By Tim Reynolds THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI – The last Thursday night game at the venerable Orange Bowl was something for the Miami Hurricanes to cherish. And it was a win they desperately needed. Wright completed 21 of 26 passes, finding Cooper with one scoring throw and Chris Zellner with another late in the third quarter to make it 31-0. Sam Shields had six catches for 117 yards for Miami, which had three scoring drives take a combined 1 minute, 9 seconds. “We had to trust each other, come out, play hard,” Shields said. “And win.” The Hurricanes, who are 10-0 on Thursday nights at home since 1986, are leaving the Orange Bowl for Dolphin Stadium next season. “This is something that’s going to get us on a roll,” Wright said. “It kind of got our confidence back up.” Stephen McGee had a 1-yard touchdown run with 8:03 left for Texas A&M, and backup quarterback Jerrod Johnson threw a 33-yard TD pass to tight end Martellus Bennett with 5 seconds left. Texas A&M’s three leading rushers – McGee, Mike Goodson and Jorvorskie Lane – came into the game averaging a combined 235 yards, a big reason why the Aggies’ were ranked fifth nationally in rushing offense with nearly 300 yards per outing. That trio rushed for 21 yards in the first half and 69 for the game. Lane had no carries in the first half, and the Aggies didn’t get on the board until Matt Szymanski’s 32-yard field goal with 11:40 left.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Kyle Wright threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns, Graig Cooper scored twice and the Hurricanes stymied No. 20 Texas A&M’s high-powered offense in a 34-17 victory – just the second in their last nine games against ranked opponents. “It was a Thursday night game, prime time, so the nation got to come out and see what we really have as a University of Miami football team,” Hurricanes coach Randy Shannon said. The Aggies (3-1) entered averaging 46.3 points, scoring at least 38 in every game. Those numbers plummeted against the Hurricanes (3-1), who held a 402-240 edge in yards and said a spotlight game like this represented the perfect chance to make a statement. It came through loud and clear. “We just got beat, got beat by a better team,” Texas A&M coach Dennis Franchione said.
