ORLANDO — It looked bad when the Miami Hurricanes trailed 21-0 in the first quarter. It looked worse when star quarterback D’Eriq King went down with an apparent knee injury late in the first half.
Through it all, 18th-ranked Miami fought back against the No. 21 Cowboys, but the rally behind backup quarterback N’Kosi Perry came up short. UM fell, 37-34, in the Cheez-It Bowl at Orlando’s Camping World Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Hurricanes (8-3, 7-2 ACC) finish 2020 with two consecutive losses to ranked teams after getting drubbed, 62-26, against North Carolina on Dec.
