Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya has repeatedly said he would make a decision about his future after the Russell Athletic Bowl against West Virginia.
Decision time has come, and Kaaya did his best to impress NFL scouts, overcoming a slow first quarter to help the Hurricanes beat the No. 16 Mountaineers 31-14 on Wednesday and win their first bowl game since 2006. After starting 5-of-13, Kaaya went 19-of-21 with four touchdown passes to blow open a game West Virginia led early.
It took more than a quarter for the Hurricanes to get a first down. But once they got rolling, it was hard to stop them, and that allowed Miami (9-4) to break an ugly bowl losing streak that had been a constant reminder over the past decade.
