Newly named starting quarterback N’Kosi Perry ready to dive into Miami-FSU rivalry - Sun Sentinel

“He handled his first start about as well as both he and Richt could have hoped and now, Perry finds himself ready to step onto one of the biggest stages in college football: the latest installment of the storied rivalry between the Miami Hurricanes and the Florida State Seminoles.”

Here’s what UM has in mind with its injured star receiver - Miami Herald

“Junior receiver Ahmmon Richards, who has missed four consecutive games with a bone bruise on a knee, remains sidelined indefinitely and coach Mark Richt said Tuesday there’s a chance he could redshirt.

Because the NCAA is now permitting players to play four games and still redshirt, it’s possible Richards could play in the regular season finale, the ACC Championship game (if UM gets there) and a bowl game and still redshirt.”

Teams Set to Rise

Miami Hurricanes

Miami took a drastic tumble when it lost to LSU on a Sunday night to start the season, going from No. 8 down to No. 22. The Hurricanes have been making a steady rise since and should continue their ascent. Right now they sit at No. 17 in the current AP poll. While they do have some road games that will test them, with quarterback N’kosi Perry, they figure to be favored in all their remaining games. If they take care of business, the Hurricanes will be ranked high enough that a win over Clemson in the ACC title game would likely put them into the College Football Playoff.”

ACC Power Rankings: Week 6 - State of the U

“2. Miami Hurricanes 4-1 (LW: 2), Week 5 Result: 47-10 W vs North Carolina, Next: vs Florida State 10/6 3:30pm ET

The Turnover Chain was taken out of the box 6 times last Thursday night, 3 of those times resulted in touchdowns. That level of production is obviously unsustainable, but a defense that dominant is why the Canes can still have conference championship aspirations. Next up, some school from Tallahassee.”
