Ryan Moore has 18 catches for 240 yards and three touchdowns this season.
He is ready for a big game Saturday at #3 Virginia Tech (8-0).
"I love Blacksburg," Moore said. "A lot of guys don't like going there, but I love it."
The last time Moore was in Blacksburg he recorded a career-high 101 receiving yards with seven catches in the 31-7 defeat.
Moore understands the pressure of the big game and looks forwad to the challenge of carrying the offense.
"It's pressure," Moore said. "Like coach said, there are two ways pressure can go. You can apply it or you can receive it."
The Virginia Tech defense is second in the nation allowing 139 passing yards per game. Their secondary is led by Jimmy Williams and Justin Hamilton.
"They (Virginia Tech secondary) really aren't anything different," Moore said. "It is just the hype and what everyone is saying. They aren't better than anyone we got. It will be a challenge for us, but we are just going to play like we have been playing."
During the week of practices the Hurricanes have put in a new wrinkle to their offense hoping to give Virginia Tech a different look on Saturday.
"We are trying our best in practice," Moore said. "We are treating it like a regular game. We are continuing to work hard and continuing to improve."
Virginia Tech won the 2004 contest, 16-10, in the final regular season game with the ACC title on the line. The Hokies have also won seven of the last 10 games against Miami.
"I just remember that they don't make too many mistakes," Moore said. "We feel we are more talented than them but we have made mistakes. We feel like if we don't make those mistakes, we will win the game."
When asked if he looks forward to the game and making a bigger name for himself on the national level, he responded,
"Oh of course."
