MOBILE, Ala.—Austin Boucher threw for 289 yards and two touchdowns and Thomas Merriweather added 100 yards and scores on the ground to lead Miami to a 35-21 victory over Middle Tennessee Thursday night in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.
The victory made the RedHawks the first team in FBS history to go from double-digits losses (1-11 in 2009) to double-digit wins (10-4 in 2010). Miami aslo finished with an eight-game turnaround, the second-best effort in FBS history.
Miami fell behind 7-0 late in the first quarter on an 18-yard touchdown run by Middle Tennessee's Philiip Tanner with 4:37 left in the first quarter. But Miami immediately answered back in a fashion seen many times in 2010. Boucher and Armand Robinson connected on a 70-yard catch-and-run down the sideline. It was the longest reception of Robinson's career and the longest in Miami bowl history. The play ended at the three-yard line where Merriweather took it in for the tying touchdown with 2:56 to play in the quarter. On the very next series, though, a 49-yard touchdown run by Dwight Dasher with 40 seconds remaining in the first quarter gave MT a 14-7 lead.
