Virginia Tech Falls Short in Final Minutes

Miami takes over first in ACC Coastal

MIAMI -- Javarris James ran for a touchdown, Matt Bosher kicked three field goals, and Miami got a huge defensive stand in the final minutes to beat Virginia Tech 16-14 on Thursday night and move into first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division.

Marcus Robinson had three sacks and a big third-down tackle for a loss with 2:27 left to help the Hurricanes win their fifth straight.

Virginia Tech quarterback Tyrod Taylor ran for two touchdowns, including a 6-yarder with 3:28 remaining for the Hokies (6-4, 3-3), who had won four of the last five meetings against the Hurricanes. They now essentially need a miracle to stay in the ACC title picture.
