North Carolina at #16 Miami, 3:30 PM Saturday
Georgia pushed longtime head coach Mark Richt out the door this past season in order to import Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart, on the theory that if you can't beat them, hire their assistants. That plan may come to fruition long term, but in the short run, Smart has often looked flummoxed in his first year, while Richt's cool professionalism has the Hurricanes off to an impressive 4-1 start, blemished only by a blocked PAT at the end of last week's loss to Florida State. North Carolina has been a puzzle, springing a road upset on the Seminoles two weeks ago, only to be trounced at home by Virginia Tech last week, managing just a field goal in a 31-point loss. Did you know the 'Canes play in something called "Hard Rock Stadium"? Lets just say that that will make the difference and move on.
