Miami A Huge Favorite Versus Savannah State

Miami_2013MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Those inclined to place a wager on the Miami-Savannah State game are dealing with a most unusual situation.

Miami, giving 60 points.

That's the spread posted in some sports books this week, and it's almost unfathomable considering that the 16th-ranked Hurricanes didn't score 60 points in their first two games combined this season not to mention haven't scored that many in any game since 2001, some 139 contests ago.

But given Savannah State's history, it's also hard to fathom anyone not really expecting a blowout.

The Tigers have given up at least 66 points twice already this season. They lost 84-0 to Oklahoma State last year, as well as 55-0 to Florida State, and that game was cut short just after halftime because of lightning.
