Good Morning ’Canes Fam! It definitely feels great to be a Hurricane. The only thing that may be better is keeping up news from around The U! Lucky for you, State of the U has you covered on that front. Here are your news and notes for November 2nd, 2017.
The Push to the Playoff
The question that UM fans are asking today is where will the College Football Playoff Committee put the Hurricanes after beating down Notre Dame 41–8 last weekend. You can catch the live College Football Playoff: Top 25 show on ESPN at 7PM EDT. Better yet, you can catch the break down on State of the U as soon as the rankings are released.
