HERE’S THE KICKER

What an addition graduate P Pat O’Donnell has been to the Miami Hurricanes in 2013. O’Donnell, who was a two-time All-BIG EAST punter at Cincinnati, ranks second nationally in punting with 47.6 yards per punt. O’Donnell leads the ACC by more than 3.0 yards per punt. Virginia Tech’s AJ Hughes is second behind O’Donnell with a 44.5 yards-per-punt average. 19 of O’Donnell’s 43 punts this season have gone for 50+ yards.
