4-3, 5th in ACC - Coastal

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Miami gave up eight sacks last week in a loss to Virginia Tech, while Notre Dame has struggled to get after the passer (six sacks in seven games). Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said he is not reading too much into the Hurricanes' performance last week as an indicator his team might get more sacks Saturday. "Virginia Tech can be an avalanche," Kelly said. "Bud Foster does a great job of doing that against everybody. He's been doing that for 30 years."
