The Hurricanes have lost by a cumulative 25 points during its three-game losing streak. Virginia Tech has lost its three games by a cumulative 70 points.

Miami has won four of the last five games against Virginia Tech. The Hurricanes are hoping to avoid a third straight outright loss as a favorite. Miami is favored by seven points with the game having an over/under of 47.5 points per Fan Duel. The Hurricanes need to be focused and not underestimate the Hokies.

After losing to North Carolina last week every game for Miami is important for the rest of the season for a chance to win the ACC Coastal division. Virginia Tech enters Saturday 2-4 overall and 1-2 in the ACC.

The Miami football team suffered some injuries last week that caused players to miss the remaider of the game versus North Carolina. Left tackle Zion Nelson has been limited this season and could be a gametime decision versus Virginia Tech. The depth chart for Miami should shuffle with various injuries.

Clark and Stevenson being off the injured list should be a huge boost for Miami. Logan Sagapolu is expected to start if Nelson and Oluwaseun are out. Freshman Anez Cooper could also contribute on the offensive line versus Virginia Tech. Miami is starting to get thin at several positions less than halfway through the season.

"Virginia Tech injury reportJohnny Garrett, OL, Undisclosed, Ques Sat (10/10/2022)Garrett has missed the previous four contests due to an unknown ailment, and it remains to be seen if he will be active against Miami on Saturday.Benji Gosnell, TEKnee, out for season(08/25/2022)Gosnell will miss the 2022 season due to a knee injury.Stephen Gosnell, WR, Undisclosed, Ques Sat (10/12/2022)Gosnell sat out the last game due to an undefined issue, and it is up in the air if he will dress for Saturday’s clash against Miami.Dorian Strong, DB, Hand, Ques Sat (10/10/2022)Strong has missed the past two games with a hand injury, and it is unclear if he will suit up Saturday versus Miami.Dallan Wright, WR, Undisclosed, out for season (08/18/2022)Wright will sit out the 2022 season after having season-ending surgery to an unlisted location.Injury reports courtesy of USA Today"

Strong is the biggest injury for Virginia Tech if he doesn’t play. Virginia Tech has depth at CB, but Strong is a starter when he is healthy. Stephen Gosnell has nine receptions for 124 yards this season. The other players on the Virginia Tech injury list have not made an impact for the Hokies.
