CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Even after a record-setting day, Miami quarterback Stephen Morris wasted no time trying to get his team locked in on the next game.

With good reason. It's Miami-Notre Dame week. The Hurricanes (4-1) and the ninth-ranked Fighting Irish (4-0) play in Chicago on Saturday night.

Morris set a school- and Atlantic Coast Conference-record with 566 yards passing in Miami's victory over North Carolina State on Saturday, and threw a 62-yard touchdown pass to win it with 19 seconds left.

Within minutes of the final whistle, he had his team huddled together in the locker room, telling them about the importance of any game that rekindles the storied rivalry between the Irish and the Hurricanes.

Morris says he's "been waiting for this game since freshman year."
