The Miami football team will host Virginia at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday before entering their second and final bye week of the season.

The Miami football team hosts Virginia on Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium with a 4-1 record. The Cavaliers enter Saturday’s game 1-3. Virginia began the 2020 season with a victory over Duke and travel to Hard Rock Stadium with a three-game losing streak. The Cavaliers have since lost to North Carolina State, Wake Forest and Clemson.

The Miami football team is coming off of a 31-19 victory over Pittsburgh last week and is 4-1. The Hurricanes defense was stout in the red zone against the Panthers allowing one touchdown and four field goals in five trips. Virginia has lost its last three games by at least 17 points. Miami is favored by at least 12.5 points.

The biggest story for Virginia on Saturday is their uncertainty at quarterback. Starter Brennan Armstrong was knocked out two weeks ago with a concussion against North Carolina State and did not play last week against Wake Forest. The Cavaliers rotated Lindell Strong, Keytaon Thompson and Ira Armstead at QB.

Strong is the best passer of the three. Thompson and Armstead provide Virginia with more of a presence running the football. Cavaliers head coach Bronco Mendenhall stated earlier this week he wasn’t sure who would start on Saturday. Virginia leads the ACC with 49.5 passing attempts per game.

Miami enters Saturday’s game against Virginia with wins against the Cavaliers in four of their last five meetings. Virginia won four of the previous five against Miami. Miami won 17-9 last season at Hard Rock Stadium. In a quirk in the revised 2020 schedule, the Cavaliers are returning to Miami this season.

Miami has defeated Virginia the last four times the teams have played at Hard Rock Stadium. The Hurricanes will return to primetime for the fifth time in six games this season after a noon kickoff against Pittsburgh last week. Miami and Virginia are set for 8 PM on the ACC Network. Eighty percent of South Florida does not receive ACCN.
