The weather perfectly illustrated the kind of game the Miami Hurricanes had to play in order to beat the Virginia Cavaliers at Hard Rock Stadium Saturday night. On-and-off downpours complicated aspects of the matchup for both teams, with UM playing through the choppy conditions in a far-from-perfect performance.
But it was enough to be ahead 19-14 when the clock hit zero in front of the 9,940 fans present in Miami Gardens. Hit with adversity before the game even began, the Canes (5-1, 4-1 ACC) struggled in some phases of the contest while excelling in others. Miami will get back to the drawing board with another win behind them as they head into the second half of the 2020 season.
