Latest Odds : MIA -14 Total 50
Hand it to Miami. The college football community at large seemed to expect the Hurricanes' FBS Playoff hopes to get squashed at some point this season, but they're now just a couple wins away from competing for a national championship.
No. 3 Miami (10-0, 7-0) survived a slow start to take care of Virginia last week. The Cavaliers had 28-14 lead after halftime but couldn't handle the Hurricane storm that rallied for a 44-28 win. That's consecutive games for Miami with at least 40 points.
Junior quarterback Malik Rosier isn't the best quarterback in the nation, but he has the poise to make plays at critical moments. Rosier has tossed 23 touchdowns this season, and has run for five more.
Looking forward, Miami will match up with No. 2 Clemson in the ACC championship game. That game will undoubtedly have a lot to say about the eventual FBS Playoff picture.
Pittsburgh (4-7, 2-5) will miss out on a bowl game this season, even if the Panthers could overcome Miami on Friday. Pittsburgh might be looked at as a traditional spoiler, but the Panthers have played three ranked teams this season and have gone down by more than two touchdowns in all three games.
Last week, Pittsburgh lost 20-14 against Virginia Tech. The Panthers were stood up at the goal line late to fall by six points.
Senior receiver Jester Weah hauled in four receptions for 104 yards against the Hokies. He has three 100-yard games this season and 618 total yards.
