Reasons Why Miami Will Make The BCS, Possible Orange Bowl Appearance

1 of 5

    You Miami fans have waited for some good news. I have spouted off about the game against Ohio State way too much. 

    The Hurricanes will put on a show this year and they will be rewarded with a BCS bowl game.

Jacory Harris

2 of 5

    Harris is a junior this year and has some experience to go by. He is the leader of the offense and can really get things going. He has a great offense to work with because there is some depth at the wide receiver and running back positions.

The Schedule Is That Of A Potential BCS Team

3 of 5

    The Hurricanes have several tough games that will provide challenging tests that will prepare them for what is to come.

    They travel to Columbus to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes on September 11 in what could be the most talked about game this season.

    They also have to battle Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech. If they can win both of these conference games, they should be the ACC Champions.

Offensive Players To Watch

4 of 5

    Miami running back Graig Cooper was a main cogwheel for Miami's offensive machine. He rushed for 695 yards and 4 touchdowns.

    The other running back, Damien Berry rushed for 616 yards and 8 touchdowns. This Miami one-two punch can do some serious damage this year.

    Also, wide receiver Leonard Hankerson can make some noise. His performance last year was nothing short of impressive as he caught 45 passes for 801 yards and 6 touchdowns.

    Cooper, Berry, and Hankerson are all seniors. Harris is a junior. The offense has a lot of experience now as well as veteran leadership.

Miami's Destiny Could Be The Orange Bowl

5 of 5

    Miami is bound and determined to return to the BCS. The committee  should pay a lot of attention to this team as they are looking to make some noise against daunting competition. The Hurricanes are in a statement year and it's time to prove what they are made of.

    A trip to the Orange Bowl would be nice and they could face the Florida Gators this year.
