Description: The Hurricanes were supposed to be rebuilding in 1987. Reloading was more accurate. This Miami team was supposed be the lull before the storm of 1988 and 1989. After all, Jimmy Johnson’s Hurricanes had lost five starters on offense from a team that had come within a whisper of a national title in 1985 and a 1986 squad that was considered among the best ever, only to lose its title shot in the Fiesta Bowl. But this team was more offensively balanced than the previous season’s juggernaut and, with nine starters returning to an underrated defense, the Canes were a more well-rounded team altogether. Ranked 10th in the preseason AP rankings, this team quickly showed it would be better than advertised. Miami ripped rival Florida in the season opener, then embarrassed Arkansas on the Razorbacks’ home field. The season’s third game was a classic as UM trailed fourth-ranked Florida State, 19-3, late in the third quarter before launching one of its greatest comebacks. The Canes scored three lightning-quick touchdowns and stopped an FSU two-pointer at the end to hold for a 26-25 victory. There seemed to be no stopping Miami after that. The Canes rolled through the remainder of the regular season, blanking 10th-ranked Notre Dame (24-0) and surviving a scare from eighth-ranked South Carolina (20-16) to set up a matchup with top-ranked Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl on New Year’s Day. The Canes bottled up OU’s wishbone attack, holding the Sooners to just 179 yards on the ground in a 20-14 victory. It was Miami’s third win over the Sooners in three years – OU’s only three losses during that span – and earned the Canes their second national championship.
