The ACC ‘Game of the Week’ features the Miami Hurricanes who are coming off of 34-6 win over Florida Atlantic facing off against the 10th ranked Gators. The overwhelming sentiment coming out of the Hurricanes win was the dominance of their running back Duke Johnson, and if the Gators can’t contain him they could be in for a long day. However, the Gators have one of the best defenses in the league which gave up only 50 yards rushing in week 1, and last year they finished 4th in run defense overall. Keep Duke contained and the Gators will roll, if not there is an upset-a-brewing.
Interesting and scary side note: Florida is getting back 5 defensive players back on the field who were suspended for week 1 including Loucheiz Purifoy. Only Pittman will be ineligible to play.
