Back like we never left, and we’re looking for REVENGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome back to another Miami Hurricanes gameday, everyone! And this week, we’re looking for revenge!!!!!!!!

The Miami Hurricanes travel to Durham, NC to face the Duke Blue Devils, an ACC Coastal foe who has defeated the Canes in consecutive years for the first time in the HISTORY of either program.

While the Blue Devils are struggling this year with a near-nation’s worst -13 turnover margin and a 2-7 record (1-7 in the ACC), Miami is enjoying one of the best seasons in recent memory at 7-1 (6-1 in ACC). These are teams in very different places, and on very different trajectories. This is a game where, in their return from a 2-week COVID-19 hiatus, Miami should purge years of bad results against the Blue Devils.

And, since this game is at Duke, I’m contractually obligated to include video of Miami’s epic 8-lateral, game winning kickoff return at Duke in 2015.

And yes, David Njoku’s crackback block during #TheReturn is STILL my spirit animal.
