The ACC opener for the Canes comes in primetime
Welcome back to another Miami Hurricanes game week! TOMORROW, yes, Thursday this week, the 2-2 Canes look to start their ACC season with a win against a division foe that’s routinely been a thorn in their sides: the Virginia Cavaliers.
Here’s all your information for THURSDAY’S game:
Miami Hurricanes (2-2, 0-0 ACC) vs Virginia Cavaliers (2-2, 0-2 ACC)
Kickoff time: 7:30pm Eastern
Online Stream: ESPN3
Odds: Opened: Canes -5, O/U 65.5; as of 6:30pm Wednesday Canes -6, O/U 62.5
This is a big game for Miami. Through the middling start, Manny Diaz has preached that “every goal this team has is in front of them.” Primary on that list is an ACC Coastal Division Championship. With a win, Miami gets started on the good foot. AND, for good measure, beating Virginia would drop the Cavs to 0-3 in the league, and all but eliminate them from title contention 3 games into the ACC season.
A loss for Miami, however, and the already-loud volume surrounding the program, along with the temperature on Manny Diaz’s coaching set will get turned up to levels previously unseen.
