Miami vs Central Connecticut State Game Preview
Why Central Connecticut State Will Win
Can the Blue Devils catch the Hurricanes while they’re really, really down?
The ACC season kicks in next week with Virginia, and Miami could use any sort of break after getting rocked by Alabama and Michigan State and struggling against Appalachian State.
The Canes can’t move the ball as well as they should. There’s little to no running game, there’s no ball control, and the defense isn’t picking up the slack.
Central Connecticut State is fantastic at controlling the game by hanging on to the ball for over 38 minutes per game. It doesn’t turn the ball over, the run D has been great, and …
Why Miami Will Win
There isn’t enough offense to keep up, and the secondary is about to get bombed on.
Miami will obviously use this game as a tune-up, and it needs it.
The offensive line has to prove it can consistently block someone and the running backs have to know what it’s like to have a hole to run through.
As long as there aren’t any big turnovers, Miami should be able to do whatever it wants against this D.
What’s Going To Happen
Normally this would be the game to get some rest, see what the 2s and 3s can do, and just enjoy the scrimmage.
Miami needs this just to feel good about itself, if only for a moment.
It’s not going to play D’Eriq King any more than it has to, but the team isn’t going to take it easy. Beating Central Connecticut State won’t prove anything, but the team needs to have a little fun.
