“I came to The U for this kind of game. You came to The U for this kind of game.” - Mark Richt
Truer words have seldom been spoken. After years of mediocrity, and flat our terrible play, the Miami Hurricanes have a game of consequence the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the 2003 season.
If you’re not there, this is all the information you’re going to need to watch the action unfold.
Miami Hurricanes (7-0, 4-0 ACC) vs Virginia Tech Hokies (7-1, 3-1 ACC)
Kickoff time: 8:00pm
TV: ABC (National Broadcast)
Online Stream: WatchESPN App/ACC Network Extra (same thing, you guys) *Subject to blackouts
Odds: Opened: Canes -1.5; moved to as high as VT -3; as of Saturday morning: Canes -1; O/U 46.5
This game has huge implications for the ACC Coastal. Not only does this game give the winner a head to head tiebreaker, it COULD determine the winner of the division. Here’s what I mean:
#Canes ACC Coastal clinching scenario:— (((Ian Hest))) (@IanHest) November 3, 2017
3pm - GT beats Virginia
8pm - Miami beats VaTech
Should Miami lose (which we here at SOTU do not hope happens, but accept as a possibility), the Canes could still win the Coastal Division with the following circumstances:
Even with a loss to VT, #Canes clinch Coastal with:— (((Ian Hest))) (@IanHest) November 3, 2017
-VT loss @ GT, OR vs Pitt, OR @ UVA
-Miami wins vs UVA AND @ Pitt
Either way, this game is going to be huge. HUGE.
This is the unofficial ACC Coastal Division Championship game. THIS is the reason Mark Richt, this staff, and these players came to Miami.
Time to rise to the occasion and own the moment.
