The Miami Hurricanes Football Team is back in the Top 10 AP Polls after thumping Georgia Tech 33 – 17. Their first home game and against a higher ranking team. The Miami Hurricanes proved that they’re a force to be reckoned with in 2009 with 2 back to back wins.
If Georgia Tech, ranked 14th in the polls, thought they could blow past Miami as they did last year, they were dead wrong. This Hurricanes Football Team means business. The Canes totally stopped the Yellow Jacket’s running game. Georgia could only muster a 95 total yards of running game through out the match.
The win puts Miami at the top of the ACC Coastal Division Table. Having already played 2 games against ACC teams and winning them both. Miami is certainly looking like the best bet to capture the ACC title this time around.

Beating 2 higher ranked teams have also put Miami back into the Top 10 of the AP Polls. The latest AP poll results has Miami at No.9. The Canes, however is ranked at No 13 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. That’s a pretty high jump, considering that the Hurricanes were not even ranked the week before.
It’s been quite a while since Miami enjoyed a Top Ten position in the polls. The last time Miami was in the Top 10 was in 2005. They were ranked 9th that year in both polls.
Will Miami continue their winning ways against ACC teams? Up next for the Canes is No. 11 Virginia Tech. Three ACC games in a row for Miami to start off this season. The game has been set to kickoff at 3.30pm, September 26th at Virginia.
Another ACC game against a ranked team. Another win here will certainly put the Canes higher up in the rankings. Are we looking at the Top 5 in the polls? Should we dream of an all Florida Championship Bowl game at the end of the season?
Perhaps it is still way too early to know. No harm in wishing it, right?
The season is only 3 weeks old now. The road to the Championship Bowl is still very far and winding. Lets just hope that this year’s Hurricanes can stand the distance. Nevertheless, this 2009 Miami Hurricanes Football Team is certainly becoming the talk of the town at the moment.
It’s Hurricane Season Y’All!!
