MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Tracy Howard returned an interception 19 yards for a touchdown on the game's first snap, the first of four scores created by Miami's defense, and the Hurricanes kept their divisional title hopes alive by beating Virginia 45-26 on Saturday.

Stephen Morris passed for 214 yards and two touchdowns in his home finale for Miami (8-3, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who snapped a three-game losing streak. Dallas Crawford rushed for two touchdowns, Allen Hurns had 126 receiving yards and a score and Stacy Coley had a 62-yard touchdown catch for Miami.

David Gilbert ran a fumble back 72 yards for a touchdown in the final minutes for Miami. Both of Crawford's scores were set up by interceptions, one by Ladarius Gunter, the other by Kacy Rodgers II.

Taquan Mizzell had two touchdowns and Kevin Parks ran for 130 yards and a score for Virginia (2-9, 0-7).
