The Hurricanes defense had actually come up with various stops through the night and did so again with 5: 36 left in the 4th quarter and Virginia protecting its two-point lead. Tyler Van Dyke, beginning place of injured quarterback D’Eriq King, led the Miami offense 75 yards down the field in 13 plays, eating up the clock and making Virginia burn its timeouts along the method.
Miami fell to 2-3 on the season with the loss in their ACC opener. There were some highlights for Van Dyke in his 2nd profession start, consisting of a touchdown run early in the fourth quarter to cut the Virginia result in 30-28
Virginia got in the game with the nation’s finest passing offense but Brennan Armstrong was restricted to simply 268 backyards on 25- of-44 passing with one goal and one interception. That a person touchdown simply occurred to be one of the very best plays we’ll see all year, a near-interception for Miami that Virginia wide receiver Dontayvion Wicks was able to snag on his back after a deflection.
The catch may have been incredible, however the truth Virginia won was not stunning. Miami had a field objective effort with a chance to win thanks to its play in the second half, but if that attempt is good the Hurricanes would be feeling lucky to have gotten off to a 1-0 start in ACC play.
Virginia had lost 5 of the last 6 to the Hurricanes and had actually not won in Miami considering that 2011, making this a special win for Bronco Mendenhall and his program even after starting the year with a number of conference losses. If the Wahoos get hot they have actually got an essential head-to-head win here and plenty of crucial games ahead to stay alive in the department race.
