CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Rivalries do not always have to be heated. Just look at the way Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer reacted when Miami's saga with the NCAA ended a couple weeks ago.

Beamer sent Miami coach Al Golden a note lauding the way the Hurricanes handled themselves during the long investigation. Golden thought the move was very classy, especially coming from a school the Hurricanes seem to always be battling with for the top spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division.

The sides meet on Saturday, when No. 14 Miami (7-1, 3-1 ACC) puts its spot atop the Coastal on the line when it plays host to the Hokies (6-3, 3-2), who are on a two-game slide yet can still win the Coastal if they prevail in their final three games.
