Movin' On Up: Football Continues Top 10 Climb
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – After improving to 6-0 for the first time since 2004, the Miami Hurricanes are now No. 7 in the latest AP Top 25 and No. 6 in the USA TODAY Sports Coaches polls released Sunday.
Both rankings are Miami’s highest since the Hurricanes were ranked No. 3 in both polls for the week of Nov. 13, 2005.
Miami cracked the top 10 of the coaches poll for the first time since Oct. 18, 2009, when it was ranked No. 9.
Miami (6-0, 2-0 ACC) extended its winning streak to eight games with a 27-23 road win Oct. 17 at North Carolina. Miami’s eight-game winning streak is its longest since winning 10 straight over the 2003 and 2004 seasons (final four of 2003, first six of 2004).
The Hurricanes will look for their first 7-0 start since the 2003 season when they host Wake Forest (4-3, 2-2 ACC) at noon Oct. 26 on ESPNU. Fewer than 7,000 tickets remain for Miami’s Oct. 26 home game vs. Wake Forest, which is also UM Employee Day.
