The Virginia Cavaliers and the Miami Hurricanes will match up on the college football circuit Friday.
Virginia comes into this one at 4-1 on the season. The Cavaliers opened up with four straight wins over Pittsburgh, William & Mary, Florida State and Old Dominion but fell 35-20 to Notre Dame their last time out.
In the Irish loss, Virginia QB Bryce Perkins posted 334 yards, two TDs and two INTs, while Wayne Taulapapa had 31 yards rushing. Hasise Dubois led the Cavs receivers on 143 yards and a TD from nine catches.
Over on the Miami side, they’re 2-3 this year. The Hurricanes have victories against B-CU and Central Michigan but have otherwise dropped to Florida, North Carolina and Virginia Tech.
In the 42-35 loss to the Hokies, Miami QB N’Kosi Perry had 422 yards with four TDs and one pick, and DeeJay Dallas had 66 yards and a TD rushing. Brevin Jordan had 136 yards with a TD on seven receptions there.
The Cavaliers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight in October and 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight conference games. Virginia is 2-5 ATS in their last seven Friday games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games versus a team with a losing home record.
Meanwhile, the Hurricanes are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 overall and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 after a straight-up loss. Miami is 1-4 ATS in their last five on grass and 2-9 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
Virginia initially put up a 17-14 halftime lead against the Irish, but let the game get away in the second half with a 21-3 score the rest of the way. Even though it was the lowest points output of the season for the Cavs there are still some positives to take away there.
As for Miami, they’ve played a couple of strong games against good opponents this year but don’t seem too consistent right now. I’m going to stick with Virginia here.
