November 14, 2008|associated press

Javarris James ran for a touchdown, Matt Bosher kicked three field goals, and Miami got a huge defensive stand in the final minutes to beat Virginia Tech, 16-14, on Thursday night at Miami and move into first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division.

Marcus Robinson had three sacks and a big third-down tackle for a loss with 2:27 left to help the Hurricanes win their fifth straight game.

Robinson's stop on Dustin Pickle forced the Hokies into a fourth and three, and Allen Bailey sacked Tyrod Taylor to seal the win for the Hurricanes, who knelt three times to run out the clock.

Taylor ran for two touchdowns, including a six-yarder with 3:28 remaining for the Hokies (6-4, 3-3), who had won four of the last five meetings against the Hurricanes (7-3, 4-2), but now essentially need a miracle to stay in the ACC title picture.

Etc.

A.J. Principe kicked a 40-yard field goal, his second in overtime, to give Buffalo a 43-40 win over Akron in a game that lasted four overtimes and more than four hours at Akron, Ohio. Buffalo improved to 6-4, 4-2 in the Mid-American Conference, and Akron fell to 5-5, 3-3. . . . West Virginia players Maxwell Anderson, a tight end, and Jeremy Kash, a holder, have been charged with battery stemming from a fight at a Morgantown bar in October. Coach Bill Stewart said he had not made a decision about disciplinary action.
