No. 10 Louisville earns ACC title shot
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Jack Plummer threw three touchdown passes, the last of which was a 58-yarder to Kevin Coleman with 4:17 left, and No. 10 Louisville clinched a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game by beating Miami 38-31 on Saturday.
Coleman finished wide open after Miami defenders Te’Cory Couch and Jaden Davis collided at full speed as the play unfolded, and went down the right sideline for the opening score for the Cardinals (10-1, 7-1 ACC ).
Louisville made the ACC championship game for the first time in 10 years in the league and will play Florida State in Charlotte on Dec. 2 for the title.
Miami had 4th and goal from the Louisville 3 with 1:29 left, but Tyler Van Dyke’s pass sailed just out of reach of Jacolby George in the end zone. The Raiders had one last chance and Van Dyke’s deep pass was batted around and caught by Xavier Restrepo at the 5-yard line, but was tackled with no time left.
