Current Records: Central Connecticut State 1-2; Miami (FL) 1-2
What to Know
The Miami (FL) Hurricanes will take on the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils at 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium. Both of these teams will be looking for a pick-me-up after considerable defeats in their previous games.
The point spread favored the Hurricanes last week, but luck did not. They suffered a grim 38-17 defeat to the Michigan State Spartans. This game was a close 10-7 at the break, but unfortunately for Miami (FL) it sure didn’t stay that way. QB D’Eriq King had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: despite one touchdown, he threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball twice.
Meanwhile, Central Connecticut State was pulverized by the Southeastern Louisiana Lions 56-10 last week. Central Connecticut State was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 28-3.
The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 1-2. Neither Miami (FL) (1-0 after losses) nor Central Connecticut State (also 1-0) has made a habit of hanging their heads after losses this season, so another slip-up will be unusual territory for either squad.
