ESPN analyst glad Miami-Notre Dame matters again

ESPN analyst glad Miami-Notre Dame matters again

3 in this week's release, while the Hurricanes checked in at No. 7. The Irish, meanwhile, are 8-1 and No. 3 in the second week of the College Football Playoff rankings. And despite not having the highest completion percentages game in and game out, Wimbush has done well in terms of throwing the ball to his own teammates, racking up just two interceptions through eight games and 200 pass attempts. If Miami can keep limit big run plays and win their battles outside with man coverage, the Canes will force Notre Dame to throw on Miami's terms.

"We're created to attack", coach Mark Richt said. Georgia Tech has returned the favor by winning the last two games in Blacksburg, with backup quarterback Matthew Jordan rushing for 121 yards and two touchdowns in last season's 30-20 victory. The Hurricanes' 13-game winning streak is the longest active one in the Football Bowl Subdivision. If Virginia loses to Louisville this week, Miami will clinch its first Coastal Division title since joining the ACC in 2004.

Notre Dame defense vs. Christopher Herndon IV: Miami's 6-foot-4, 253-pound senior has 32 catches for 392 yards and four scores.

Eventual Heisman Trophy victor Tim Brown was held to just 95 total yards and had just three drops as the Irish were shutdown for the first time in five years, which also came at the hands of the Hurricanes. Notre Dame has limited the group to one touchdown, by Wake's Jack Freudenthal last Saturday. The Irish's schedule is fine, and you better get used to it. He's averaging 8.7 yards per carry, which would smash a Notre Dame single-season record that has stood for almost a century. He also leads all players at the FBS level with seven rushes of 60 yards or more in 2017. With a combined 44 years of head coaching experience and 400 wins between them, the result of Saturday's primetime matchup will have huge recruiting implications. When Adams needs a rest, Deon McIntosh (367 yards), Dexter Williams (280) and Tony Jones (198) are capable options.

"This week, it's old-fashioned", Notre Dame left tackle Mike McGlinchey said. In addition to the success of the offensive line in clearing the way for rushers, this unit has allowed only 14 sacks in nine games. The school has started an official Heisman campaign behind Adams' jersey number - #33Trucking, "Long Drives, Reliably Delivered" is the slogan - and Saturday night will be a chance to have that moment so many voters desire to see in November. Shaq Quarterman (47 tackles and four tackles for a loss) leads the way for a trio of sophomore starters at linebacker, with Joe Jackson (7.5 TFL), Chad Thomas (7.0 TFL) and Kendrick Norton (6 TFL) the top performers in the trenches.

ADAMS WATCH: Adams is 41 yards from becoming the sixth Notre Dame back to run for 3,000 yards.

While they've met off and on through the years, the golden era of the Notre Dame-Miami rivalry came in the late 1980s and early 1990s when both programs reached the top of college football. Jackson is out for the remainder of the season due to a knee injury. The Hurricanes entered on a three-game losing streak. Wimbush only has two games this season over 200 passing yards, completing 51.3 percent of his passes.
