The Perfect Storm, Jarren Williams helps Hurricanes dominate Louisville Cardinals

There is a tropical storm growing in Coral Gables, Florida.

The Miami Hurricanes have won three games in a row, are bowl eligible, with a favorable schedule remaining.

Jarren Williams set a school record with six touchdown passes, wide receivers Dee Wiggins and Mike Harley each caught two of them in a 52-27 win over the Louisville Cardinals on Saturday.

Hurricanes were favored by 6.5 entering the game.

“It’s really why you come here,” Williams said. “You come to The U to set records. You come to this place to do something no one else has done.”

The Hurricanes tied their record for points in an ACC game with 52, done on four other occurrences.

Hurricanes are coming off a convincing 27-10 win over state rival Florida State, where Williams threw for a season-best 313 yards and two touchdowns. What a difference a week makes.

Williams shattered the single-game mark of five shared by six other Miami quarterbacks — Bernie Kosar, Steve Walsh, Ken Dorsey, Brock Berlin, Kyle Wright, and Stephen Morris.

Tight end Will Mallory and running back Deejay Dallas also had touchdown receptions for Miami (6-4, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). Williams completed 15 of 22 passes for 253 yards.

It just wasn’t Louisville’s day. Hassan Hall had a 58-yard touchdown run for the Cardinals (5-4, 3-3), and running back, Javian Hawkins had 105 yards on 15 attempts. Quarterback Micale Cunningham threw for two scores and ran for another before he left injured in the second half.

Cardinals also lost standout left tackle Mekhi Becton early with a left ankle injury.

“We didn’t execute in a lot of areas,” Hawkins said. “They did, and it showed.”

Cardinals committed three turnovers and had 14 penalties for 121 yards.

The beat goes on.

Cardinals will visit North Carolina State on Nov. 16. Louisville leads the series 6-3.

After a third bye week this season, the Hurricanes play FIU who is coach by ex-Miami coach Butch Davis at Marlins Park — the former Orange Bowl site — in Miami on Nov. 23.
