The Mark Richt era has gotten off to a great start in Miami. While the Hurricanes have not had a lot of difficult opponents, they have looked great against the teams they have played. Brad Kaaya looks to be even better at quarterback this season, and the Miami defense is back to being an intimidating force.
Florida State has been exposed this season, and Heavy expects that to continue tonight. Miami is the more complete team with the ability to punish the Seminoles on both sides of the ball. Expect one of the best atmospheres Miami has seen in years as the Canes roll the Noles.
Heavy’s Pick: Miami 34 Florida State 27. Miami -3. Under on the Point Total.
