Miami looked to Potter after kicker Caleb Sturgis aggravated a previous groin injury early in the game.

The first field goal on the day for Potter came in the first quarter from 48 yards to put Miami up 3-0. His second three pointer came in the third quarter to give Miami some breathing room, 20-7.
