Miami_Hurricanes_Duke_2012 [2]CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — The 2013 Miami Hurricanes, unlike some of their predecessors, do not seem to particularly crave attention.

But Thursday night, just past sunset in the cool, rolling hills of an area known as The Research Triangle, that’s exactly what they’ll get.

Lots of it.

The No. 10 Hurricanes (5-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) will put their perfect record on the line against — at least until now — an underperforming North Carolina team (1-4, 0-2) in front of a national television audience and slew of NFL scouts at Kenan Memorial Stadium.

It’s the only college game that night, and Kenan has been a place of nightmares before for the Canes, who watched the goalposts get torn down by jubilant Tar Heel fans after UNC shocked the 6-0 and then-No. 4 Canes on a last-second field goal in 2004.
