Good morning. The Miami Hurricanes play football tomorrow against the North Carolina Tar Heels. With a 10-1 season and a possible Orange Bowl appearance on the line, there are some major goals still in play for Miami after missing out on a trip to Charlotte for the ACC championship game. In fact, this could be a de facto play in game for the ACC’s Orange Bowl slot, depending on how the final week’s action and CFP rankings shake out. And there’s still revenge to be had from a disgusting second loss of the 2019 season. “4th and 17” should be the Canes’ “Remember the Alamo” cry on Saturday.
