After a week off, the Miami Hurricanes return to the gridiron, in time to kick off the meat of their ACC schedule. The Canes are 2-2, coming off an uninspiring 17-12 victory over Central Michigan but having just had some of their best practices of the year, according to Manny Diaz. Today is a huge game folks - regardless of how poor Virginia Tech has played so far, Miami coming out and dominating from start to finish would go a long way to restoring confidence both to the players and fans. So before we kick off at 3:30 EST at Hard Rock, let’s get to your news and notes on this Saturday.

New starting QBs have dominated Miami in recent years. Will Hendon Hooker and Virginia Tech be able to keep that trend going on Saturday? For the #Canes’ sake, let’s hope not. #TheU https://t.co/5IXERL5EoD pic.twitter.com/TPKMawGF3x— StateOfTheU.com (@TheStateOfTheU) October 4, 2019
