Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente has the perfect person on staff to give a history lesson about the VT-West Virginia rivalry before their season opener. So he asked defensive coordinator Bud Foster to deliver the message. The two teams last played in 2005, and Foster coached in the last 19 games in the series. "I've always had the utmost respect for West Virginia and that goes back to playing coach (Don) Nehlen," Foster told "It was always a tough, hard fought football game, a lot of close battles and a lot of great players, too. We have to make sure our kids understand what that is all about."

Miami coach Mark Richt told reporters in South Florida why Malik Rosier got the nod as the starting QB over Evan Shirreffs, N'Kosi Perry and Cade Weldon: "He did stand out above the rest. It wasn't an unbelievable amount, but it was apparent that he was having the best camp. Evan did extremely well. I felt like there was enough of a difference to feel comfortable that Malik is the guy. The young guys…they got to know what to do and own it for a while before they can really compete at a high level at that position.”
