The Florida State Seminoles can seal up a berth in the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship game Thursday night if they can pull out a road win against the Virginia Tech Hokies.
Since the day he took over at Miami, Al Golden has said the path for the Hurricanes to get back into the national picture starts with winning the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division. The Hurricanes now control the path to that title.
There’s no arguing Virginia Tech has momentum on its side entering Saturday’s ACC championship. The fifth-ranked Hokies (11-1) have won seven straight while Clemson has lost three of four, including a bitter 34-13 setback against in-state rival South Carolina last week.
With under 3 minutes to play and his team suddenly trailing for the first time all game, Logan Thomas knew he had to come through.
The University of Miami faces a unknown future, but head coach Al Golden is getting support from many of his fellow coaches in the Atlantic Coast Conference, including one of Miami’s biggest rivals.
