1Q update: Miami 7, Virginia Tech 0

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Virginia Tech has used all three quarterbacks (well, two and their tight end), but Miami has only needed one. Robert Marve, save for his one fumble that didn't cost the Canes, hasn't made many mistakes and has gotten his team out of jams with his ability to escape and has thrown the ball away instead of costing his team yards.

The Canes are giving the Hokies a dose of their own medicine here in Dolphin Stadium, and if Miami's receivers would be able to hold onto the ball, the offense would be twice as effective. Marve is giving them catchable balls and Patrick Nix isn't afraid to throw it downfield.

Virginia Tech used Sean Glennon, Tyrod Taylor and tight end Greg Boone on their final possession and it hasn't flustered Miami. This is one of those times when it can't hurt to have a former defensive coordinator as your head coach.
