Miami (4-5 SU, 4-5 ATS) is looking to bounce back from a 37-3 home loss last week to Tennessee, while Buffalo (3-6 SU, 4-5 ATS) is trying to bounce back from a hard-fought 37-31 loss at New England, getting 13.5.

North Carolina (6-4) at Virginia (4-6)
Last year: NORTH CAROLINA (-10) over Virginia, 28-17.The Heels have a very talented offense, but they struggled last week against the triple-option (to be mild), in their 68-50 record-breaking loss to Georgia Tech. They won’t be facing the option this week when they take on UVa and QB Michael Rocco. Virginia is looking to run the table to become bowl eligibile.
