BLACKSBURG, Va. — Tailback Ryan Williams' encore season at Virginia Tech hasn't gone the way he hoped because of a torn left hamstring that caused him to miss 4½ games.

He appears to be a 100 percent now, or at least close to it after a 142-yard day that included an 84-yard TD run at Miami.

The timing couldn't be better for Williams and the No. 13 Hokies, who close their regular season Saturday against rival Virginia — and then play for the ACC championship.

Williams says he is as close as he will get this season to being completely over the injury. He's also hoping a big finish will help clarify his NFL draft prospects.

The Hokies (9-2, 7-0 ACC) have won nine straight, and six in a row against Virginia.

The Cavaliers (4-7, 1-6) last won at Lane Stadium in 1998.
