Limit Miami Run Game
A lot has been made about Miami’s running game by some analysts and pundits. However, I don’t think it’s quite as good as some believe. Nevertheless, Miami will need some semblance of a running game because I don’t believe they can drop back and sling the ball all over the field.
They ran the ball 26 times for 113 yards and two touchdowns against Virginia. They ran 32 times for 119 yards and zero touchdowns against NC State last week.
They managed to run the ball for over 200 yards against a stout Clemson defense three weeks ago. However, I think their woes at QB have impacted their running game the past two weeks.
Freshman Emory Williams started the Clemson game for an injured Tyler Van Dyke. FSU’s defensive front has been stout against the traditional run game, aside from a couple of plays here and there.
If they don’t respect Miami’s passing game, it could be a long night for Miami’s running game.
