Miami is 4-3 on the year, 1-2 in the ACC, 4-3 against the spread and 4-3 with the under. The Hurricanes are coming off an embarrassing 58-0 loss to Clemson at home last week which led to the firing of Al Golden as coach. Larry Scott takes over as interim coach. He inherits a team that is averaging 28.9 points and 401.3 yards per game on offense while allowing 27.7 points and 406.1 yards per game on defense. Brad Kaaya has thrown for 1,846 yards and 10 touchdowns this year, but he is doubtful to play with a concussion, which could put Malik Rosier under center. He has just 28 pass attempts in 2015. The team may have to rely on back Joseph Yearby, who has rushed for 559 yards and five touchdowns.
