FORT LAUDERDALE -

Miami's competition for the starting quarterback job will continue into fall practice.

Stephen Morris completed 14 of 22 passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns Saturday, leading his Green team to a 30-17 win in Miami's spring game.

Jacory Harris completed 18 of 30 passes for 140 yards for the Orange team, with two interceptions.

"I'm disappointed about the interceptions," first-year head coach Al Golden said.

Golden indicated several times during the spring practice season, which ended Saturday, that he did not anticipate a starter to emerge until training camp. Miami starts formal practice for the 2011 season on Aug. 5.

He did not change his thinking after Saturday's scrimmage before 11,274 fans at Lockhart Stadium.

"We'll see how they evolve in the summer and preseason camp," Golden said. "It's too close to call right now."

Lamar Miller rushed 10 times for 166 yards and three touchdowns for the Green team, which got seven catches for 81 yards and a touchdown from Kendall Thompkins.

Storm Johnson ran for 34 yards on seven carries for the Orange team.

Many members of Miami's 2001 national championship team - including Ken Dorsey, Andre Johnson, Bryant McKinnie and Antrel Rolle - were honored at halftime. NFL stars Jon Beason and Devin Hester were also on the sidelines as well as Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Irvin.

Miami officials said about 300 football alumni were back in town for the weekend events.
