What would a Miami Hurricanes playoff team in 2018 look like? How would they set up? Could Miami and Clemson have a rematch in the ACC Championship game? ESPN has some interesting projections.

Adam Rittenberg wrote the article for the Mothership. He projects Miami to be a four seed in the East Region. Stanford, USC and Mississippi State are the other teams on the four line. Clemson is the one seed in the East. They are the only ACC team ahead of Miami. Not surprisingly, Alabama. Georgia and Ohio State are the other top seeds.

Miami’s would open the first round against UCLA. Rittenberg didn’t specify where the games will be played. Presumably at home sites.

"“(4) Miami 39, (13) UCLA 27: By this point in the season, Chip Kelly’s offense should be not only watchable but really fun. Still, Miami’s defense is far too talented to cave in, especially up front. The Canes use last year’s poor finish as fuel and get big lifts from quarterback N’Kosi Perry and wideout Ahmmon Richards.”"

It’s interesting that Rittenberg projects Perry to give the Hurricanes “a big lift”. He doesn’t mention when Perry would take over the reigns at Quarterback from Malik Rosier.
