In NCAA Football game, we will see Miami Florida at Wisconsin.
Miami’s defense is one of the best in the country. They gave up just 268.1 yards per game and 140.8 passing yards to lead the nation. The offense, however, struggled in certain games and it did not live up to the defense’s expectations. The offense is led by running back Travis Homer who has 969 yards and an average of 6.3 yards per carry. QB N’Kose Perry is completing 51.6% of his passes for 1089 yards with 13 touchdowns and 5 interceptions.
Wisconsin had QB issues all year long and they haven’t got 2 consecutive wins since early in the season. In recent weeks, they turned to senior QB Alex Hornibrook in their home loss to Minnesota, 37-15 where he had 2 touchdowns passes and 3 interceptions. Hornibrook has 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on the year. They are a heavy-run offense with Johnathan Taylor leading the way with 1989 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Both teams met again last year in a bowl game with Hornibrook having a great game, passing for 258 yards and 4 touchdowns against a similar Miami defense. He has played great against Miami overall and I expect this to continue even with a struggling offense.
