Earlier this week, it looked as though Miami might be missing the team's top two rushers for Saturday's crucial division matchup with Georgia Tech.  Hurricanes fans got good news on Wednesday, with both Damien Berry and Lamar Miller back fully participating in practice.  Miller sat out Tuesday with a stomach virus, and Berry hasn't practiced since injuring his leg against Virginia on October 30.  

"To me, he looked like he's 100 percent, like he's ready to go this week," Miller said of Berry after practice.

The news of getting more than half of the season rushing production back on the field for Saturday gives the Hurricanes offense a lift heading into Atlanta.  The thought of entering the game without Berry, Miller, or starting quarterback Jacory Harris made Miami's ACC Championship Game chances look bleak.  A Miami loss with a Virginia Tech win would eliminate the Hurricanes from contention for the ACC Coastal Division title.  Miami needs to stay alive in the hunt until November 20, when the Hokies visit Coral Gables.  

Even if the the Hurricanes do defeat Virginia Tech, they will still need some help from North Carolina or Virginia in order to win the division in a tie-breaker, not to mention taking care of business this week against the Yellow Jackets.  With Stephen Morris under center for his second career start, first on the road, getting Berry and Miller back in the lineup will ease the pressure on the true freshman.

GA tech had there best team last year and Miami drubbed them so I expect the most talented team will win and the hurricanes have the most talent.
