UMSHoF member Gino Torretta outshone the Cougar's QB by passing for 365 yards and 4 touchdowns in the contest ! Torretta tossed two touchdowns each to Lamar Thomas and Kevin Williams, including a 71 yard bomb
Klingler ended the evening 32 of 59, but for only 216 yards. He was sacked 6 times by the Miami defense that allowed only 287 total yards. Klingler had passed for 510 yards and NINE touchdowns the week before in a 73-3 romp over Louisiana tech !
The hoped-for classic game never materialized as the Canes streaked to a 30-3 halftime lead...and led 40-3 before Klingler tossed his only touchdown pass...with 3 seconds remaining in the game !
The two teams combined for 96 passes, 46 of them incomplete...and 31 penalties...that led to the longest game in UM history at 3 hours 54 minutes !
