CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Miami quarterback Ryan Williams threw for 115 yards and a touchdown in his return to action at the Medal of Honor Bowl on Saturday.

Williams helped the National team to a 26-14 victory - and gained himself some extra looks from NFL personnel on hand.

The 6-foot-6 Williams expected to compete for the Hurricanes' starting job this year, instead tearing a knee ligament in the spring. While he got himself ready to play in September yet spent the season on the sideline behind Miami's Brad Kaaya.

Still, Williams was invited to the game for NFL prospects and took full advantage of his opportunity.

Williams had a perfectly thrown, 11-yard fade pass to South Carolina's Damiere Byrd in the third quarter that put the National team ahead for good.
