ATLANTA (AP) -- Jonathan Dwyer ran for 128 yards -- all in the first half -- and Georgia Tech shredded Miami's defense for 472 yards on the ground, ruining the No. 23 Hurricanes' return to the rankings with a 41-23 rout Thursday night.
Miami could have moved a step closer to clinching a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Instead, the Hurricanes (7-4, 4-3) were soundly beaten in their first game as a ranked team in more than two years.
Georgia Tech (8-3, 5-3) clinched at least a tie for first in Coastal Division, but the Yellow Jackets will need some help because three other contenders would win on a tiebreaker.
