Lex Hilliard and Daniel Thomas scored on short runs in the first half and Dan Carpenter tacked on a 39-yard field goal in the second quarter. Carpenter also had a 44-yarder in the third to give Miami a 20-0 cushion heading into the final 15 minutes.

The lone Carolina touchdown came on a 4-yard run by Tyrell Sutton midway through the fourth period.
