We all know about the issues with the Hurricanes and the fact Al Golden can't coach. However, Miami is usually a team that plays up to its oppoenent and is more than capable of pulling off an upset or two, especially at home. Clemson really hasn't had to prove itself on the road this season and the Canes have more than enough offensive firepower to hang.
I really like Miami and the points, and wouldn't be shocked if the Hurricanes won outright.
