No. 19 Miami 31, at South Florida 10: Javarris James rushed for two touchdowns, Jacory Harris threw for two more, and the Hurricanes took a big early lead on the way to beating the Bulls. Dedrick Epps and Leonard Hankerson caught touchdown passes for Miami (9-3), which ran out to a 21-3 halftime lead and capped its first nine-win regular season since 2005. Damien Berry rushed for 114 yards and Graig Cooper had 83 more for Miami, which played without ill left tackle Jason Fox and still rolled. The Bulls fell to 7-28 all-time when giving up at least 31 points and 10-2 against teams from the state of Florida, with both those losses against Miami.
