Through seven games, the University of Miami has proven one thing: It can take a punch.

The Hurricanes, 7-0, won another skin-of-their-teeth game Saturday afternoon, holding a hapless North Carolina team 24-19. Once again, North Carolina gave UM all it wanted, but again, the Hurricanes came out victorious.

The Tar Heels had a chance to win, but Joshua Brown fumbled with 2:11 to play at the UM 37.

“I’ve done it too long to apologize for winning. We’ve won (12) in a row. That’s a good thing,” Hurricanes coach Mark Richt said. “But you take pride in what you do and when it’s not as clean as you want it to be, it’s bothersome. It hurts.”

Miami has won its last four games by a total of 18 points.

"I know this: If we keep a cool head and we make good decisions and we execute what we're calling, we've got a chance to come back and win," Richt said. "That's what I think the team has done, even in the tightest of circumstances."

This time, quarterback Malik Rosier threw for 356 yards. Receiver Jeff Brown caught 101 yards worth of passes.

The Hurricanes play host to No. 13 Virginia Tech next week.
