What Tech fans need to know about Miami

Record: 1-0, 1-0 Coastal Division

TV/radio: ESPN/106.7 FM, 790 AM

Last time played: 41-23 win by Georgia Tech in 2008 at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Last week: Georgia Tech defeated Clemson, 30-27; Miami defeated Florida State, 38-34, on Sept. 7.

Miami on offense: The Hurricanes revolve around quarterback Jacory Harris, whose performance against FSU was one for the ages: 386 yards passing and two touchdowns. The receiver to watch is Travis Benjamin, who caught four passes for 128 yards and one touchdown. The running game was ineffective, gaining just 90 yards with no one rushing for more than 38 yards.

Miami on defense: The Hurricanes don't need to be reminded of the 400-plus yards Tech had rushing in last year's game. Clemson gave teams an idea how to take away one facet of Tech's offense by slanting the defensive tackles into the center and guards on every play. Miami's two defensive tackles, Allen Bailey and Marcus Forston, had two tackles last week.

What you need to know: Miami safety Randy Phillips said that the Hurricanes didn't spend any time in spring practices working on defending the option but the Hurricanes will have had 10 days since their last game to prepare.

What you may not know: The Hurricanes have had 46 players selected in the first round of the NFL draft since 1984. The Jackets have had three during the same period.
