The teams exchanged punts to open the quarter then the Hurricanes put together an impressive 93 yard drive in 10 plays. The Hurricanes used the run early to move away from their end zone and then Kaaya hit Malcolm Lewis for 48 yards to the Gamecock 9. Three plays later Gus Edwards run in from 3 yards out for the Canes’ first touchdown of the day. Kaaya hit Lewis with a two point conversion pass to make it a 17-14 USC lead.
That was the only score of the quarter but USC was at the Miami 39 as the quarter ended.
End of quarter…USC 17-Miami 14
