It's not how you start, it's how you finish, right?
Miami should certainly hope so, because the Canes were able to rebound from a dreadful start to win convincingly today. All five of Miami's scoring drives took took under two minutes, but the Canes couldn't have started out slower and trailed 7-0 in the first quarter. The Canes were outgained, gave up more first downs, and were helped by Bethune-Cookman's 11 penalties and two turnovers.
It was good enough to win today. But it won't be at Virginia Tech next week.
