Football Checks In At No. 17 in Both Major Polls
CORAL GABLES, Fla. — The Miami Hurricanes continued their upward climb in both major college football polls released Sunday.
Despite not playing a game with their bye week scheduled for Week 5, the Hurricanes – who have been ranked in each of the last four sets of polls – jumped one spot to No. 17 in both the Associated Press Top 25 and US LBM Coaches Poll released Oct. 1.
The Hurricanes (4-0, 0-0 ACC) were ranked No. 18 in both polls last week. Miami returns home to Hard Rock Stadium on Oct. 7 for their first conference clash of the fall against Georgia Tech (2-3, 1-1 ACC). Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. on ACC Network.
“Certainly you want to use the bye week to get healthy, but you want to use the bye week to get better. There’s a balance there,” head coach Mario Cristobal said following Miami’s 41-7 win over Temple on Sept. 23. “You want to self-scout to see what you’re doing, where your tendencies are, make sure you can evolve as an offense and defense and find the things you need to work on.”
