Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(MIAMI GARDENS, Fla.) — It wasn’t easy, but the University of Miami’s undefeated season remains intact after their 24-21 win over Wake Forest on Saturday.

Wake Forrest jumped out to a 14-3 lead in the second quarter, but the Hurricanes refused to quit.

Running back Duke Johnson’s 4-yard touchdown run with under six minutes left in the fourth quarter gave Miami the lead back. But with about four minutes left to play, Wake Forest wide receiver Dominique Gibson caught a 44-yard touchdown pass to give them a 21-17 lead.

It was up to Miami to march down the field and score a touchdown, which is exactly what they did when Johnson again scored the go-ahead-touchdown with under a minute left to give the Hurricanes the 24-21 win, and improve to 7-0.

Hurricane’s quarterback Stephen Morris completed 17 of 28 passes for 191 yards with a touchdown while Johnson had 168 rushing yards on 30 carries on the ground to go with the two clutch touchdowns.

Next Saturday, Miami will get their biggest test of the season when they’ll face off against fellow ACC rival Florida State, who is ranked second in the nation going into Saturday.
