Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Stephen Morris threw two first-half touchdowns as Miami-Florida rolled to a 30-12 win over Virginia Tech in a key Atlantic Coast Conference showdown from Sun Life Stadium.

Duke Johnson rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries to help Miami (5-4, 4-2 ACC) halt a three-game losing streak and take over sole possession of the ACC's Coastal Division. Jake Wieclaw contributed three field goals to the victory, while Morris finished with 170 yards on 13-of-28 passing and did not commit a turnover.

Logan Thomas racked up a career-high 124 yards on the ground with a touchdown and added 199 passing yards on 19-of-37 efficiency for Virginia Tech (4-5, 2-3), but was responsible for two red-zone giveaways that played a part in the Hokies' second straight loss and fourth defeat in five outings. The junior quarterback was intercepted on the game's first drive and later lost a fumble on the Miami 1-yard line during the third quarter.

Virginia Tech also had a punt blocked that led to a Miami touchdown, while kicker Jimmy Journell missed an extra point as well as a 47-yard field goal attempt and Thomas threw another interception in the game's final stages.
