Miami could make a BCS run
Why Hurricanes' win over Florida wasn't a fluke, could lead to bigger things
That feat has been accomplished only twice since then (1984 Brigham Young and 1990 Georgia Tech), but after an impressive 21-16 over the Florida Gators, it is clear this year's Miami squad has a chance not only to win its division but also come close to replicating its predecessors' achievement by earning a berth to a BCS game. This would require the Canes to catch a few breaks, and it's too early to call them national title contenders, but after taking a closer look at the game tape and metrics from their victory over Florida, it's clear that the potential for a BCS run is there.
One of the more impressive elements of the Canes' win Saturday was how Miami's defense won the battle of the line of scrimmage versus the Gators' offense.
