The ‘Canes can finish the season strong

Miami enters the final regular season game on a three game winning streak

NCAA Football: Miami at North Carolina State Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

Well, Mark Richt’s first season at the helm for Miami is coming to an end. Saturday’s game against Duke could give the ‘Canes their second four game winning streak of the season, but more importantly, it allows Miami the opportunity to finish the season strong.

Miami has definitely had their issues this season, but they have been able to recover after dropping four straight. The same can not be said for Duke, which will finish the season under .500 for the first time since 2012.

Duke is the worst scoring team in the Coastal Division of the ACC, averaging 23.7 points a game. On the other hand, Miami a team that has had its offensive struggles is averaging 34.1 points a game.

The Blue Devils’ defense is not much better than the offense, allowing 227 points this season, while Miami has only given up 153 points.

Miami is heavily favorited to win this game, but it was just last season when Miami won the game with this play. Have you seen it?
