Quarterback D’Eriq King transferred to Miami to play on a big stage, and it gets no bigger than this on the second Saturday in October. The early-season hype surrounding the Hurricanes means nothing if they get blown away by top-ranked Clemson.
The Tigers have been double-digit favorites in 32 consecutive regular-season games and rarely get challenged in ACC play, so this is the only true measuring-stick game on Miami’s schedule.
The Hurricanes, 3-0 and ranked No. 7, storm into Death Valley to take on Trevor Lawrence and the Tigers in the prime-time spotlight. The quarterback duel between King and Lawrence has Heisman Trophy stakes.
