Oct. 16, 2011

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — The University of Miami (3-3 overall, 1-2 ACC) will begin a three-game conference home stand with Georgia Tech at 3:30 p.m. Eastern on Saturday. The game will be aired to a national audience by ESPN and ESPN HD.

The Yellow Jackets were ranked No. 12 last week before suffering a 24-21 defeat on the road at Virginia. On the season, Georgia Tech is 6-1 overall and 3-1 in ACC play. They are led by a high-powered rushing offense and a revitalized pass defense.

UM is coming off a huge win at North Carolina. The Canes held off the Tar Heels for a 30-24 win behind a dazzling performance by senior Jacory Harris. Harris had 200-plus passing yards and three touchdowns passes in the first half alone.

After Georgia Tech, UM will host Virginia on ESPN’s Thursday night football on Oct. 27. Kickoff is already set for 8 p.m. on ESPN, ESPN HD and ESPN 3D.
