MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP and HurricaneSports.com) - Dallas Crawford and Gus Edwards both scored three touchdowns and No. 16 Miami got into the end zone on its first seven possessions, rolling to a 77-7 victory over Savannah State on Saturday night.

The Hurricanes set a school record for points in a game, topping the 75 scored against Fordham in 1954.

Miami (3-0) lost quarterback Stephen Morris to a lower right leg injury with 8:51 left in the opening quarter. Hurricanes coach Al Golden said in a televised halftime interview that Morris was ``fine'' and X-rays were negative.

Stacy Coley had a kickoff return for a score and a touchdown catch for Miami, which has won five straight games for the first time since 2008. Duke Johnson, Allen Hurns and Beau Sandland all added a touchdown for the Hurricanes, in a game that had the final quarter shortened to 12 minutes by mutual agreement of the coaches.
