The Hurricanes suffered a major injury a few weeks back when they were defeated 41-14 at Florida St on November 2nd. They lost their leading running back in Duke Johnson with a broken ankle and team went on to lose to Virginia Tech and at Duke by 18 points in each game. Johnson was a vital piece of the Hurricanes offense as he account for 920 rushing yards on 145 carries and had a 6.3 yards per rush average during the 2013 campaign. They beat a very bad Virginia team last week but were outgained b 179 yards in the process. With the Johnson injury that means too much of the load will be on quarterback Stephen Morris. During his career at the school Morris has struggled with decision making and tends to make mistakes during drives that prove costly for the team. He has 12 interceptions on the year which is rather high for a senior. Miami continues from their defensive woes in 2012 as in 2013 the club is allowing 410 yards a game ranking 75th in the nation. Teams are able to run for 180 yards per game against the Hurricanes ranking 78th in major college football. During their recent three game losing streak the game surrendered 41 points at Florida St, 42 at home to an offensively challenged Virginia Tech team and 48 points at a Duke team. Giving up 26 points last week at home to Virginia is also concerning because the Cavaliers are a horrid offensive unit. Have to like how Pittsburgh handled Notre Dame a few weeks back with a 28-21 home win and cover getting +4 ½ points. They win on the road last week at Syracuse.
With our college football pick for Friday we will play on the Pittsburgh Panthers at a pick against the Miami Hurricanes at the online sports books.
