Great young men have graced the gridiron for the Hurricanes and the Sooners. Legendary dudes, NFL-grade athlete meat, the cream of the coed crop. Envision a night with all the Dick Enberg toupée hoopla of the Orange Bowl. Now toss in a resurgent Hurricanes team with perennial Big 12 beast Oklahoma. Recipe for a title game? Or an early season spoiler?
Its the Miami Hurricanes vs. the Oklahoma Sooners this Saturday. Cane-legend-in-the-making Jacory Harris cant afford to phone it in on these Sooners. Everyone is writing them off after losing their opener to Mormon powerhouse BYU. Since then, in spite of that upset, the Sooners have put up a combined score of 109-0. Underdog might be the position Oklahoma wants after years of being the alpha dog. Connecting for more than seven TDs this season, QB Landry Jones and WR Ryan Broyles are legit. Kickers and punters are even going to work out for this game; yes, its that big. Seats in The Shark are going from $19 to $375.
