Miami has had some time to come down from the high of their thrilling 38-34 win at Florida State on opening week and the Hurricanes' sophomore quarterback Jacory Harris looks like he's made huge strides as a passer based on his 21 for 34 for 386 yards performance in that win.

Harris could post some good number Thursday night too against a questionable Georgia Tech secondary that was lit up in the 2nd half of their narrow 30-27 win over Clemson last Thursday night.

However, Georgia Tech's offense looks very good and has averaged 7.3 yards per play in two games, including 6.7 yppl against a good Clemson stop unit. Miami's defense allowed 404 yards at 5.7 yppl to a Florida State attack that isn't much better than average.

My ratings favor Miami by just 1 point and Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson's teams are 34-13 ATS away from home in his career (4-2 with G Tech) while Randy Shannon is only 1-7 ATS as a home favorite of more than 3 points. I'll lean with the Yellow Jackets plus the points in this game.
