Hokies, Hurricanes to collide in south Florida for Coastal Division lead

Hokies, Hurricanes to collide in south Florida for Coastal Division lead”

Over the past few week, Virginia Tech's running game has consistently improved. The victor of Saturday's matchup in Florida gains the upper hand in the ACC's Coastal Division race.

Foster's guys are second in the nation in scoring defense but it's going to feel like Virginia Tech looking in a mirror.

Step one in the process, check.

The stakes could not be higher.

Both Virginia Tech and Miami have first-year starters at quarterback, and both have been successful.

One more loss, however, would eliminate Virginia from the race.

Cam Phillips needs just 8 yards to get to 700 on the season, with 6 touchdowns. The Hokies finish the season at Georgia Tech, with Pittsburgh and on the road at the Cavaliers of Virginia. They don't have impressive rushing numbers - Rosier is averaging 30 yards a game on the ground, Jackson 24 - but they both have shown the ability to escape.

Columnist Aaron McFarling seemed especially juiced for today's podcast, in which he and I recap our Halloween experience last night and touch briefly on the Duke win before turning all of our attention to this week's critical Coastal clash against the Hurricanes.

Virginia Tech wasn't expected to be a Top 4 contender this week, but Miami was, and the Hurricanes came up way short of the Top 4, falling at No. 10 in the rankings.

They play very aggressively. "It's helped our program grow, playing those folks". While the Hokies will not have any ranked opponents on their schedule after the Canes, UM will have to match up against No. 5 Notre Dame the very next weekend - a team that is playing its best football of the season with six-straight wins.

"I don't think it really matters", Richt said of Miami's recent close calls. "I think they are one of the better teams in America". "I mean they're big and athletic and well-coached and certainly have guys that can make big plays on you if you're not careful, " Fuente said.

Tight end Chris Cunningham, a native of Jacksonville, Florida, has some personal motivation.

Miami QB Malik Rosier only hit on 16 of 38 throws on the day, but they went for 356 yards with three touchdowns.

"I have a real good memory of certain things, mainly recruiting. I was proud of him", Fuente said. "I'm glad they didn't offer me because of that".

I leave you this week by reminding you that can put a bet on just about anything, if you're willing to live with a little online gambling sloppiness.

The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide will face a ranked team for the first time since their season opener against Florida State this Saturday when they host the No. 19 LSU Tigers.

The Hurricanes are led by their quarterback play. "So they're back. I think they've got a pretty good D-line".
