Brandon McGee, Seantrel Henderson, Cory Grisson Among Top NFL Draft Prospects in USF-Miami Matchup

Sitting at 5-5 and tied atop the ACC Coastal division, the Miami Hurricanes are playing their last home game of the season in a fog of uncertainty. With a win over the Canes’ rivals, South Florida, Miami would clinch bowl eligibility.

Miami seniors look to leave legacy at 'The U'

CORAL GABLES, Fla. No national championships. No ACC titles. No division crowns. No bowl victories. Not exactly the way a Miami recruiting class expects to leave The U.

NC State, Miami playing for 1st time since 2008

The last time North Carolina State and Miami met in football, gas was $1.82 a gallon and George W. Bush was still residing in the White House. So a little bit has changed since. It's a quirk of life in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Sometimes, conference rivals are more like strangers, which is the case when it comes to the Hurricanes (3-1, 2-0) and Wolfpack (3-1, 0-0) - whose...

#48 Miami Hurricanes: College Football 77 in 77

For the Miami Hurricanes it’s not all about the U. It’s all about the NCAA sanctions; which will be forthcoming.
