MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Hurricanes stayed unbeaten on Saturday with a 41-8 blowout win over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
The Hurricanes forced FOUR Notre Dame Turnovers in the victory. Miami now sits second in America in turnover margin at plus-15.
The famed “turnover chain” is awarded on the sideline to every Canes defender who catches an interception or recovers a fumble.
On Saturday, Jaquan Johnson, Malek Young, and Trajan Bandy grabbed interceptions. Bandy scored a touchdown on his, returning the pick 65 yards to the end zone late in the second quarter.
Jonathan Garvin forced and recovered a fumble late in the fourth quarter.
Here’s Miami’s updated TURNOVER CHAIN TRACKER. The competition for the top spot keeps getting tighter.
Jaquan Johnson: 4 (three interceptions, one fumble recovery)
Michael Jackson: 4 (four interceptions)
Sheldrick Redwine: 3 (two interceptions, one fumble recovery)
Malek Young: 2 ( two interceptions)
Jonathan Garvin: 2 (two fumble recoveries)
Trajan Bandy: 1 (one interception)
Michael Pinckney: 1 (interception)
Dee Delaney: 1 (interception)
Charles Perry: 1 (interception)
Pat Bethel: 1 (fumble recovery)
RJ McIntosh: 1 (fumble recovery)
Shaq Quarterman: 1 (fumble recovery)
Ryan Fines: 1 (fumble recovery)
*Demetrius Jackson: 1 (interception – *He technically didn’t put the chain on because he fumbled back to Syracuse on the same play.)
Even Miami’s biggest hater, ESPN’s Paul Finebaum, rocked the chain after that Hurricanes victory over the Golden Domers. And, NO, Finebaum did not earn a spot in the tracker. Credit to Canes great Jonathan Vilma for making this happen.
Up next, the Hurricanes will host the Virginia Cavaliers at 12-Noon on Saturday, November 18th from Hard Rock Stadium. Who will be the next Cane to put on the chain?
