True, but for now I would not be surprised if UCF pulls the upset. Injuries are starting to pile up for Miami.

Could be a good game....

Depending on weather, should be about 60,000-65,000 EMPTY seats to choose from...

I, too, am hoping for an upset - but let's be realistic here... UCF lost to UTEP, squeeked out the win against SMU at home. I think we'll have a tough time against even a weakened ACC team in their home turf.

Go Knights!

Yeah, amazing how a small private school with an enrollment of about 10,000 undergrads manages to compete with the 50,000 plus state schools.

How do they compete???

They do lead the nation in empty seats available per "home" game!!!!!! although home is a misnomer with no actual home stadium...

Maybe they can rent FIU's 25,000 seater and try to fill it up...or Lockhart???

Not sure of what the Miami Group is majoring in and graduation rate--BUT again--flush the academics at this point in history, and get some wins on the athletic side of the field. Watch what the 'Sports Admin' majors (for 2-3 years < drop out), do this weekend.

Is there supposed to be a "g" somewhere in that long line of O's? Or is that sound heard after your receiver loses the ball in the last second in the endzone (UNC game)? It sure describes the faces of the fans seen on replays, so that's what we'll go with.

All kidding aside, it will definitely be a fun game and UCF fans might outnumber the UM fans at this point. Should be interesting! GGGGoooo Knights!

Three Undefeated National Championships, including the 2001 BCS champ sounds like they compete to me.

Miami had the #1 class according to ESPN last year. Looks like they could repeat this year.

Now, about those undefeated Gator teams..........
