After a close scare against the Tar Heels, Miami looks to bounce back in a strong way against a Wake Forest team that has shown little capability to score, they too however have a very strong defense that has not allowed more than 20 points this season but when it comes to offense they seem to think a field goal is just as important as a touchdown and they win their games that way. The Hurricanes will look to really run the ball and do a much better job than they did against North Carolina because they are not fare from falling out of the rankings with another close game or loss.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs. (7) Miami Hurricanes

The Demon Deacons have always had a good, strong defense that holds its own on the field when it has too but their issue has always been their running game, mostly nonexistent. There is nothing to help the QB out if he gets in trouble or has nowhere to turn, the receivers are decent but with zone coverage and double team it makes it hard to move the chains. I think Wake Forest will move the ball using more tight end formations and full backs for the short yardage.
Miami needs to bounce back for momentum purposes, they did win their last game but on national television it was a horrible showing for a ranked team, turning the ball over, throwing into triple coverage and penalties are what really hurt them. They will more than definitely look to cut all those incidents out for this upcoming game and get back into the explosive offensive unite they are known for.
What to Expect:
Miami is -17 in this game and I have to admit that as sure that I am they will bounce back, I’m not sure they will do it in such a commanding fashion. For that price I’ll endorse the dog, just seems like too many points to give up for a team that looked as bad as they did just a few days ago.
