Miami-Florida at Virginia (ESPN2, 7:00 p.m.)
Miami arrives with a lot of confidence after erasing a 27-7 deficit at home last week against Florida State to pick up a one-point win against their rivals. Now, will there be any kind of hangover? The Hurricanes have held steady as a favorite in the neighborhood of 6 to 6 1/2 points this week. However, Miami is just 3-7 ATS in their past 10 overall, 1-4 ATS in their past five ACC games and 1-4 ATS in the past five road games while going 1-5 ATS in the past six against winning teams.

Now, they look to take out their anger on the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill, a team which has won just once in four tries overall this season. Virginia Tech is 2-9 ATS in the past 11 road games against teams with a losing home record, while UNC is 21-7 ATS in the past 28 at home against teams with a winning road record. The Tar Heels are an impressive 4-1 ATS in the past five ACC games, too, while going 5-2-1 ATS in the past eight overall. Va.
