In a highly-anticipated top-10 matchup Saturday night, the Miami Hurricanes struggled to get anything going offensively against top-ranked Clemson.

With seconds left in the first half, Miami trailed 21-3, with Clemson attempting to add three more points with a field goal.

Then, things got weird.

Clemson lined up for a 61-yard field goal attempt, but it was blocked by Miami. The ball bounced right into the hands of one of Miami's special team players, and was returned for a touchdown.

D'Eriq King struggled mightily in the first half, completing just four of his 12 passes for a paltry 37 yards. On the other side of the field, Trevor Lawrence cruised to 244 passing yards and two touchdowns in the same half.

It took a crazy blocked kick for Miami to finally get in the end zone. Maybe it will end up being the spark they needed, going into halftime down just 11 instead of 21.
