Pithy Comments

- Miami returns the favor Georgia Tech handed them last year on Thursday night by winning in Miami thanks to a big game from Graig Cooper.
- The Hokies get a big non-conference win over the Huskers. It follows the script from last season with the Hokies building a big lead early and fending off a feisty Nebraska squad at the end.
- Florida State has trouble moving the ball in the thin air of Provo, but is able to get enough pressure on Max Hall to beat the Cougars.
