Next up for Miami would be Mississippi. Rittenberg projects the 12th seeded rebels to upset Florida State in the vaunted 12-5 matchup that always produces upsets in the Men’s Basketball Tournament.

He puts aside that Ole’ Miss is on probation in real life. Citing that the Seminoles will have defensive issues Rittenberg gives Mississippi the nod to move on. Imagine the hype if somehow Miami and Florida State ever met in the postseason. For now, we can dream of a matchup between the two in the ACC Championship game.

"(4) Miami 41, (12) Ole Miss 24: Unlike in 2017, Miami begins to hit its stride down the stretch in 2018. Jaquan Johnson, Shaquille Quarterman and the rest of the Hurricanes’ defense subdues (wide receiver A.J.) Brown and a potent Rebels offense, while Perry fires three touchdown passes and Travis Homer rushes for two more."

Where is Lorenzo Lingard? Rittenberg seems to be projecting out that Homer hangs on to his starting running back role and continues to produce in the big games for Miami.

The Hurricanes advance to the regional semifinals. You would have to think in this scenario the games are played at neutral sites. Imagine four doubleheaders like in basketball.
