Hokies Crush Miami in the Trenches and Continue Home Dominance

Saturday’s loss to Syracuse hurt, but Thursday night’s victory over Miami restored whatever confidence might have been lost in that bitter afternoon in the Carrier Dome.  The Hokies flattened Miami 37-16 and performed well in all three phases of the game.  All things considered, it might have been Tech’s best performance of the season.  That says a lot, because the Hokies have performed very well more times than not this year.

Let’s take a moment and pretend last week’s Syracuse game never happened.  In that scenario, here are Tech’s last four games…

BC: 49-0 W
ECU: 54-17 W
UNC: 34-3 W
Miami: 37-16 W
Total: 4-0, outscored opponents 174-36

When the Hokies are winning, they aren’t just winning…they are completely demolishing the opposition.  These games aren’t even close.  The ‘Canes made it interesting for awhile, but Tech eventually knocked them down and out and dominated the game statistically.
