100 Greatest Plays In Miami History: #32-Vinny Testaverde Scramble Against Oklahoma 1986

Vinny scrambled right, and then left, barely escaping with his jersey. The 1986 Miami Hurricanes were one of the finest teams in school history, and perhaps their best moment of that season came in week-four, when the #1 Oklahoma Sooners invaded the Orange Bowl. Miami, led by quarterback, and Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde, jumped all over Brian Bosworth and the Sooners early. Early in the game with the score still 0-0, Vinny gave college football fans, and Miami fans especially, a play and a moment that we’ll never forget. Later on that drive, following that remarkable...

KJ Osborn looks to lead the Miami Wide Receiving Corps. Senior Leadership will lead the way for a strong receiving corps. This week we’ll take a look at the Wide Receiver position group. This is a relatively deep position for the Miami Hurricanes with 9 scholarship receivers on the roster.

Miami Hurricanes 2019 Player Profile: Nesta Silvera

Photo by Mark Brown/ Can the sophomore grab a starting spot on the defensive line? In 2019, Miami will have a Gerald Willis-sized hole in the middle of the defensive line - and no clear heir to it. Pat Bethel and Jon Ford are the two upperclassmen defensive linemen and will likely get a fair shot to earn the two defensive tackle spots. But neither of them has the size, or potential, of sophomore DT Nesta Jade Silvera. Silvera is the prototypical nose tackle; a stout, space-eating lineman with the ability to act as a two-gap anchor and make life easier for his teammates. Silvera joined...
