What you need to know about Miami (FL)

It was close but no cigar for Miami (FL) as they fell 45-42 to the North Carolina Tar Heels last Saturday. Miami's loss came about despite a quality game from RB Jaylan Knighton, who punched in two rushing touchdowns in addition to snatching one receiving TD. One of the most thrilling moments of the game was Knighton's 60-yard TD reception in the third quarter.

The Hurricanes are looking to both snap a two-game losing streak and notch their first conference win of the 2021 season, which won't be an easy task against a stout NC State defense without starting quarterback D'Eriq King, who is out for the year with a shoulder injury.

What you need to know about NC State

Meanwhile, NC State rode a strong second half performance to blow past Boston College last weekend 33-7. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, when the Wolfpack had established a 31-7 advantage. NC State QB Devin Leary was slinging it, throwing for 251 yards and three touchdowns on 24 attempts. Near the top of the highlight reel was Leary's 79-yard TD bomb to WR Thayer Thomas in the third quarter.

NC State is looking for its fifth-straight win. A victory over Miami would keep the Wolfpack on pace with Wake Forest in the ACC Atlantic division.
