The Miami Hurricanes improved to a 5-1 record overall after trouncing the Knights of the University of Central Florida 27-7 this past Saturday evening. The win helped Miami stay in the national contention conversation. Miami consequently was given a No. 10 ranking in the BCS poll – the poll that decides who ultimately plays in what bowl at the end of the season.

It was a solid performace for The U. While the running game stumbled, the passing game exploded with Jacory Harris finishing just shy of 300 yards passing. The banged up defense was able to contain the Knights as well ensuring an appropriate lop-sided victory.

Miami’s only loss this season came at the hands of the Virginia Tech. Hokies. Those same Hokies dropped a second game this past weekend and may have moved out of contention for the national title.

I expect the canes will move up steadily into the 5-6 range over the course of the season should they continue to win against lesser ACC and non-conference opponents.
