The Miami Hurricanes had a chance to take down cross-state rival Florida State but couldn’t quite get over the hump.
Here are some of the main storylines heading into Saturday’s matchup between Miami and Florida State.
The Miami Hurricanes have been steadily improving as their season has progressed, but the team’s biggest test is coming up on Saturday.
Given the way Duke’s offense has piled up yards and points against Miami over the last two years, it’s easy to see why Hurricanes’ defensive end Anthony Chickillo was a little confused about the status of the rivalry.
Perryman is a linebacker from Coral Gables, the suburb the university calls home. Chickillo is a defensive lineman and third-generation Hurricane, his college plans basically set in the instant that someone turned to his parents and said, “It’s a boy.”
The University of Miami Hurricanes will take to the field at Sun Life Stadium for their annual spring game.
In an intense game that made the Miami Hurricanes look like champions for the first quarter, chumps for the next couple, and fighters to the end, it was Miami that prevailed 42-36 in overtime.
A young Miami team will open the season against Boston College on Saturday with 34 true freshmen.
While short on the usual four and five-star recruits, the University of Miami Hurricanes will still put together a good 2010 recruiting class.
