Jared Wickerham

Can the 'Canes finish the season at 9-3? Not yet mathematically eliminated from the ACC Coastal Division title, and looking to improve, UM battles the Panthers.


Miami leads 22-9-1 ... First series meeting since 2010 ... Miami has won last seven meetings (1998-2003; 2010) ... Miami is 12-5 at Pitt ... Miami’s longest win streak in series is eight.

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.
