The Miami Hurricanes will hit the road for the 2nd consecutive week to take on the Kansas State Wildcats. Both teams are in off opening day wins with the Wildcats tasking out Missouri State 51-9 and the Hurricanes knocking off Boston College 41-32. Kansas State is currently a -7 point favorite with a total of 52.5 at top off shore books including 5 Dimes, SBG Global and of course, the world largest sportsbook, sportsbook.ag.
This will be a rematch of last years game in Miami. A game which the Hurricanes led early in the 4th quarter and also had the ball inside the 2 yard line in the final minutes but couldn't punch it in. Miami got their yards through the air with 272 passing yards while Kansas State did their damage on the ground with 265, in a game that saw both teams with around 400 total yards.
Kansas State went on to have a 10-3 season while Miami was a disappointing 6-6. 8 of Kansas State's wins last season were by a touchdown or less. The two teams they beat by more than a TD were Kent State and Kansas. Meanwhile, all 6 of Miami's losses were by a touchdown or less. A perfect illustration of what a few bounces your way can do. Take a play or two out of each teams games last year and who knows. The point being, these were two relatively equal teams a year ago.
Kansas State is in good shape this year as far as returning skill position players from last year. They returned most of them and should be in most games this year. Miami isn't technically in as good of shape, but it's safe to say the Hurricanes still recruit better talent across the board. We see no reason why this game won't be just as close as last years game. Kansas State gets the home field this time around but Miami has the revenge motive for the 2nd week in a row. They got their revenge last week against BC, now they go for #2. Miami +7
