With Miami coming off of their bye week a lot is at stake. They are currently in third place in the Coastal Division of the ACC. Although they are only a half game back of the two teams that are currently in front of them, Virginia Tech and Miami’s only defeat with in the ACC, Virginia.
A lot is still to be learned about this team. Are they really the team that you saw against teams like LSU and Virginia, or do they have the capability to be a powerhouse team. Kind of like the one that they looked like against Florida State and North Carolina. With Malik Rosier announced as the starting quarterback for the game against Boston College he too leaves the Canes with a lot of questions to be answered. Will he be able to throw the ball down the field and make the completions that for the majority of his career he hasn’t had the ability to make? Will he be able to do the little things that will put Miami over the top and allow them to win the remainder of their games?
For me the biggest question that Miami will have to answer over the next couple of weeks is “Will they even come out ready to play?” It would be easy for Miami to just fold and play with no energy. They could easily drop the next couple of games that they play. With the odds completely against them in making the College Football Playoff what is there left for them to play for. I hope that the U decides to salvage their season and make it back to the ACC Championship, but these will all be questions that get answered over the next few weeks.
With all that being said, I have no clue how to call this game. No clue what Miami team will show up and if they will even play to their capabilities or if they will drop another game as they did last week. My gut tells me that Miami will play slow. Even so I would expect them to come out on top of a low scoring affair. I’d expect a rush touchdown or two from the Canes, along with one through the air as well.
