The 19th ranked Miami Hurricanes (1-1) are looking bounce back after a 36-24 loss to the #2 Buckeyes in Columbus. The defeat was embarrassing to say the least filled multiple turnovers and mental errors. In order to regain national credibility, UM will face former Big East rival, the Pittsburgh Panthers (1-1). These are Miami’s five keys to assure a victory over Pitt.

  1. Establish The Run Game

Being on the road one of UM’s main priorities should be controlling the clock. With Miami having talented backs like Damien Berry, Lamar Miller and Mike James they should have great success running the ball. This will open up the pass game to make big things happen very quickly.

     2.  Win The Battle In The Trenches

Pitt has a formidable Offense with good Offensive weapons such as Running Back Dion Lewis and Receiver Jonathan Baldwin to name a few. However Pitt’s Offensive Line is quite small and their quarterback is young. If Miami’s Defensive Line can put enough pressure on quarterback Tino Sunseri turnovers will come.

     3.   Make Plays On Special Teams

One way to quickly change the momentum in a game is on Special Teams. With a playmaker like Travis Benjamin returning punts, the game could be blown wide open very quickly. Also don’t forget about Kicker Matt Bosher who three players all rolled into one.

    4.  Win The Turnover Battle

    5.  Jacory Needs To Be Jacory: Nothing More & Nothing Less
