU freshman cornerback Greg Reid hit Harris' throwing arm. The errant pass fell into the hands of Florida State defensive end Markus White, who returned the interception for a touchdown that put the Seminoles up 31-24.
Harris returned to calmly lead Miami on two touchdown drives. He completed a 25-yard touchdown pass to Graig Cooper that tied the score and later tossed a 40-yard pass to Travis Benjamin to set up Cooper's winning 3-yard TD run.
