ACC Football Roundup

Associated Press
The ACC roundup …
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. ó Ryan Williams ran for 182 yards and four touchdowns and Virginia Tech beat Virginia in what was likely Al Groh’s last game as Cavaliers coach.
The Hokies (9-3, 6-2 ACC) won their sixth straight in the series and for the 10th time 11 meetings with the Cavaliers (3-9, 2-6). It was their eighth victory in nine games against Groh, and ended Virginia’s worst season since it finished 2-9 in 1982.
Groh, who has a contract clause requiring that the school inform him by Nov. 30 if it plans to add a year, is expected to instead be fired. Virginia has had three losing seasons in the last four and its average attendance has fallen by nearly 14,000 in two years.
Miami 31, S. Fla. 10
TAMPA, Fla. ó Javarris James rushed for two touchdowns, Jacory Harris threw for two more, and Miami took a big early lead on the way to beating South Florida.
Dedrick Epps and Leonard Hankerson caught touchdown passes for Miami (9-3), which ran out to a 21-3 halftime lead and capped its first nine-win regular season since 2005. A bowl victory would give Miami its first 10-win season since 2003.
Damien Berry rushed for 114 yards and Graig Cooper added 83 more for Miami, which played without ill left tackle Jason Fox and still rolled.
BC 19, Maryland 17
COLLEGE PARK, Md. ó Montel Harris ran for 142 yards, Dave Shinskie threw a 66-yard touchdown pass, and Boston College beat Maryland 19-17 Saturday to seal the Terrapins’ first 10-loss season.
The Terrapins (2-10, 1-7) finished with seven straight losses and a school-record 10 defeats. The skid has raised questions about the job security of coach Ralph Friedgen.
