So are the Hurricanes officially “back?’

As of now, it is too early to say, however, the last time that Miami beat a ranked team was in 2011 during the Randy Shannon era.  The Hurricanes knocked off No. 22 Georgia Tech, 24-7, at Sun Life Stadium.

The last time that Miami beat a team ranked in the top 15 also came against Georgia Tech.  Led by QB Jacory Harris, the Hurricanes throttled the No. 14 Jackets, 33-17.

Miami has not been ranked in the AP Poll since finishing the 2009 season with a 9-4 record.  That year, the Hurricanes topped out at No. 19.
