Mario Cristobal was not pleased with Miami’s offensive output in the first half against Virginia on Saturday.

The Canes managed just three points, which they scored on the final play of the half. Miami gained just 151 total yards in the first half and picked up only 4.2 yards per play.

Cristobal addressed the offensive struggles with WQAM at halftime.

“We’ve got to get in rhythm on offense,” Cristobal said. “It starts with the run game. We’ve got to keep doing that. It’ll lead to a better passing game as well. We had a breakdown on a play that was destined for a big chunk down in the red zone and we missed a block.”

Miami has been dealing with injury issues along its offensive line, although it’s not clear who missed the block on the play Cristobal is referencing.

Miami’s offense has is also playing without quarterback Tyler Van Dyke as he nurses a shoulder injury. Jake Garcia got the start and was 10-of-16 for 90 yards in the first half.

Miami was a slight betting favorite in this game. It’s a must-win contest for the Canes as they cling to hope of bowl eligibility.
