Miami (1-1) at Texas A&M (1-1), 3:30 EST, ABC
Why to watch: A couple of major programs seeking an identity will hook up for the second time in as many years. In Florida last September, Miami doubled up Texas A&M, 34-17, helped partially to a strange Aggie game plan that ignored RB Jorvorskie Lane, who was the team's hot back at the time. This is a much different 'Cane program, a younger program trying to recapture the glory days with a roster that's littered with talented freshmen and sophomores. In its first big test of the year, Miami got outclassed by Florida, 26-3, but earned high marks for the play of the defense. The coaching staff is calling the loss a building block that can pay dividends over the next three months. The Aggies are off to a rocky start in Mike Sherman's first season, dropping a stunner to Arkansas State and nearly getting picked off by New Mexico. The Aggies are adjusting slowly to Sherman's new pro-style attack and have been hindered by injuries to QB Stephen McGee and RB Mike Goodson.
Why Miami might win: The Hurricane defense may be young, but it's very fast and getting better with each passing week. In the game with Florida, it held the high-powered Gator offense to just one touchdown. Athletic linebackers Colin McCarthy, Darryl Sharpton, and Sean Spence will add to the Aggies' woes on offense, especially if McGee and Goodson are less than 100%. A&M has been awful stopping the run, which will lead to a career day for Graig Cooper, who'll get more reps now that Javarris James is injured.
Why Texas A&M might win: Until proven otherwise, Miami will have problems winning on the road with inexperienced quarterbacks. Freshmen Robert Marve and Jacory Harris managed to complete just 12-of-22 for 79 yards and no touchdowns in Gainesville, allowing the Gators to key on the Hurricane running backs. The Aggies will use the same blueprint, daring Miami to beat them through the air. Jordan Pugh and Jordan Peterson are a couple of physical defensive backs who'll keep the young 'Cane receivers from making plays without getting tagged.
Who to watch: With a game under his belt, Marve should take the next step in his progression as the quarterback of the future in Miami. Playing in the Swamp is an unfair debut for any freshman quarterback, but navigating the Texas A&M defense won't be nearly as demanding. The 'Canes need a threat from the passing game to open things up for the rest of the offense.
What will happen: The speed and intensity of the Miami defense will be too much for a Texas A&M offense in transition. The 'Canes will also get a huge day from Cooper, who'll rush for 150 yards and two scores, sending the Aggies to an 0-2 start at Kyle Field
CFN Prediction: Miami 27 ... Texas A&M 20 ... Line: Miami -4

The offense better show up. Shields and AJ will be starting at wideout, Shields better take advantage cause homeboy is running out of chances.

The D played well last game but the secondary lookin suspect as hell, DVD stays lookin scared. Sadly young Harris already looking like the best CB on the squad.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Last year against Texas A&M wide receiver Sam Shields had a career game.

Shields caught six passes for 117 yards with a long reception of 51 yards.

With the struggles Miami faced in the passing game against Florida the UM offense could use some of the big play ability Shields displayed in last year's game.

Shields feels confident more opportunities will come for big plays in the passing game this week and that the receivers will capitalize on those plays.

"When I get the opportunity to get in there and do what I am supposed to do, I am going to do my job," Shields said.

"We have only played two games and a lot more opportunities are going to come. We just have to be patient and it is going to come and when it does come we will make those big plays."

Shields said that the offense and the passing game was able to work out some of the kinks during the bye week this last week. During the week, Shields says the wide receivers went through intensive film study time and they now understand what needs to be corrected.

"It gave us a lot more opportunities to work on what we are supposed to be working on with fixing the things that need to be fixed," Shields said. "Things that get fixed by just watching film and doing all the extra stuff."

"You have to go out and do the extra stuff like catch more balls after practice and watch a lot more film, not just when it is meeting time. You have to go in there and watch more film on your own."

According to Shields there has been plenty of big pass plays from the offense during practice and he expects the good practices to translate to the game this week.

"There is a lot of big plays," Shields said. "We just have to go out there and execute them. When the big plays are called, we have to go out there and make the plays."

This year Shields has totaled 21 yards on two catches. If he can put together the same type of game he had last year against Texas A&M, that would go a long way towards strengthening UM's passing game.

"I don't really focus on what I did last year because that is not going to help me to do what I am supposed to do this Saturday," Shields said. "We just have to go out and execute the plays and everything will come on its own."

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Senior reserve offensive tackle Chris Rutledge will start at guard this week against Texas A&M.

Coach Randy Shannon did not specify whether Rutledge will start in place of left guard Orlando Franklin or right guard Joel Figueroa.

"Orlando is doing good, not great. We always want to be great," Shannon said. "Fig is doing good, not great. So what we do is put in the next best experienced guy--Rutledge and put him inside. He's doing well and he's going to start this week at guard."

Shannon is hoping the move will help the offense--ranked 105th in the country--especially with starting tailback Javarris James out with an injury.

"The coaches are putting us in the best position to win and they want the best five guys up front," Rutledge said. "If that means we have to switch positions in order for us to win, that's what we are going to do."

Rutledge, a 6-foot-5, 310-pound fifth-year senior, has played in 30 career games, making nine starts and has played primarily at right tackle. He has been the team's third tackle the past two seasons rotating in with LT Jason Fox and RT Reggie Youngblood.

He practiced at playing left and right guard this week.

"I'm looking forward to my first game action there this week," Rutledge said.

Miami (1-1) is looking to turn around their road misfortunes this week at Texas A&M (1-1) as they are 1-8 in their last nine road games.

