Two undefeated teams that took different paths to get here, face off in this week 2 matchup.
FAU comes in after a tough win against FCS opponent Southern Illinois, while Miami easily beat down Florida A&M.
Jason Driskel had 2 touchdowns through the air, and added another on the ground to go along with 41 rushing yards. His dual threat ability will keep the hurricanes defense honest all afternoon.
RB Gregory Howell had 128 yards with 2 Td’s on only 16 carries. He should be able to find holes in the Miami defense and have a good outing.
In order for Florida Atlantic to have any chance at winning a game they must stop potential top 5 draft pick Brad Kaaya.
Giving up 376 yards to an FCS level QB means the defense will be in for a long day.
The hurricanes offense starts with Brad Kaaya.
He is a potential top 5 NFL draft pick and should shine in Mark Richt’s offense that has gotten remarkable QB play during his time at Georgia.
I expect him to easily reach 250 yards and 3 TD’s through the air.
The running game was outstanding against their FCS foe, with 3 rushers going over 100 yards. Expect the running game to click on all cylinders against a week Owls defense.
Mark Walton should become the workhorse back this week and I expect him to be utilized the same way Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb were while Richt was head coach at Georgia.
The receiving corps had 3 different players catch touchdown passes, but none had over 45 yards receiving.
Expect the Miami speed to create mismatches in the secondary, leading to long gains throughout the afternoon.
The key area of the defense to focus on will be the linebacker position.
All 3 spots will be filled by freshman from the 2016 class, so there early season games like this will help them adjust to the speed of the game.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Prediction
FAU squeaked by Southern Illinois in week 1, I don’t see them with any shot of keeping the game competitive against this talented Hurricanes roster.
It will be lower scoring than Vegas expects, but Miami still dominates on both sides of ball.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Miami ATS and the Under
Brad Kaaya is going to light up the FAU secondary. It wouldn’t surprise me to see this game over by the end of the first half.
The ground game will control the ball in the second half and the defense will bottle up FAU’s running game, forcing them to be one dimensional.
