College football preview: Miami Hurricanes at Pittsburgh Panthers

With both teams at 1-1, the winner of this game will be in next week's Top 25 and the loser likely out. In the last meeting between the teams, Miami won 28-14 in 2003. The key will be how the Panthers match up against UM's speed. The Hurricanes are likely the fastest team Pitt will face. Pitt's Dion Lewis, the nation's leading returning rusher after gaining 1,799 yards last season, is off to a surprisingly slow start with 102 yards and a 2.9 yards per carry average. He was benched for Ray Graham during the second half against New Hampshire. Miami has won 32 consecutive games against unranked conference opponents. Pitt is 1-10 against ranked nonconference opponents since 1996.
