College football: Week 11 preview
MIAMI (5-4, 4-2 ACC) at VIRGINIA (3-6, 1-4)
Where: Scott Stadium, Charlottesville, Va.
TV/radio: Chs. 7, 2, 570 AM
Outlook: Miami leads series 5-4, though Virginia is 2-0 against the Hurricanes under coach Mike London. The Cavaliers continue to cling to slim bowl hopes after a 33-6 pounding of N.C. State last week. If Virginia is to spring another surprise, another unexpected day of takeaways would help. The Cavaliers had forced four turnovers all season before managing five against the Wolfpack. Miami can secure a play in the ACC title game (assuming it doesn’t self-impose a bowl ban in anticipation of harsh NCAA sanctions) for the first time with victories over Virginia and Duke to close conference play.
MARYLAND (4-5, 2-3 ACC) at No. 10 CLEMSON (8-1, 5-1)
Where: Memorial Stadium, Clemson, S.C.
TV/radio: ESPNU, 980 AM
Outlook: Clemson leads series 32-26-2 and has won back-to-back meetings for the first time since 2004-05. The Terrapins are coming off their worst game of the season, a 33-13 loss in which the offense predictably struggled with converted linebacker Shawn Petty at quarterback and the defense allowed 400 yards for the first time this year. The Tigers, who churned out 718 total yards last week against Duke, rank ninth in the nation in total offense. Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd is 43 of 61 for 772 yards and 10 touchdowns over his last two games. Maryland coach Randy Edsall is 1-20 in his career against ranked teams.
NAVY (6-3) at TROY (4-5)
Where: Veterans Memorial Stadium, Troy, Ala.
TV/radio: ESPN3.com, 1500 AM, 1050 AM
Outlook: Navy leads series 1-0, a 42-14 victory last season in Annapolis. The Midshipmen are seeking their first single-season six-game winning streak since starting 6-0 in 1979. Freshman quarterback Keenan Reynolds has accounted for 14 touchdowns and one turnover during the last five games, including eight passing touchdowns. The Trojans are coming off a 721-yard effort in a 55-48 loss at Tennessee. Navy is 6-0 all-time against members of the Sun Belt, including last week’s triumph against Florida Atlantic.
