1 Senior QB Stephen Morris is the only QB in Miami history to throw multiple 80-yard completions in ACC play. Morris threw TD passes of 84 and 81 yards against Virginia Tech.

2 If P Pat O’Donnell met the NCAA minimum of 3.6 punts per game, his 47.8 yards-per-punt would rank second in FBS.

3 Junior LB Denzel Perryman has 78 tackles, including 51 solo stops.

4 Miami has 21 takeaways in 2013, one shy of matching its 2012 total (22).

5 Sophomore RB Duke Johnson will miss the rest of the season (fractured ankle).

· Despite both passes coming in a loss to Virginia Tech, Miami QB Stephen Morris had the two longest passes of his career against ACC opponents, with an 81-yarder to Stacy Coley followed by an 84-yarder to Allen Hurns.

· Morris became the first quarterback from an FBS school with two completions of 80 yards or more in the same game since Arkansas’s Ryan Mallett did it against LSU in 2010.

· He’s also the first ACC quarterback since at least 1995 to have two completions of 80 yards in the same game. And he now has three of the five longest completions by any Miami quarterback in an ACC game.
