CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Kurt Benkert completed 16 of 27 passes for 143 yards and a touchdown on Saturday night, as Virginia fell to Miami 34-14.
Brad Kaaya threw two touchdown passes and Mark Walton ran for 111 yards and another score Saturday.
Kaaya connected with David Njoku for a 7-yard score and Ahmmon Richards for a 77-yard touchdown, the latter making Kaaya just the second quarterback in history to throw for over 9,000 yards in his career at Miami (6-4, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). Only Ken Dorsey, with 9,565, has more.
The Cavaliers (2-8, 1-5) honored fourth- and fifth-year seniors before their final home game, but lost their fifth in a row. Virginia trailed 17-14 at halftime, but mustered just 28 yards in the third quarter as Miami pulled away.
Walton's 15-yard run, capped as he arched his back to reach the end zone, essentially put the game away with 11:17 remaining. It gave the sophomore 21 touchdowns in 23 career games, and 11 touchdowns this season.
Miami makes its first trip to Raleigh, North Carolina since 2008 to face North Carolina State.
Virginia plays at Georgia Tech.
