  • Miami running back Dee Jay Dallas celebrates with wide receiver K.J. Osborn after scoring a touchdown during the first half of an NCAA college football game against Virginia Friday Oct. 11 2019 in Miami Gardens Fla

The victory by the Miami football team broke a four-game losing streak against Power Five teams that went back to the Hurricanes 35-3 loss to Wisconsin in the Pinstripe Bowl. They ended up settling for a field goal.

Who else could it have been other than Perry, who, making his first start since November 2018, saw his season go off the rails against UVA previous year in an ugly 2 INT performance where he was benched. Redemption never tasted so sweet for Perry, who finished 16 for 27 (59%) for 182 yards passing, 18 yards rushing, and 2 total TD's.

The game was not over after Perry's endzone scamper, though. Time and time again the Hurricanes defense was at its best against the Cavaliers while inside their own 20-yard line. The Hurricanes took the lead on an N'Kosi Perry to DeeJay Dallas 17 yard touchdown via a screen pass.

The Hurricanes were rolling early... until they weren't.

The first came at the end of a 43-yard drive in the first half that halted. The Hurricanes' next six drives went almost nowhere - 33 yards on 23 plays, all six possessions ending in punts. "Defense did its job holding the pillar, and we didn't do ours".

ESPN reported Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall said postgame the injury was to an ankle, but did not share additional details. Well, there seemed to be a different air about the Miami defense this week, as they played with a ton of aggression and passion to hold Perkins and his UVA offense out of the endzone on the night.

Striker Romeo Finley had eight total tackles, two solo, while Rousseau, who got his first start of the season, finished with seven total tackles, one sack and two tackles for losses.

"I came in a little nervous, but when you get on the field, you're thinking about the next play, so it all went away. That was our best defensive game by far".

To cap it all off, even K Turner Davidson got in on the action.

This was a huge blow for this Virginia team, and it'll look to get back on the ACC Coastal track next week when it travels back home for a division clash with Duke. The Hurricanes entered Friday night's game with one of the worst red-zone defenses in the country.

No, it wasn't flawless, but Diaz and his Hurricanes will certainly take this win and hope it springboards the team to bigger and better things in the future. He was 2-2 on extra points and added a 19-yard field in the fourth quarter. It was Miami's first 4th down stop of the season after previously allowing their opponents to go 7-7 on 4th down.
