MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Trey Edmunds ran for four touchdowns, the first three of them set up by Miami special-teams miscues, and Virginia Tech knocked off the 14th-ranked Hurricanes 42-24 on Saturday night.

Edmunds had scoring runs of 10, 2, 4 and 1 yards for the Hokies (7-3, 4-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). Logan Thomas completed 25 of 31 passes for 366 yards, giving him consecutive games of 300 yards or more for the first time in his Virginia Tech career.

Stephen Morris completed 16 of 29 passes for 324 yards for Miami (7-2, 3-2), which lost its second straight. Morris had an 81-yard touchdown pass to Stacy Coley and an 84-yarder to Allen Hurns, but the Hurricanes were still outgained 549-352.

Virginia Tech held Miami to 28 rushing yards. The Hokies had 26 first downs to Miami's 12.

The win turns the ACC's Coastal Division into a muddled mess.
