Randy’s Pick

The Miami Hurricanes are a poorly coached team that I don't trust with a lot of points. This is senior night for a Boston College squad that has 24 seniors, and we're also dealing with weather in the 40s with the possibility to get colder. How are these Miami boys going to handle the cold? BC still has a top-25 rushing attack and the defense defends the pass well. I'm not just laying these sorts of numbers with a Canes team that's been different since the Georgia Tech disaster. Give me the points with the Eagles.