"There's no reason we have struggled on the road," Rutledge said. "You have good days and you have bad days. Football is football, no matter where you play it."

A road win against the Aggies would help this team heading into ACC play with road games at Duke, Virginia, Georgia Tech, and N.C. State.

Websites: Miami () and Texas A&M ()

THE GAME

? Miami comes off a bye week and takes to the road for the second time this season traveling to College Station, Texas to face Texas A&M in a regionally-televised game. It will be the Hurricanes' first trip to Kyle Field.

? The Hurricanes look to bounce back after falling to then No. 5 Florida, 26-3, on the road in "The Swamp." Miami held Florida to nine points through the first three quarters before the Gators scored 17 points in the final 13 minutes. UM's defense limited UF to just 89 yards rushing.

? Redshirt freshman quarterback Robert Marve will make his second collegiate start on the road against the Aggies. Marve completed 10-of-18 passes for 69 yards in his first start at Florida.

? The Hurricanes and the Aggies both enter the contest 1-1. In two games, Miami has scored 55 total points while the Aggies have put up 42 points. UM will likely be without the services of junior running back Javarris James, who suffered a high ankle sprain against Florida. Sophomore Graig Cooper has gained 53 yards on 19 carries.

THE OPPONENT

? Texas A&M also enjoyed a bye week fresh off a 28-22 win at New Mexico two Saturdays ago. Backup quarterback Jerrod Johnson completed 10-of-19 passes for 124 yards and threw three touchdown passes and the Aggie defense held off a fourth quarter rally in A&M's first win of the season.

? Quarterback Stephen McGee has completed 68.8 percent of his passes going 22-of-32 for 190 yards in the first two games. Mike Goodson is the leading rusher with 133 yards (4.4 yards per rush) on 30 carries and two TD's. RS Freshman receiver Ryan Tannehill has caught eight passes for 116 yards.

? Defensively, the Aggies are led by linebacker Matt Featherston with a team-high 25 tackles and defensive lineman Michael Bennett with 17 tackles.

THE SERIES

? The all-time series between the Hurricanes and the Aggies is tied, 1-1. Texas A&M won the first meeting between the two schools in 1944 with a 70-14 win in the Orange Bowl but the Hurricanes returned the favor last season with a 34-17 win on a Thursday night ESPN game in Miami on Sept. 20.

THE COACHES

? Randy Shannon is 6-8 and is in his second season at Miami. Texas A&M's Mike Sherman is 1-1 in his first season with the Aggies.

RETURNING HOME

? Five current UM players will have a homecoming of sorts when the `Canes head to College Station, Texas this weekend. Senior OL Tyrone Byrd (Sugar Land), freshman QB/P Taylor Cook (Eagle Lake), junior OT Jason Fox (Fort Worth), sophomore RB Shawnbrey McNeal (Dallas) and senior OT Reggie Youngblood (Houston) all hail from the state of Texas and most will be playing in their first collegiate game inside the Lonestar State on Saturday. Byrd, Cook and Youngblood will be the closest to home, with Houston, Eagle Lake and Sugar Land all about 100 miles from College Station. Fox and McNeal, both from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, will be playing about 175 miles from home.

STRONG START FOR UM's RUNNING BACKS

? The University of Miami has developed a reputation as one of the top rushing teams nationally in recent years and this year appears to be no different. Through the season's first two games, Miami is out-rushing its opponents 285-to-138 on the ground while its top four performers in terms of all-purpose yards gained are running backs. Sophomore Graig Cooper leads the team with 134 all-purpose yards (53 - rush, 81 - punt return), followed by junior Javarris James (77 - rush, 11 - receiving), senior Derron Thomas (57 - rush, 19 receiving) and sophomore Shawnbrey McNeal (47 - rush). All four of the top gainers - Cooper, James, Thomas and McNeal - have scored a rushing touchdown this season while Cooper also has a 66-yard punt return for a touchdown.

YOUNG'S IMMEDIATE INFLUENCE

? New defensive coordinator Bill Young has the UM defense off to a strong start through the first two games in 2008. Traditionally known for having one of the most athletically talented defenses nationally, Miami appears to have regained some of its success Hurricanes' fans have become accustomed to the last three decades. Through UM's first two games this season, the Hurricanes rank sixth nationally in first downs allowed per game (12), 21st in rushing yards allowed per game (69.0) and 18th in total defense (235.50 ypg). The `Canes, after holding Charleston Southern to just 126 total yards of offense in the opener, shut down the fifth-ranked Gators' ground attack in Gainesville, holding 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow and the UF running game to just 89 rushing yards on 27 carries (3.29 ypc). In fact, the Miami defense held a strong Gators offense to just 18.85 yards per drive on UF's first seven drives of the contest.

DID YOU KNOW?

? Of the 23 seniors on this year's squad, 13 have already earned degrees, while the remaining 10 are all on course to graduate either in December of 2008 or May of 2009.

? Last spring, the NCAA released its annual Academic Progress Report (APR) and the Hurricane football team scored a 969, the eighth-highest mark out of the 119 Bowl Sub-division football programs. Miami's score - also the third-highest mark in the 12-team Atlantic Coast Conference - put the team in the 80th-90th percentile nationally based on its performance in the classroom.

? Matt Bosher's 50-yard field goal at Florida was Miami's first 50-yarder since Jon Peattie kicked a 55-yarder in 2006 against Virginia Tech.

Marve is the fu*kin man, period. Dude looks like a vet out there. JH will be a star but the nicca needs to wait his turn right now.

The CB posiiton looking suspect still, guys is way too open. UNC has two real good wideouts, so I dont like that matchup.

Our run starts now!
