The Hurricanes won their opener 45-0 against I-AA Florida A&M. No doubt today's game against the Buckeyes, who beat Marshall 45-7 in their opener, will be more of a challenge. The programs last met in the January 2003 Fiesta Bowl, a game that turned on a disputed pass interference against the Hurricanes on fourth down in the first overtime. The Buckeyes went on to win the national title 31-24 in double overtime. Miami coach Randy Shannon, left, was UM's defensive coordinator then.

Some believe this is Shannon's opportunity to guide the Hurricanes to a monumental road win. If so, QB Jacory Harris will be key. He was sharp in the opener, completing 12 of 15 passes for 210 yards and three touchdowns. The Buckeyes answer with Terrelle Pryor, who was 17-of-25 for 247 yards and three touchdowns against the Thundering Herd.
