Miami vs Virginia Prediction Week 5

The Miami offense has the potential for its best game of the season against an FBS opponent. For as good as the Virginia offense has been, the Cavaliers defense has struggled the last two weeks. After allowing 260 yards per game and 14 points total in their season-opening wins Virginia’s defense has been lit up the last two weeks.

North Carolina had 699 total yards, including 392 rushing in their 59-39 victory over Virginia on September 18. Virginia played much better defensively allowing 473 total yards in a 37-17 loss to Wake Forest on Friday. Miami will get running back Jaylan Knighton back against Virginia after a four-game suspension.

The 19-14 victory by Miami was the most points the two teams combined for in their last three meetings. Miami won 17-9 in 2019 and Virginia 16-13 in 2018. The Hurricanes won a high-scoring game against Virginia with a 44-28 victory in 2017. Based on how the Virginia defense has played the game should go over.

Miami has also struggled defensively this season against Alabama and Michigan State. Throwing out the game against Central Connecticut State last week, Miami played well defensively in the victory over Appalachian State two weeks ago. Miami is in a better place than Virginia and should cover the four-point spread.
