How to watch Miami (Fla.) vs. Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech Mailbag On Justin Fuente and that $15 million buyout

Miami, coming off a bye week, fell to 2-3 overall, 0-2 in the league.

The Hokies (3-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 21-0 after one quarter, 28-0 with 9:30 left in the first half and 35-14 midway through the fourth quarter.

But the Hokies answered.

Virginia Tech: The Hokies avoided their worst start in conference play since 1951 - when they were in the Southern Conference. It's been so tough, in fact, that it's making one Virginia Tech player physically ill on the field.

Miami had one last chance. That's when N'Kosi Perry launched a Hail Mary that was tipped, then caught by Mark Pope for the touchdown.

With Virginia Tech leading 28-0 in the second quarter, Miami was facing a 3rd-and-goal from the Hokies' four-yard-line.

The Miami football team's inability to contain Hooker on the ground was a large factor in the Hokies' success on third down. The Hokies later converted a Mike Harley fumble in a 1-yard touchdown run by James Mitchell.

The Samsung Chromebook 3 has always been one of the best budget offerings in the Chromebook space. This is, in part, due to the larger 15.6-inch display with a higher pixel count of 1920 by 1080.

The final score often obscures how that result came about, and Tech was by no means ideal at Hard Rock Stadium. Five plays later on a second third down and six yards to go, Hiooker ran 12 yards for a touchdown to put Virginia Tech on the board first. Jeff Thomas had two touchdown catches and 124 receiving yards for Miami, and Brevin Jordan had a TD grab to go along with 136 receiving yards.

Miami's quarterbacks - Jarren Williams and N'Kosi Perry - are combined 13-of-23 for 217 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions. Keene caught five passes for 73 yards and three touchdowns. Miami has surrendered 18 sacks, including 10 in a season-opening loss against Florida.

Virginia Tech: Host Rhode Island on October 12. "Battled back. Not just in the game, but through the week of preparation".

There'd been plenty of bad, with an embarrassing loss at home to Duke, the slow start to the season, mounting injuries, a little bit of attrition, Bud Foster's pending retirement, the NCAA's denial of Brock Hoffman's immediate eligibility and the Sports Illustrated article that laid bare for a national audience pretty much everything that had gone wrong in the program over the previous year. On that play, Hooker made a nice fake and hit Keene for a 26-yard gain to the Miami 3.

There is no quarterback controversy for the Miami Hurricanes.

The Hokies return to action Saturday when they take on Rhode Island in a nonconference game slated for 4 p.m. Tech's last - and only - meeting with the Rams came in 1980 when the Hokies rolled to a 34-7 victory at Lane Stadium.
