The series between the 'Canes and Hokies was one-sided until 1995 when Virginia Tech took their first game against Miami 13–7 in Blacksburg. Since 1994, the series has been 13–6 in favor of Virginia Tech. There have been several notable games in this time, including 11 meetings in which both teams were ranked in the top 25 and four meetings where both teams were part of the national top 10. In 2000, No. 2 Virginia Tech lost to No. 3 Miami at the Orange Bowl 41–21. In 2003, No. 2 Miami had a regular season winning streak snapped by the Hokies in Lane Stadium. In 2004, the first year for both schools in the ACC, both teams met in Miami at the Orange Bowl stadium for the final game of the regular season, which turned out to be a de facto ACC Championship game, with the winner getting a berth in a Bowl Championship Series bowl game. The No. 10 Hokies defeated the No. 9 Hurricanes 16–10. In 2005, No. 5 Miami beat No. 3 Virginia Tech in Blacksburg 27–7.
