Think an upset is unthinkable? This is the 30th anniversary of the Rattlers' 16-13 victory against Miami at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee. The Hurricanes survived games against four Top 25 teams to start the season 3-1 after last week's 21-20 win against then-No. 8 Oklahoma. Miami is led by QB Jacory Harris, who has thrown for 1,008 yards, eight TDs and just two interceptions. The schedule seemingly turns in its favor beginning with the Rattlers (4-0), who bring one of the nation's top punt returners in former Blake High star LeRoy Vann. He recently tied the Division I-AA mark for punt-return touchdowns with seven (also held by ex-NFL player Kenny Shedd, who set the mark at Northern Iowa in the 1990s).
