Known by many as the greatest college football team of all time, the 2001 Hurricanes were dominant from start to finish.
The only game in which Miami did not blow its opponent out was its final regular season game, where it went into Lane Stadium and defeated the Virginia Tech Hokies 26-24.
Many wanted to see Oregon play in the Rose Bowl, but instead the Nebraska Huskers were chosen, and they were stomped by Miami 37-14 en route to the Hurricanes' clear-cut national championship.
The team allowed only 9.75 PPG on defense while scoring an average of 42.6 PPG. The average margin of victory was 32.9 PPG.
This squad featured college greats such as Ken Dorsey, Willis McGahee, Clinton Portis, Andre Johnson, Kellen Winslow II, Jeremy Shockey, Sean Taylor, Ed Reed, Antrel Rolle, Vernon Carey, D.J. Williams, Jon Vilma, Vince Wilfork, Bryant McKinnie and Mike Rumph, among many others.
Miami ended up having 11 first-round draft picks (17 total draft picks) from that season alone. It also included six All-Americans and 11 First Team All-Big East performers.
Fans voted the '01 Canes as the only team to beat the Trojans from '04, but many say that Miami is not only the greatest BCS team of all time, but also the greatest ever, period.
