MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. — At halftime in South Florida, the North Carolina football team trails Miami, 30-6.
The Hurricanes (5-3, 2-2 ACC) have dominated the Tar Heels (4-4, 2-2) in nearly every phase of the game after two quarters of play.
After UNC ran just six plays on its first drive and punted, Miami put together a 13-play, 84-yard touchdown drive, clocking in at 7:10. The drive ended with a one-yard touchdown run by Miami junior running back Duke Johnson on 4th down and 1.
In the first half, Johnson carried the ball 17 times for 172 yards and two touchdowns, and is now second all-time in career rushing yards in Miami program history.
Johnson's 90-yard touchdown run with about three minutes left in the second quarter is the longest run the UNC defense has surrendered in program history. Johnson broke former Georgia Tech tailback Jonathan Dwyer's record-setting 85-yard run against the Tar Heels in 2008.
