Few could have imagined this scenario coming into Saturday’s University of Miami football game at home against Syracuse: a top-10 Hurricanes team after back-to-back, last-second victories over Florida State and Georgia Tech, facing the unranked Orange after an awe-inspiring upset over defending national champion Clemson.
