It could be a real (cliche alert) barn-burner Thursday night at Land Shark Stadium when the Jackets take on the Hurricanes.
Because these two teams make big plays and a lot of them. Granted, the season is young.
But Miami quarterback Jacory Harris had nine pass plays of at least 20 yards in their win against Florida State. Nine.
In comparison, Josh Nesbitt hit his ninth play (running or passing), in the third quarter of the Virginia Tech game last season.
That in no way means Harris is better than Nesbitt. Different quarterbacks. Different systems. Different expectations. Different everything.
It’s just used to illustrate the big-play potential that Harris possesses.
Now, Tech knows a thing or two about big plays, having scored six touchdowns using them this season (and others that didn’t lead to TDs), and having made 67 of them last year.
So, it would be easy to say the team that makes the most big plays will win the game.
I’m not sure if it’ll be that
