Hurricanes grind it out, narrowly escape Virginia in 19-14 win

All season long, Miami head coach Manny Diaz has preached how hard it is to win a football game. And tonight’s win over Virginia proved exactly that.

The Miami Hurricanes opened the game in possibly the most dominant fashion: two passes, one touchdown.

But after that first drive, the Hurricanes struggled to get first downs and convert in the red zone, yet they still managed to grind out a 19-14 win over Virginia, last year’s ACC Atlantic Division champion.

“Virginia was making it tough, but we weren’t getting points in the red zone. That’s Miami – Virginia.
