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.
