On Saturday, the #3 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish will face-off against the #7 ranked Miami Hurricanes in primetime. Just in case you missed it, here is the preview for this game.
What the Hurricanes need to do on offense: I think getting quarterback Malik Rosier comfortable early in this game could go a long way. Also need Rosier to not turn the ball over and give the Irish extra possessions with the football.Rosier and Travis Homer should at least have 20-25 carries between the two. I believe the Hurricanes wide receivers are going to have to make plays, especially if they can get one on one opportunities.
What the Hurricanes need to do on defense: The Irish comes into this game with the #3 ranked rushing offense, so that will receive all the Hurricane defenders attention. This defense has to make quarterback Brandon Wimbush beat them through the air. So I’m sure that defensive coordinator Manny Diaz will do a lot of run blitzes to turn and put the Irish offense behind the sticks. This could give the Hurricanes opportunistic secondary a chance to create some turnovers.
Prediction: The atmosphere in this one is going to great and I expect both teams to be fired up. But when it is all said and done, I think the Irish will come out on top.
