Final Score: Miami 30, Virginia Tech 12

Even though the Miami Hurricanes were dominated by the Virginia Tech Hokies from a statistical standpoint, Miami came out on top, knocking off its conference rival in dominating fashion.

The Miami defense was very opportunistic, forcing three Logan Thomas turnovers and also blocking a punt in the first quarter.

With that win, Miami is now in the driver's seat to win the Coastal Division and play in the ACC title game on December 1.

Virginia Tech on the other hand is now guaranteed its first season of less than 10 wins in eight years. The Hokies are also on the bowl bubble as they will have to win two of their remaining three games to become bowl eligible.

Miami running back Duke Johnson was dominant on offense and special teams. He had 217 all-purpose yards, including an 81-yard return on a kickoff.

He also had 99 yards rushing and a touchdown on 12 carries, including a 65-yard scamper.
