Kaaya throws 4 TD passes in win over Pittsburgh

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Brad Kaaya passed for 356 yards and four touchdowns, and Miami snapped a four-game losing streak by beating Pittsburgh 51-28 on Saturday.

Stacy Coley and David Njoku each caught two touchdown passes and Ahmmon Richards finished with 144 yards receiving for Miami (5-4, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). Kaaya also ran for a score for the Hurricanes, who avoided becoming the first Miami team to lose five straight in the same season since 1977.

“So many really good things happened, I don’t really know where to start,” Miami coach Mark Richt said. “The bottom line is we got a great victory in front of our home crowd, and I’m very thankful.”

Mark Walton ran for 125 yards, the last 55 of those coming on a touchdown with 2:12 left. It was Miami’s most points in an ACC game since scoring 52 against Duke on Nov. 24, 2012.
