Another week, another game for the Miami Hurricanes.
After a 6-week/5-game mid-season homestand at the cozy confines of Hard Rock Stadium, the Canes hit the road to face off against the Pittsburgh Panthers on Saturday afternoon. Pitt is a tough team who has made a living by ruining seasons for top-ranked teams. And, that includes the 2017 Canes, who were 10-0 and ranked #2 nationally before losing @ Pitt the day after Thanksgiving. That loss started a slide that Miami has yet to recover from. So, that’s fun.
For Miami, the Canes are still mired in a slog. Head coach Manny Diaz keeps talking about “resetting the culture” in Miami, but I’d personally prefer wins to tales of how this team “competes hard” while continuing to lose to teams with inferior talent. But hey, maybe that’s just me. ANYWHO....
Here’s all your information for Saturday’s game:
Miami Hurricanes (3-4, 1-3 ACC) vs Pittsburgh Panthers (5-2, 2-1 ACC)
Kickoff time: 12:00 Noon Eastern
Online Stream: WatchESPN/ESPN3
Odds: Opened: Pitt -2, O/U 46; as of Wednesday night: Pitt -6, O/U 44 (43.5 in some places)
The Canes are on the road, so expect white jerseys over orange pants for the uniform combination.
That’s the deal. See you guys at noon eastern on Saturday.
