CANES HOLD OFF NOLES 38-34

Bobby Bowden has spent a few years looking for a kid who can throw the football. Now he needs to find a couple who can catch it. FSU looked like they could pull away from upstart Miami in the third quarter, but the Canes hung around just long enough to win the game.

Ailing shoulder and all, Jacory Harris put on a show that Miami won't soon forget Monday night.

And the Hurricanes defense came up huge when it mattered most.

The sophomore quarterback threw for 386 yards - including a 40-yard pass over double coverage to Travis Benjamin, setting up Graig Cooper's 3-yard touchdown run with 1:53 left - and led the Hurricanes past No. 18 Florida State 38-34 in a wild, back-and-forth game on Monday night.

Florida State got to the Miami 2 with 14 seconds left. But Christian Ponder threw three straight incompletions, the last coming on a ball that Jarmon Fortson nearly caught in the end zone on the game's final play, and Miami escaped.

Harris completed 21 of 34 passes for two touchdowns and two interceptions.
