This is the game of the week and not because both teams are ranked. It should be a good one.
Miami looked solid in their opener, beating UAB, and building a base for a strong season.
Ditto for Louisville which looks like the best contender should Clemson struggle at all their division this season.
In college football, one game does not a turnaround make. We are all just waiting for Miami to be the “U” again because it makes the sport so much better.
There is good reason for optimism though. With D’Eriq King the offense looked a lot more functional though he did more damage on the ground than through the air.
Miami rushed for more than 300 yards against a good UAB defense. King is so mobile and that really takes the pressure of an offensive line that was bad a year ago.
The Canes defense did not give up a ton to the Blazers but Louisville is going to be a whole other animal, they have a lot more skill to contend with.
Miami is getting a “close up” here. In the past I would have jumped on the Canes anytime I was grabbing some points but I am have burned a lot lately.
The Cardinals appear to be on the rise in the ACC. If that is the case we should see it in a solid win over Miami on Saturday, with the whole world of CFB watching.
Like the Hurricanes the Cardinals took on a solid Conference USA opponent in their first game and did their best to put them away early.
Micale Cunningham is an underrated quarterback. In this offense, which is really well balanced he is effective and able to create big plays.
The defense held them back last season. They looked OK in their win but I that Western Kentucky team is not a strong offense.

There are lots of ways to approach this. One thing I am trying to figure out is who played the better opponent in their first game of the season. Who is better UAB or Western Kentucky?
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Miami +2.5
I think King is not only an upgrade but his elusiveness will take away so many of the negative plays we have seen from Miami in the recent past.
This one looks like a back and forth affair with whoever has the ball last likely winning it. I think Miami has a great chance to do so, even on the road. Both teams probably get in the 30s too so the over is interesting.
