The No. 8 Miami Hurricanes are coming home to Hard Rock Stadium for a prime-time clash against No. 13 Virginia Tech.

The Hurricanes, who defeated North Carolina 24-19 Saturday to remain undefeated and extend their Football Bowl Subdivision winning streak to a nation-leading 12 games, will be host to the Hokies at 8 p.m. Saturday on ABC.

The Hokies (7-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) defeated Duke 24-3 Saturday in Blacksburg, Virginia.

UM (7-0, 5-0) is one of only four Power 5 teams still undefeated. The others: Alabama, Georgia and Wisconsin.

With Georgia Tech’s loss to Clemson on Saturday, and Virginia’s loss to Pittsburgh, the only team still with one loss in UM’s Coastal Division is Virginia Tech.

Miami coach Mark Richt reflects on victory over UNC on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017.
