The previous record for victory margin was 70 — set against Savannah State in 2013. The 77 points scored also tied a school record.
It was Miami’s first shutout since blanking Bethune-Cookman in 2015 and the first shutout for defensive coordinator Manny Diaz in exactly six years. Diaz was at Texas when the Longhorns blanked New Mexico on Sept. 8, 2012.
Malik Rosier threw for two scores and rushed for another, N’Kosi Perry came off the bench to throw the first three touchdown passes of his collegiate career, and No. 22 Miami set a school record for margin of victory in a 77-0 win over Savannah State on Saturday night.
The Canes next travel to Toledo, Ohio, to face the Toledo Rockets at noon Saturday. The Rockets, in the West division of the Mid-American Conference, are 1-0 after dominating VMI 66-3 in their Sept. 1 opener. Last weekend was open for them, as they rested up and got an extra week to prepare for the Hurricanes.
UM defeated Toledo 52-30 on Sept. 23 of last season.
