Miami (6-1, 5-1 ACC), is a two-point underdog for the game that is slated to kickoff at 12 p.m. on ESPN.

Down 41-37 with just under four minutes to go in the fourth quarter, King orchestrated an 84-yard drive that resulted in a 54-yard touchdown pass to Mike Harley.
“Everybody has to stay positive,” said King. “We’re 5-1, only loss was to the No. 1 team in the country, we played horrible that game, but right now, we’re 5-1. I think we’re in a good spot.”
Men’s basketball coach Jim Larrañaga is going on his 10th year as head coach at Miami, while women’s coach Katie Meier is entering her 16th season as head coach at UM, and neither of the two have faced anything close to the unprecedented challenges this offseason brought.
Per the UM athletic department, Waardenburg, a key rotation player for the Hurricanes, is expected to be sidelined for approximately six months.
