Miami Hurricanes Defeat University of West Virginia

The number one-ranked U.S. college football team, the Miami Hurricanes, scored a lopsided 45-3 victory Thursday night over the University of West Virginia.

Hurricanes' quarterback Ken Dorsey tossed his 47 and 48 career touchdown passes to tie the school record held by Vinny Testaverde and Steve Walsh. Walsh was on hand to watch the game, as Dorsey completed 16-of-27 passes for 192 yards with one interception. Walsh said he had come to the game to see Dorsey break the record and wished he had gotten one more touchdown pass to do it.

It was Miami's 16th straight victory, the second-longest winning streak in Division IA college football behind Oklahoma. Miami is 6-0 this season.
