The Miami Hurricanes will have to wait another week to even possibly have a chance to win the Coastal Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The University of Virginia scored with 1:21 left against Georgia Tech on Saturday evening to win 40-36 and ruin UM’s hopes of being able to beat Virginia Tech and clinch the Coastal at the same time.
More news: the University of Miami announced Saturday night that next Saturday’s Notre Dame at Miami game will kick off at 8 p.m. and again be broadcast on ABC.
The No. 9 Hurricanes were 7-0 and 5-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference before the kickoff against Virginia Tech at Hard Rock Stadium.
Never miss a local story.
No. 13 Virginia Tech was 7-1 and 3-1 before Saturday’s kickoff.
The winner of the Coastal Division will meet the winner of the Atlantic Division in the ACC Championship Game on Dec. 2 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Notre Dame (8-1), which defeated Wake Forest 48-37 Saturday, is an independent. But UM can win the Coastal next Saturday if the Canes beat Virginia Tech Saturday night and Virginia loses at Louisville next week.
