The Bethune-Cookman Wildcats and Miami Hurricanes play Saturday at Sun Life Stadium.

The Bethune-Cookman Wildcats look to build on a solid 9-3 record last season that included a win over FIU. Quentin Williams returns at quarterback after completing 61.7 percent of his passes for 1,426 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. Frank Brown and Anthony Jordan combined for more than 500 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Jaime Wilson had one touchdown on 14 receptions. Jordan will lead the Wildcats at running back after rushing for 612 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. Defensively, Donald Smith returns after racking up 46 tackles for Bethune-Cookman, Ty're Simmons had four pass deflections and Robert Way had 3.5 tackles for loss.

The Miami Hurricanes finally look to take that next step after four subpar seasons under coach Al Golden. Brad Kaaya returns at quarterback after completing 58.5 percent of his passes for 3,198 yards, 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Herb Waters and Braxton Berrios combined for more than 500 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Stacy Coley had 23 receptions. Gus Edwards takes over at running back after rushing for 349 yards and six touchdowns last season. Defensively, Jermaine Grace returns after picking up 60 tackles for Miami, Tyriq McCord had 6.5 tackles for loss and Deon Bush had two interceptions.

The Wildcats lost a ton of talent on both sides of the ball. Miami did as well, but there's insane level talent to replace its losses. While this is a lot of chalk, the Hurricanes should have little trouble rolling in this game.

Can you say blowout?
