Miami downs Virginia in 4 OTs in ugliest of football games

A win is a win but there probably won’t be an uglier one — unless it involves Iowa — than Miami’s 14-12 ACC victory Saturday over Virginia.

The Hurricanes improved to 4-4 and 2-2 in conference play and the Cavaliers dropped to 3-5 and 1-4 after 4 overtimes.

Don’t be fooled by the Hurricanes’ total: Neither team found the end zone.

Both teams were perfect in one respect; they each attempted 4 field goals and connected on all of them.

Andres Borregales of Miami prolonged the game with a field goal to tie it at 6 as time expired.

The teams combined for 14 punts. Five of the eight boots by Lou Hedley of Miami left the Cavs inside their 20.

There were 8 sacks and 16 tackles for loss, including 11 by the Hurricanes.

Miami ran 70 plays, rushes and passes, and gained 272 yards, less than four yards per attempt.
