University of Miami Hurricanes fans are likely looking ahead to next weekend’s matchup with the Florida State Seminoles. But, the team can’t afford to do that with a stout North Carolina Tar Heels team coming to Sun Life Stadium on Saturday.
The old adage in the NFL is to win you have to be able to run the football and stop the run. The Miami Dolphins are running Reggie Bush to success and the Fins’ defensive front seven has become the pre-eminent run-stoppers in the NFL this season.
The Miami Hurricanes were at one time a defensive behemoth that constantly put stars into the NFL. But after giving up more than 30 points and 440 yards passing to an average Boston College team, the defense is the team’s biggest worry.
