Miami Hurricanes at Virginia Cavaliers: Previews and Game Thread!

The Hoos are on in a 2-week streak without losing! During that time, Virginia defeated NC State and outlasted a bye week. Can they make it a hat trick? Three weeks without losing, plus three straight years of beating Miami?

Complete and ongoing coverage.

After Virginia surprised just about everybody last week with a defensive explosion and offensive life, Vegas took note and opened the line with Miami as 3 point favorites. Big money's been put on Virginia to cover, so much so that the Hoos are now the favorites against the ACC Coastal Division leaders!

Shocking, to say the least, and most models and predictions still have Miami squarely taking this one. Virginia needs to win out for bowl eligibility, while Miami just needs one more.

Late last night, Virginia DE Eli Harold, who was declared out in this week's injury report due to "medical" reasons, tweeted that he is "Good to go!" The injury reports are voluntary and non-binding, but ultimately it's the coaches' decision whether Harold is, in fact, good to go. He has since deleted that tweet.

Virginia has won four of the past six against Miami, including the past two straight. Has Virginia's offense finally turned the corner on the season? Will the defense be able to put up as dominant a performance as it did last week? Can special teams minimize its mistakes? Ultimately, can the Cavaliers find a way to win in Charlottesville?

Leave your pre-, in- and post-game thoughts here, and GO HOOS!
