The Miami defense missed a few tackles that led to big plays for the Cavaliers.

After a rough outing against Virginia, the Miami Hurricanes slipped to a disappointing 5-5 on the season and 4-3 in the ACC. Heading into the game, Miami held a slim one-game advantage over the Duke Blue Devils for sole possession of the Coastal Division lead.

The Cavaliers knew nothing of its 3-6 record and immediately attacked the Hurricanes scoring on the first three possessions.

Miami was able to respond behind the star-studded effort of true freshman sensation Duke Johnson, but it wasn't enough to win. Virginia overcame a ten-point deficit in the fourth quarter and scored a touchdown with only six seconds remaining on a phenomenal touch pass by Michael Rocco to tight end Jake McGee.

The final score showed Virginia with 41 to the Hurricanes' 40. Miami's home finale is a non-conference matchup next week against the South Florida Bulls.

Here are five things we learned about the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday.
