#15 Miami Hurricanes @ Virginia Tech Hokies

The ACC Coastal Division is always one that is tightly contested, and this year should be no exception whatsoever. The Hokies are going to be one of the top teams in the land once again this year, but the Hurricanes, under first year coach Al Golden, are going to be looking to make an impression by taking them to their first conference championship game since joining the ACC.

The Hurricanes are really under the gun in this one. QB Jacory Harris knows that he needs to really get his act in gear against a Virginia Tech team that has dominated him over the years. Harris threw for 1,793 yards and 14 TDs last season against 15 picks. However, there is a real question whether or not Stephen Morris will end up taking over. Harris has the experience, but Morris has the better skills in all likelihood even though his numbers were worse with 1,240 yards and seven scores in 2010. The cupboard isn’t totally dry in South Beach this year, but things definitely aren’t as good as they have been in the past. This trip to Layne Stadium is going to be tough, but the good news is that the team did go 4-2 SU and 3-3 ATS as visitors this year, so the upset in this one isn’t out of the question.

As one could tell just by looking at the scores in this series, Head Coach Frank Beamer has consistently put together a defense that has been able to stuff up the Canes. This year should be no exception, as VT is coming off of a season in which it allowed just 20.6 points per game a season ago. Offensively, QB Tyrod Taylor has moved on, and over the last several seasons, there haven’t been many other players take snaps. Taylor threw 24 TDs against five picks, numbers which are going to be hard for QB Logan Thomas. Last season’s loss to the James Madison Dukes was the end of a disastrous stretch of games, but since that point, Beamer Ball has taken over again and the Hokies have been remarkable. The hope is that that keeps up to get them back into the ACC Championship Game once again.
