In the latest release of the CFB Playoff rankings, the top four teams in order were Alabama, Clemson, Miami and Oklahoma.

Oklahoma and Miami are both making their first appearance in the top four this season, earning the honors with wins over TCU (now No. 12) and Notre Dame (now No. 8), respectively. The weekend's other big upset -- Auburn over Georgia -- pushed the Tigers up to No. 6 (one slot behind Wisconsin) and dropped the Bulldogs to No. 6. It was Washington, though, which suffered the biggest fall. Their loss to Stanford saw them plummeting from No. 9 to No. 18. They were already on the Playoff fringe prior to their loss to the Cardinal and now those hopes have been dashed completely.

Miami junior LB Charles Perry will miss the remainder of the season with a left lower extremity injury.

This hurts Miami's depth at linebacker, but Perry was not considered a starter. Hopefully he recovers and is fully healthy for the 2018 season.

In the latest release of the Amway Coaches Poll, the top four teams in order were Alabama, Miami, Clemson and Wisconsin.

Oh boy, now things are starting to get interesting. Georgia dropped from No. 2 to No. 7 following their loss to Auburn on Saturday. Sitting one spot ahead of them? That would be Auburn itself. Miami, meanwhile, has finally broken through after lurking in the top 10 for much of the season. They ascended four spots courtesy of their win over Notre Dame, while the Irish dropped to No. 9. Meanwhile, TCU (No. 14) and Washington (No. 15) both took big hits following respective losses to Oklahoma and Stanford. Neither the coaches poll, nor the AP Top-25 is necessarily an indicator of what we might see in the next Playoff rankings release on Tuesday, but at the very least, Miami is probably just about ready to crash the party in a loud, loud way.

Miami freshman RB DeeJay Dallas ran for two touchdowns and 53 yards on 12 carries in a 41-8 thumping of Notre Dame on Saturday.

Dallas has been a running back for exactly a month, and in his first significant action at the position, he impressed. Both scores came from four yards in the second half, one to make it 34-0, and one to make it 41-8. Travis Homer is clearly the bellcow in the Miami offense right now, but Dallas could give them a strong 1-2 punch.

Miami (FL) sophomore RB Travis Homer ran for 146 yards on 18 carries in a 41-8 crushing of Notre Dame on Saturday.

When Hurricane star running back Mark Walton went down, there were questions about who could step up in the run game for Miami. We certainly have our answer. Homer was outstanding against Notre Dame, consistently finding holes and making it into the Irish secondary. He didn't score, and that's just about the only "negative" we can find in this effort. Miami is back. They take on Virginia next week.

Miami sophomore WR Dionte Mullins has decided to leave the football team.

Mullins (5'10/200) was suspended by Hurricanes' HC Mark Richt earlier this week, but instead has decided to leave the program. The former four-star recruit was not a factor in the Miami offense this season with only four catches. Assuming he doesn't transfer to an FCS program, he'll likely have to sit out a season.

Miami redshirt junior DE Demetrius Jackson will miss an extended period of time, including this week against Notre Dame, with a knee injury.

There is some speculation that Jackson could have knee surgery and be out the remainder of the season, but beat writer Matt Porter is not reporting that. Jackson works as the school's third defensive end and moves inside to rush the passer on third downs. In that role, Jackson has 3.5 sacks to his name this season.

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier completed just 10-of-21 passes with three interceptions, but threw two touchdowns and ran for for 84 yards in a 28-10 victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday.

Virginia Tech gave Rosier all sorts of trouble when he dropped back to pass in the secondary, but the offensive line and his ability to scramble created holes to allow him to make plays with his legs. His first touchdown pass was a dart to Braxton Berrios to make it 7-0 Hurricanes, and he found talented tight end Christopher Herndon for a 43-yard score to give Miami a 21-10 lead. This wasn't a bad game for Rosier, but he's going to have to play much better next week against Notre Dame to get a victory.
Nov 4 - 11:31 PM

Miami sophomore RB Travis Homer ran for 95 yards and a score on 14 carries in a 28-10 victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday.

On all but one carry, Homer (5'11/195) was held to 31 yards on 13 carries. That one carry was huge, however; a 64-yard burst into the end zone to give the Hurricanes a 14-3 lead. Outside of that run the talented sophomore was held in check by the tough Virginia Tech defense, but it was a huge play by Homer that set the tone for the rest of the game for the Hurricanes. Miami has a huge matchup next week against Notre Dame with playoff implications.

Virginia Tech beat writer Andy Bitter believes a main priority for the Hokies is to Miami's downfield passing production.

Miami's Ahmmon Richards is averaging over 20 yards per catch, as are Jeff Thomas and Darrell Langham on limited sample sizes. Bitter adds that Bud Foster's defense has limited teams to just 11.5 points per game, but their vertical defense might be their kryptonite.
Nov 4 - 10:42 AM

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier (shoulder) is not listed on the injury report for Saturday's game against Virginia Tech.

Rosier was briefly forced out of last Saturday's win over North Carolina after landing hard on his shoulder. He managed to return to that game, though, and has been practicing during the week. Barring a late setback, it appears he will be ready to roll for Saturday's big showdown with the Hokies. Rosier has thrown for 2,071 yards with a 17/4 TD/INT ratio over the course of seven games played this season.
Nov 2 - 2:31 PM

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier (shoulder) practiced on Tuesday.

Rosier landed hard on his shoulder early in Saturday's win over North Carolina, but managed to return to that contest after being examined in the locker room. The expectation, here, is that the redshirt junior will be able to play against Virginia Tech on Saturday, but Rosier's status is worth monitoring over the remainder of the practice week. In seven games this season, the 6-foot-1, 212-pounder has thrown for 2,071 yards (56.7% completions) with a 17/4 TD/INT ratio.

Miami HC Mark Richt expects redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier (shoulder) to return to practice on Tuesday.

Rosier, who suffered the injury in Saturday's 24-19 win over UNC, didn't throw during Sunday's practice. Richt said after the game that Rosier "dinged" his throwing shoulder before leaving for the locker room in the first quarter. Backup Evan Shirreffs entered for a short spell before Rosier returned to close out the game. Richt didn't believe Rosier's shoulder was the reason he struggled so badly against the Tar Heels. "I would say no," Richt said. "I would say no. Only he would know for sure and I don’t even know what he’d say. He certainly got it dinged up a little bit, so we weren’t sure what he could do. But after a little bit, he was able to start throwing again and feel comfortable." Miami has a huge game with No. 13 Virginia Tech this weekend.
Oct 30 - 3:43 PM

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier suffered a shoulder injury in Saturday's 24-19 win over UNC.

Per Canes HC Mark Richt, Rosier "dinged" his shoulder in the victory. His playing status for next Saturday's game against Virginia Tech should clarify over the course of the practice week. Evan Shirreffs would earn the start, there, if Rosier can't play.
Oct 28 - 5:57 PM

Miami freshman WR Jeff Thomas caught three passes for 101 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 24-19 win over UNC.

This was the freshman's season high in receptions and receiving yards. Head coach Mark Richt is really relying on quarterback Malik Rosier and Thomas might be emerging as his go-to downfield playmaker. His touchdown was a 78-yard score.
