After three comfortable, double-digit victories, things begin to get serious for Miami as the calendar turns to October. Derek Rivers Youth Jersey .The 14th-ranked Hurricanes start the month by playing Georgia Tech Saturday in their ACC opener. Kickoff is set for noon ET at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta.Both teams will have had extra rest when they meet with the Hurricanes (3-0) coming off a bye week and the Yellow Jackets having played on Thursday night last week. The Jackets lost that game 26-7 to Clemson to fall to 3-1 overall and 1-1 in the conference.Often, the extra time Miami has had to prepare is viewed as a bonus for Techs opponents, who can use the time to tune up for the Yellow Jackets triple-option, ground-oriented offense.But though the Jackets are averaging an impressive 216 yards per game rushing for the season, this doesnt look to be the business-as-usual Tech attack under coach Paul Johnson.A huge chunk of that rushing yardage came against Mercer in the second week of the season when the Jackets rushed for 364 yards against the FCS foe. They added 289 against SEC bottom dweller Vanderbilt the next week.Against Boston College, they had only 119 yards rushing and then last week were held to just 95 in the loss to Clemson.Still, Miami coach Mark Richt is respectful of the Yellow Jackets ground game, no doubt in part because he saw it first-hand every year during his 15-year run at Georgia.Clemson obviously did a very good job and got their numbers down, Richt said of the Jackets rushing. But thats a rarity.It was only the fourth time under Johnson, who took over in 2008, that Tech has failed to get at least 100 yards on the ground, and was its lowest rushing total since the last time the Jackets played Clemson and managed only 71 yards on the ground last Oct. 10.The Jackets had just 22 yards of total offense against Clemson in the first half, which ended with the Tigers leading 23-0. To their credit, the Jackets never quit and held the visiting Tigers to a field goal over the final two quarters.Well, clearly Thursday night last week didnt go as we would have hoped, Johnson said. I think Clemson has a really good football team, and you couple that with the fact we played about as poorly as you could play, especially offensively, you are not going to get the results you would like to have.The good news is you get to play again in this sport. You get to move onto the next game and we have another game on Saturday against another undefeated and nationally ranked team. We have a chance to see if we can come out and play better than we did on Thursday night.True freshman B-back Dedrick Mills ended up as Techs leading rusher with a career-high 75 rushing yards and a touchdown. In just three games, he has scored five touchdowns to tie for fourth in the ACC in the category.Miami has had a relatively light month to start the season with big wins over Florida A&M (70-3), Florida Atlantic (38-10), and Appalachian State (45-10).Sophomore running back Mark Walton has spearheaded an offense that has produced 816 yards rushing, but he is far from a one-man show. He has rushed for 401 yards in averaging 8.1 per carry, but junior Joe Yearby is right behind with 256 and a 7.3 average. Together they have rushed for 11 touchdowns.Junior quarterback Brad Kaaya has thrown three interceptions over the last two games and struggled trying to get comfortable against Florida Atlantic. But he was sharp in the win over Appalachian State, completing 21 of 27 attempts for 368 yards and three touchdowns.Thats a good sign for Miami with what is coming up.After the trip to Atlanta, the Hurricanes host Florida State on Oct. 8 and are home again to take on North Carolina on Oct. 15. They have a quick turnaround with a Thursday night date at Virginia Tech on Oct. 20, then finish the month with a trip north to Notre Dame on Oct. 29.Tech, which needs a win to avoid falling to 1-2 in conference play, is at Pittsburgh next for its first true road game. The Jackets opened the season against Boston College in Australia and have been home for their last three games. Antonio Garcia Youth Jersey . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. Antonio Garcia Patriots Jersey . The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. http:///...ers-patriots-jersey/ . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.The Rugby Football Leagues independent disciplinary panel has charged Wakefield forward Tinirau Arona with making dangerous contact on St Helens winger Adam Swift. Swift was carried from the field on a stretcher following Aronas tackle during the Wildcats 44-4 Super League defeat at Langtree Park last Friday.The incident happened just six minutes into the game and St Helens announced that Swift had suffered a lower leg injury and would be seeing a surgeon on Monday evening. Saints coach Keiron Cunningham said there were no further updates on the injury at this time but added: It is not short term.Arona is facing a grade B charge, which carries a ban of one or two matches, although the RFL panel went outside the normal tariff earlier this year in handing Hull KR hooker John Boudebza a four-match ban for what appears to be a similar offence on Castleford centre Michael Shenton.In coming to their decision on Arona, the RFLs match-review panel applied the following rule: Dangerous contact - defender uses any part of his body forcefully to twist, bend or otherwise apply pressure to the limb or liimbs of an opposing player in a way that involves an unacceptable risk of injury to that player. Derek Rivers Patriots Jersey. Adam Swift (with ball) faces a spell on the sidelines Arona is not eligible for an early-guilty plea, having submitted one a week ago to answer a grade A charge, and will face a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday.Wakefields Jason Walton is also facing a grade B offence of making a dangerous throw from the same game on St Helens captain Jon Wilkin.Meanwhile, Hull KR full-back Ben Cockayne has been charged with a grade A offence of making dangerous contact on Huddersfield centre Jake Connor during his sides 38-6 defeat by the Giants on Sunday.
