GREENSBORO, N.C. – University of Miami freshman quarterback Jacory Harris has earned Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Week honors announced by the league office Monday.

Harris threw the game-tying and game-winning TD passes in Miami’s 24-17 overtime win over Virginia, completing 12 of 21 passes for 160 yards, to claim his third ACC Rookie-of-the-Week honor. Harris rallied the Hurricanes on the road at Virginia completing a 26-yard touchdown pass to Laron Byrd with 55 seconds left in regulation and a 9-yard touchdown pass to Aldarius Johnson in overtime. He completed 57.1 percent of his passes. It was the second time in three weeks that Harris rallied the Hurricanes on the road in helping push their winning streak to four games.

A Miami quarterback has captured the ACC Rookie of the Week Award in each of the past three weeks with Harris winning it twice and Robert Marve taking the award last week.

Clemson running back C.J. Spiller, Wake Forest cornerback Alphonso Smith, Clemson offensive lineman Thomas Austin, Wake Forest defensive lineman Boo Robinson, Georgia Tech defensive lineman Michael Johnson and Wake Forest placekicker Shane Popham were the other weekly honorees.
