The Miami Hurricanes will finally be back in the confines of Hard Rock Stadium this Saturday when they take on the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats. The Mid-Eastern Athletic team has achieved something the Canes have yet to grasp, a victory in 2019 . This will be a great opportunity for the Hurricanes to gain some momentum, continuity on both sides of the ball, and build confidence for next phase of the schedule. Here are 10 over and under picks to get you ready for the highly-anticipated home opener.

Jarren Williams: 300 Passing Yards & 3 TDs

Jarren Williams posted 214 yards passing against the Florida Gators and 309 yards against the North Carolina Tar Heels. Additionally to his yards progression, he also increased his TD total by 1 last week. In their blowout win against Jackson State, Bethune-Cookman surrendered 273 passing yards. Considering the drop in the defensive prowess that Williams will face this week, where do you project his night?

DeeJay Dallas 150 Rushing Yards and Cam’Ron Harris: 100 Rushing Yards

DeeJay Dallas cracked century mark (107 yards rushing) last week against UNC off of 14 attempts. He also continued his trend of explosive plays with a 37 yard run. Cam’Ron Harris quadrupled his run total from the Gators game in the matchup against UNC. He totaled 60 yards rushing. The number would’ve been substantially more if his longest didn’t get called back. Do you see this dynamic duo continuing its upswing?

Brevin Jordan: 100 Receiving Yards & 1 TD

Brevin Jordan had 6 catches for 73 yards last week. Averaging over 10 yards per catch (14.6) in 2019, the playmaking tight end poses a huge threat to even the best of defenses. With 88 yards in week 0, Jordan is consistently hovering around 100 yards. It’s inconceivable that he’ll be contained enough to lessen his output total over the last two games.

K.J. Osborn and Jeff Thomas 100 yards Receiving Yards & 1 TD

Three Hurricane receivers had over 50 yards in the loss to UNC. K.J. Osborn finished with 76 yards and 1 TD. Mark Harley surpassed Osborn’s yardage with 79 and Jeff Thomas finished with 51 yards. Judging both Thomas’ and Osborn’s 7 catch nights, there will be a continued and concerted effort to get the ball into these mismatches all night long.

Tate Martell: 1 TD

Last week I received a tweet stating I should’ve put Martell in to cause a riot. His addition this week isn’t one for sensationalization. It’s very likely that this game will have a wide margin of victory. At some point, we hope, the backups will be shuffled in and new package wrinkles will be displayed. It wouldn’t be shocking to see Martell get his highest volume of reps since switching to WR.

5 Defensive Sacks

Miami had four sacks on defense last week so congrats to the 25% of you that picked the even. Michael Pinckney, Trajan Bandy, Shaquille Quarterman, and Gregory Rousseau all go to the QB. Under the assumption that BCU will be down on the scoreboard and will need to pass, the bump up of one sack seems reasonable here.

Trajan Bandy: 1 INT

Trajan Bandy was the only Cane with a pass deflection last week. He’s a playmaker and is constantly around the ball. Turnovers through the air haven’t come in surplus so far in 2019. BCU quarterback Akevious Williams put the ball in the air more times (29 attempts) than Sam Howell (24 attempts) did in a 36-15 point drubbing of the Jackson State Tigers. When BCU is up in a game or down, they’ll continue to pass. Bandy will get his chances.

Special Teams: 1 TD

Last year, DeeJay Dallas returned a punt for 65 yards against the Pittsburg Panthers and Jeff Thomas took one to the house against Virginia Tech. Against a similar opponent to BCU in 2018, Savannah State, Thomas finished with a career-high 90 punt return yards. The dazzling talent we have in the return game has yet to show up on the scoreboard this year. This may be the game where it all comes together.

3 Turnover Chain Appearances

The turnover chain made no appearances last week after shining on the Hurricane sidelines four times in week 0. I’m not even going to offer a breakdown of BCU’s turnovers here. If the turnover chain doesn’t come out this weekend, I’ll watch last year’s Pinstripe Bowl on a loop. That’s how confident I am that the bling will resurface on Saturday.

40 Total Points

The last time the Hurricanes played Bethune-Cookman was in 2017. It was a 41-13 dismantling at Hard Rock Stadium which featured both Mark Walton and Travis Homer rushing for more than 100 yards. Gone are the likes of Walton and Homer but the disparity in programs remains the same. With a talent on defense and at the skill positions, what chances do you give the Canes of matching that 2017 bar?
