MIAMI -- Freshman Jon Peattie kicked a 23-yard field goal with 11 seconds remaining as No. 2 Miami staved off an upset with a 22-20 victory over West Virginia on Thursday night.

Peattie, who won Player of the Game honors, finished with a school-record five field goals, his biggest coming after Miami drove 66 yards with two minutes remaining.

Brock Berlin needed a fourth-down completion to Kellen Winslow to keep the drive alive. On fourth-and-13 from the Miami 25, Berlin hit Winslow over the middle. The tight end made a leaping catch for a 16-yard gain.

Berlin finished 37-of-54 for 352 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Winslow caught 10 passes for 104 yards.

The Mountaineers had one final chance with five seconds to play, but Sean Taylor intercepted Rasheed Marshall's deep pass. Taylor started to run, then dropped to a knee, jumped up and heaved the ball into the air.
