Miami looking to prove Dalvin Cook isn't Florida's only dominant back

The Hurricanes had time to recover from both scores.

To be fair, this was a Miami team that by the end of the season only posted a top-10 record for kickoff returns, and they played the Seminole team that had Jameis Winston, who went on to win the Heisman that year and ranked within the top-10 nationally for total offense, team passing efficiency, scoring offense, third-down conversion percentage, fourth-down conversion percentage, red zone offense, total defense, passing yards allowed, passing efficiency defense, scoring defense and kickoff returns, according to NCAA Stats. And due to the approach of Hurricane Matthew, many of them don't even involve football so much as the logistics of pulling this game off. He was also going up against a pair of his high school teammates, Hurricanes running back Joe Yearby and offensive lineman Trevor Darling.

Cook is the nation's fifth-leading rusher and has seven touchdowns through five games. "Me thinking Miami winning irks my nerve". Being unable to do so however, would show that despite Richt's rejuvenation of the program, it still has a long way to go to get back to national prominence. Miami would still hold on to the lead until the final three minutes of the game - when Cook struck again. The Hurricanes are 12th in passer rating and second in yards per carry. The No. 23 Seminoles are 0-2 in ACC play for the first time in five years following a 37-35 home loss to North Carolina while Miami is ranked in the top 10 for the first time since 2013. "We rather be let it be out, and just do everything at the school". What can we do better?

Added Miami defensive coordinator Manny Diaz: "Everyone knows he's the key to their offense, and he's still so hard to stop, which is a testament to how talented a player he is. You've got to give them a voice too". Florida State looked good enough and experienced enough to win the College Football Playoff, and running back Dalvin Cook was going to lead this team to the promised land. Despite the strong individual effort, Miami has come up 0-2 in his two starts, losing the two games by a combined nine points. They've challenged them in practice and provided guidance that they hope will make the freshmen's jobs a little more manageable. So I think we'll be fine. "I told the linebackers not to let him get started and get his speed picked up".
