The University of Miami Hurricanes are back on the winning side of things after an impressive 24-6 beating of then-No.17 Ohio State in a battle of two programs that are under the heavy scrutiny of the NCAA.
Lamar Miller rushed for 188 yards and a score in the contest, which included a scintillating 54-yard run from his first carry from scrimmage.
Next up for the embattled Hurricanes are the Kansas State Wildcats, winners of two games against Kent State and Eastern Kentucky.
The Wildcats have not faced a defense of the caliber of the Hurricanes, and junior QB Collin Klein should expect to be hit and hit often by the aggressive defense of the 'Canes.
A win by the Hurricanes will make a definitive case that they should be in the Top 25. No one is really expecting the 'Canes to do much, as the ongoing NCAA investigation is likely to be a season-long distraction.
