What to Know
The Miami (FL) Hurricanes have the luxury of staying home another week and will welcome the Michigan State Spartans at noon ET Sept. 18 at Hard Rock Stadium. Miami (FL) is the favorite in this one, with an expected 7-point margin of victory.
Last week, the Hurricanes narrowly escaped with a victory as the team sidled past the Appalachian State Mountaineers 25-23. Miami (FL)'s RB Cam'Ron Harris filled up the stat sheet, punching in one rushing touchdown. Harris had some trouble finding his footing against the Alabama Crimson Tide two weeks ago, so this was a step in the right direction.
Special teams collected 11 points for Miami (FL). K Andres Borregales delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, when you finish with 265 more yards than your opponent like MSU did last week, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They blew past the Youngstown State Penguins 42-14. The squad ran away with 35 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the win. QB Payton Thorne had a stellar game for MSU as he passed for four TDs and 280 yards on 21 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. Near the top of the highlight reel was Thorne's 85-yard TD bomb to WR Jayden Reed in the second quarter.
Their wins bumped the Hurricanes to 1-1 and the Spartans to 2-0. Watch the contest and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
