FAMU falls to Miami 41 – 7
The FAMU defensive line applied very little pressure on UM’s quarterbacks all night long and were shredded for 416 yards, 198 rushing and 218 passing.

Florida A&M could not repeat one if its biggest upsets in history when they defeated the Hurricanes back in the Rudy Hubbard era, in fact, they barely got on the scoreboard in this one. FAMU’s only touchdown came on a bad snap on a rare Miami punt and special teams player John Boston recovered the football for FAMU.
FAMU’s offense looked good on two of it’s drives, but each time they got close on those two drives dirty laundry seemed to fall out of the pockets of the game officials. Miami’s offense did not look much better even in putting up 41 points on FAMU’s inept defense. Quarterback Brad Kaaya passed for 177 yards on 12 of 22 passing with two TD’s to Phillip Dorsett. But he also threw two interceptions. Jacques Bryant was on the receiving end of one of those and had a pretty good return of 22 yards while Darren Parker grabbed the other in the end zone to kill one Miami drive.
Miami punted just one time all game and FAMU punted the ball 10 times. FAMU’s quarterbacks passed for a measly 89 yards with Damien Fleming being pulled in the second half and Carson Royal getting in some snaps and going 0 – 3 in passing. FAMU did not fair much better running the ball as the team amassed a total of 25 yards rushing and a game total of 5 first down.
FAMU had a bye last week before hosting Costal Carolina this weekend in Bragg Stadium for their first home game of the 2014 season, FAMU lost all of it’s home games last year.
