Miami Hurricanes National Championship Odds
The Miami Hurricanes are under new direction in 2019, and are hoping to make a quick transition with former defensive coordinator Manny Diaz now at the helm. The Hurricanes only went 7-6 a season ago but have enough returning talent for the expectations to be higher this year. Miami needs to become more consistent offensively but there are a lot of intriguing pieces on this team. It will take some work for the Hurricanes to win the ACC this season because powerhouse Clemson is the team to beat, but Miami figures to be among the better teams in the conference.

Miami coach Mark Richt retired after last season, and Diaz was promoted after initially planning to leave to become the coach of Temple. The Hurricanes only allowed 19.5 points per game last season under his guidance and will aim to have a dominant defense once again. Jonathan Garvin will return as a disruptive force on the defensive line, although Miami did lose some other key pieces up front. Shaquille Quarterman and Michael Pinckney are a pair of standout linebackers returning, while Trajan Bandy has the talent level to be a shutdown cornerback. There are question marks elsewhere in the secondary, and Miami’s progress there could help decide its fate.
The offense is the bigger concern. N’Kosi Perry split time at quarterback a year ago and is aiming to hold onto the job in 2019. He threw for 1,091 yards a season ago with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions. Tate Martell is an Ohio State transfer who is eligible immediately and could be ready to fill in if Perry falters. Wide receiver K.J. Osborn is expected to do big things after transferring in from Buffalo, and he leads a group of receivers with a lot of potential. DeeJay Dallas figures to get the lion’s share of the work at running back, but defenses figure to focus their attention on him unless the passing game can get going.
There are a lot of talented pieces for Miami this season but it will all go for naught unless this group can get some more dependable quarterback play.

The Canes program had a humble beginning. They didn’t win more than nine games in a season until the mid-1980s when they reached the pinnacle of the college football world. Under Howard Schnellenberger, the Canes won nine games in 1980 and ranked 18th in the final AP poll, their first end of the year ranking since 1966. Three years later the Canes would go 11-1, win the Orange Bowl and claim the first of five National Championships.
The program reached even loftier heights under Jimmy Johnson, who took over in 1984. Following an 8-5 first season, the Canes would go 44-4 in the next four years, winning another National Championship in 1987 with a perfect 12-0 record. In their first season under Dennis Erickson, the Canes would claim their third National Championship with an 11-1 record and a victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.
After playing their previous seasons as an independent, Miami joined the Big East Conference in 1991 and made a historic splash in its first season. For the second time in five years the Canes would go 12-0 and win a National Championship. Miami dominated its stay in the Big East and captured its fifth title with another 12-0 mark in 1991. The Canes moved to the ACC in 2004 and claimed their first Coastal Division title last season.
