The Miami Hurricanes played a splendid first quarter against Ohio State on Saturday night and, with just a few moments left in the half, have a 14-6 lead on the Buckeyes.
The 'Canes looked much better, and far sharper, than in their opening week loss at Maryland. With quarterback Jacory Harris at the helm, Miami seems a bit more crisp tonight playing before the home crowd (although it's not, and never will be, the old Orange Bowl).
Ohio State is still a bit of a team in turmoil, as last week's narrow win over Toledo will attest, and the Hurricanes need to take advantage. But they also need to pick up the pace on defense—they're lucky those two OSU field goals weren't two touchdowns.
