About Miami: The Canes will fielding their most experienced roster since head coach Mark Richt arrived 3 years ago. Much of the teams success will hinge on the arm of 6’1″ 216 Lb. quarterback Malik Rosier (131.1 passer rating). The senior QB is coming off an inconsistent season but will be surrounded by game breaking talent at the skill positions and a massive offensive line that averages 6’4 3/4″ 325 Lbs. Electric running back Travis Homer (4.42 40-time) is a potential 1st round NFL pick and can take it to the house on any carry. The defense appears to be a fast and aggressive unit that should be among the nation’s top-10. 6’0″ 240 Lb. Sophomore middle linebacker Shaq Quarterman (4.73 40-time) is a projected 2nd rounder. Special teams could be strength if freshman kicker Bubba Baxa can remain poised. Miami vs LSU Odds Over/Under is at 47.0 Points with 66% of predictions on the Under

About: LSU: The boys in Baton Rogue are among the nation’s most inexperienced teams but still have droves of speed and SEC talent. Junior QB Joe Burrow will lead the Tigers behind a quality set of blockers that average 6’4 1/2″ 312 Lbs. The 6’3″ 215 Lb. Ohio State transfer has thrown only 39 career passes but has been excellent in practice and could be a star. LSU’s wideouts are tall and physical with six targets 6’3″ or taller. The Tigers have a hard hitting top-20 defense that is a little inexperienced along the defensive line. LSU’s secondary is among the nations best with sophomore Greedy Williams (4.40 40-time) a potential 1st rounder. The linebacking corps is led by potential 1st rounder Devin White 6’1″ 240 (4.54 40-time) Special teams were an area of concern last year with poor coverage units. LSU will most likely have the edge in crowd support.
