Recap |  Final Stats

Virginia Head Coach Al Groh:

On his team's effort:

I'm proud to be associated with this (Virginia) football come off of last week's game and to come in this team who over the last twenty-five years has historically been in the top five and just seven days ago was one of the top three teams in the country and fight it out the way that they did.

We played well, but we didn't play well enough to win. Had we not made a few errors along the way we would have been good enough.

On stopping the Hurricane offense:

They're dedicated to running the ball and we tried to be dedicated in stopping the run. Overall, we did a good job.

On the impetus for calling Byers end-around touchdown pass play:

We didn't see anything in the Miami defense, we were just determined to use all the ammo that we had and use it (the play) when the situation arose.

Emmanuel Byers:

On his teams's approach to playing the Hurricanes:

This is ACC football, Division I football. Anything can happen in any given week. We just wanted to come out and play a good game. I think we played the (heck) out of the game.
