Dorsey has completed 152-of-279 passes (54.5%) for 2,265 yards and 21 Touchdowns (tied for No. 7 on UM's single season list) in leading No. 1-ranked Miami to a 9-0 (4-0 BIG EAST) record this season. Along the way, Dorsey has set new UM career records for passing yards, completions, attempts, and total offense. The senior signalcaller also has thrown for 200 or more yards in seven of nine games, surpassing 300 yards three times and one 422-yard effort.
Dorsey also has set BIG EAST career records for passing touchdowns (79),
passing yards (8,461), and pass completions (598) on the way to improving
his career starting record to 35-1 (.972), including UM's current 31-game
winning streak. The winningest quarterback in UM history, Dorsey is looking
to become the first QB in school history to lead the Hurricanes to three
consecutive 10-win seasons, a feat he can accomplish in Miami's next
victory. Dorsey has completed 598 of 1,039 pass attempts (57.6 % - 5th in UM
history) for 8,461 yards and 79 touchdowns with only 24 interceptions during
his four-year Miami career.
