Against the Golden Knights (3-2), the Hurricanes (4-1) are in what is arguably the easier portion of their schedule. Miami QB Jacory Harris has thrown at least two touchdowns in all four wins. He did not throw one in the loss at Virginia Tech. He also has thrown seven interceptions. RB Damien Berry saw his first career action in last week's 48-16 win against Division I-AA Florida A&M with 14 carries, 162 yards and a touchdown. Miami announced this week that DT Marcus Forston (ankle) and TE Richard Gordon (arm) have season-ending injuries. DT Josh Holmes (lower body) and DE Eric Moncur (groin) are also out with injuries. Miami will travel by bus to Orlando instead of by airplane to trim athletic department costs. The Hurricanes will do the same on Nov. 28 when they travel to Tampa to face USF.
What to watch for …
UCF will focus on trying to improve its total offense, ranked 100th nationally (319.6 yards per game). Former Largo RB Brynn Harvey leads the Knights. He's ranked 17th nationally, averaging 107.2 yards per game. Harvey is coming off his most productive game, 219 yards and one touchdown in a 32-14 win against Memphis on Oct. 3. Harvey, a sophomore, has rushed for 536 yards and six touchdowns to eclipse his season totals (519 yards, one touchdown) from 2008.
