Miami Defense Is Strong In The Redzone Against UVA

Miami takes down No. 20 Virginia

Miami takes down No. 20 Virginia

Miami running back DeeJay Dallas (13) runs past Virginia linebacker Charles Snowden to score a touchdown during the first half of an NCAA college football game, Friday, Oct. 11, 2019, in Miami Gardens, Fla.

And the Hurricanes might have saved their season.

That's because the former Bishop McDevitt and current Virginia standout cornerback went down with a lower leg injury in his team's 17-9 loss to Miami and had to be carted off.

"For him to do that, that just shows you don't always get what you want, but for him to battle like that I think its a great example for everyone in the football team", Diaz said of Perry. "When things are going poorly, our guys, they get back out there and they continue to fight again". Dallas finished with 13 carries for 63 yards to go with 2 catches for 14 yards and the TD. Pat Bethel blocked a field goal for Miami and K.J. Osborn caught four passes for 60 yards. Perry finished the game with 182 passing yards, completing 16 of 27 passing with two touchdowns.

"We talked about being persistent", Diaz said. The Cavaliers entered ranked, yet were still 2 1/2 point underdogs at kickoff.

Apparently, those oddsmakers saw this coming.

Brian Delaney made three field goals for the Cavaliers, who were looking for their first 3-0 ACC start since 2007. They're now tied with North Carolina for first place in the Coastal Division, and could be joined there by Duke if the Blue Devils beat Georgia Tech on Saturday. The Hurricanes red zone defense was elite. That's plain and simple. We had multiple drives to the red zone and not a single touchdown. So that's on us.

With the attack unit sputtering, it was the defense that continually rose up and kept Miami's head above water.

But the defense more than did its part.

"I came in a little nervous, but when you get on the field, you're thinking about the next play, so it all went away".

"Those two opportunities that we didn't capitalize on hurt our team", Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall said.

"What changed today is that the team that made the plays in the fourth quarter was the Miami Hurricanes", Diaz said. Davidson last kicked in a game November 11, 2016, making a field goal for San Antonio's Ronald Reagan High. Well, there seemed to be a different air about the Miami defense this week, as they played with a ton of aggression and passion to hold Perkins and his UVA offense out of the endzone on the night. Virginia hasn't had an appearance streak of six weeks or more since a 21-poll run spanning the 2004 and 2005 seasons. Late in the first quarter, there Virginia was with a fourth down at the Miami 24. In his first career game, Davidson converted all three of his kicks (2 XP's, 19-yard FG), putting to bed UM's kicking game concerns at least for one night.

Miami: Host Georgia Tech on October 19, ending a five-game homestand.
