MIAMI 24, VIRGNIA 17 OT

Jacory Harris threw a tying touchdown pass in the final minute and another one in overtime to give Miami a 24-17 win over Virginia on Saturday that put the Hurricanes into the race for the ACC title game.

When Virginia tailback Cedric Peerman was stripped of the ball on the Cavaliers' first play of overtime, the Canes (6-3, 3-2 ACC) had their fourth victory in a row, and were tied for second in the Coastal Division after Georgia Tech beat Florida State later.

Virginia (5-4, 3-2) had its four-game winning streak end, and in heartbreaking fashion, too, after shutting down the ACC's best scoring offense until the very end.

The Hoos failed to capitalize on two Miami turnovers and missed three field goals.
