Good Morning Canes fans. Another week has come and gone, and we’re once again arrived to the safe haven of Friday. There’s plenty of headlines from the University of Miami with this week’s contest against the University of Virginia getting marquee billing.

The Cavaliers are coming off of a BYE/OPEN week, having last played NC State a couple of weeks ago. Of course, the Hurricanes are coming off another win against Florida State, looking to keep pace with Virginia Tech in the race to win the ACC Coastal. Both UM and VT currently have two wins in ACC competition.

Your captains for the weekend are as follows:

Offense: OG Haydon Mahoney, RB Travis Homer

Defense: S Jaquan Johnson

Special Teams: WR Jeff Thomas

No notes on the injury front: WR Jeff Thomas was the only player listed as questionable to play, but he did go through practice and is believed to be available for Saturday.
