Late touchdown pass gives Miami yet another crazy win (VIDEO)

No one can ever claim that Miami football is boring.

For the second consecutive week, the Hurricanes gave up a lead only to fight their way back for a dramatic win.

This week's high drama came courtesy of a 62-yard touchdowns pass from quarterback Stephen Morris to receiver Phillip Dorsett with 19 seconds remaining to give the Hurricanes a 44-37 win over N.C. State.

With the clock ticking down, the score tied and Miami facing a 3rd-and-11, Morris darted around the pocket, avoided pressure and then heaved the ball toward the end zone. Dorsett caught the ball at the 8-yard line and then dragged an N.C. State defender into the end zone.
The touchdown pass was so unbelievable that even the three defenders supposedly covering Dorsett stared in awe of the ball as it floated over their heads.

Last week, Miami led Georgia Tech 19-0 before trailing 36-19 late in the third quarter. Morris threw the game-tying touchdown with 27 seconds remaining and the Hurricanes won on a run in overtime.
