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.
