Hello again, Canes fans. We’re back for another GameThread as we continue the Miami Hurricanes 2019 football season. Today, the Miami Hurricanes conclude their mid-season homestand with a key ACC Coastal Division game against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
Here’s How To Watch by Cam Underwood
With Jarren Williams still hurt (shoulder), N’Kosi Perry is starting again. This is just me talking, but a strong game here and I think Perry will have a legit claim to the QB1 job moving forward.

A noon game on the ACC network against a 1-5 team coming off a season-saving win against a ranked team is the perfect scenario for a letdown. But, I hope what we saw from Miami last week was the beginning of a resurgence for the Canes, and they use the momentum of that big win to flex on Georgia Tech, separate from an inferior team on the scoreboard early, and earn a relatively easy win.
Whichever way it goes, there will be plenty to discuss. So, hop in the comments and discuss away!
