The Pick

Miami -3

Miami has been a completely different team as Van Dyke has emerged as the Hurricanes starting quarterback after injuries to the position. In the Hurricanes’ three-game winning streak, he has thrown for 1,140 yards with 10 touchdowns and an interception. It’s tough to see how the Seminoles keep up as they averaged just 256 total yards of offense in their last two matchups.
