The Hurricanes (5-2, 2-2 ACC) are coming off a 40-37 OT loss at home to Clemson, ending any national title hopes. Miami fell 10 spots in the Associated Press poll and ranks 19th in the BCS standings. But UM still has a shot at the ACC's Coastal Division title. It trails three teams by a game, but it still plays two of those teams (Virginia, Duke). The Demon Deacons (4-4, 2-2) are coming off back-to-back losses at Clemson and at Navy, and they've scored 13 points combined in those games. Just like Miami, Wake has more success through the air than on the ground, bringing in Division I-A's 33rd-ranked passing offense (248.6 yards per game). Don't mistake Wake as a struggling team. Three of its four losses have been by three points. Miami announced that RB Javarris James and S Ray Ray Armstrong (lower-body injuries) and LB Sean Spence (left knee), last season's ACC defensive rookie of the year, are out.
What to watch for …
Miami QB Jacory Harris had his fourth multiple-interception game, throwing a season-high three last week. He also threw for two touchdowns and 256 yards.
