The American college football rivalry between the Miami Hurricanes football team of the University of Miami and Virginia Tech Hokies football team of Virginia Tech is a longstanding one that developed when the Hokies became a member of the Big East Conference for football in 1995. The Hurricanes and Hokies football teams first met on November 13, 1953 in Miami. Miami and Virginia Tech have met in two bowl games, the 1966 Liberty Bowl and the 1980 Peach Bowl. When the ACC expanded in 2004, both Miami and Virginia Tech became members of the ACC. Both teams continue to compete annually as part of the ACC's Coastal Division.
Taking a pre-emptive look at Saturday’s game, Virginia Tech has a 6-4 advantage over Miami since joining the ACC and is 12-6 since notching its first-ever series win back in 1995. The Hurricanes won last year's Thursday night showdown at Sun Life Stadium, 30-12, but prior to that had dropped 5-of-6 to the Hokies. Atlantic Coast Conference realignment—the addition of Syracuse and Pittsburgh—resulted in a second straight match-up between Miami and Virginia Tech in South Florida, an obvious break for the Hurricanes. Miami (7-1) enters this week's contest coming off a 41-14 loss to Florida State in Tallahassee. Virginia Tech (6-3) has dropped two straight, falling to Boston College and Duke back-to-back-weeks.
