Miami quarterback Stephen Morris has been overshadowed by other signal callers such as Geno Smith in recent weeks despite playing really good football. Against North Carolina today, however, he was having a sub-par performance, tossing a pair of interceptions. Unfortunately for him, Morris didn’t have a chance to end the day on a high note.
Morris went down with a left ankle injury about midway through the fourth quarter and did not return to the game. No official diagnosis has been given for the injury. He had thrown for 155 yards and completed less than 50 percent of his attempts.
Memphis transfer Ryan Williams finished the game, which UNC won 18-14, throwing for 80 yards.
The loss is Miami’s first ACC defeat of the season. North Carolina moves to 2-1 in the ACC Coastal.
