Default Virginia Tech @ Miami

alright guys, what's your prediction's on this one? Although I thought it might be cakewalk, tomorrow might prove to be a tight game if VT put's on they're A game. Canes over Hokies 32-13

I'm saying 38-24. Tech had trouble containing running games on and off through their last 4 games: Pitt ran roughshod with a running back who'd had yet to prove he was truly worthy of starting, WVU ran the whole game behind Cobourne and Wilson. McGahee has more raw talent and speed than the 3 of them combined. He'll have a big day.

Suggs and Jones may also have decent days, but it won't be enough, as Randall will just get eaten alive against the fastest defense he's seen.

Miami might have a letdown late, but it won't matter, because they'll be up 20+ by the end of the third.

Miami is vulnerable in the running game, which is VT's strength ... if their passing game makes plays, they have a chance. Unfortunately, Miami will win this one, I believe. I'll say 35-17.

I'm sorry, but the Canes don't lose in the Orange Bowl. They'll struggle a bit with the running gaem, especially if VT runs inside, but VT's young adn that'll show in a hostile Orange Bowl. Miami 38 VT 19.

I was happy with the victory but very, very disappointed they gave up 45 points

Yeah, something tells me a game with Ohio State will be much lower scoring...

I cetainly hope so, because with the type of offense that OSU has, we'd be hard pressed to give up big points

Clarret will run WILD on Miami. Mark my words. 230 yds plus.

ok, fair enough .. Clarett will have enough time to recover 100% or close to it .. He might even go for 200 plus yards and score a touchdown ... but what really matters is the 'W' for the final outcome of the game, which unfortunately is not at OSU's favor .. Not to worry please, we have someone named Willis MaGahee to counter Clarett's running attack ... So he won't be the only one running WILD on anyone

I think Miami will key on Mr. Clarett and make Krenzel throw the ball, that being said Miami should win the game.
