Fourth quarter in the Orange Bowl, and the #1 Canes are trailing the Seminoles 27-21, with just under 6 minutes to go in the game. Senior quarterback Ken Dorsey had led a scoring drive in the previous offensive drive for Miami, and now he had the ball in his hands again with a chance to take the lead.
Taking over at the 21-yard line, Dorsey and Hurricanes opted for a simple screen pass to star running back Willis McGahee.

Using his blazing 4.3 speed, along with perfect execution from the rest of the offense, McGahee broke free and went 68 yards, all the way down to the 11-yard line of FSU. On the very next play, Jason Geathers took the Dorsey handoff into the end zone. Miami won, 28-27.
