After a heartbreaking loss in the 2020 Cheez-It Bowl with quarterback D’Eriq King tearing his ACL, the Miami Hurricanes begin the 2021 season in Atlanta against defending National Champion Alabama. The torn ACL for King came days after he announced his return for the 2021 season.

Miami Hurricanes fans feared that they may never see King in the green and orange following his injury. King is back with the Canes after an offseason of hard work rehabilitating his knee. Miami returns 19 starters in 2020 looking for vengeance in 2021.

We all watched the Alabama Crimson Tide run up the score on Ohio State back in January, capturing their sixth national title under legendary coach Nick Saban. Wide receiver Devonta Smith was wide open consistently and quarterback Mac Jones threw touchdown after TD.

Alabama got ahead early in the second quarter against Ohio State and never looked back. The Crimson Tide won the National Championship 52-24. The 2020 college football season is completed and Alabama looks forward to new beginnings in 2021.

With Jones in New England, Najee Harris in Pittsburgh, Smith in Philly, and numerous other Alabama stars set to start their NFL careers, it is Bryce Young, a five-star prospect from California who looks to carry the Crimson Tide back to the top. The game against Alabama is certainly going to be tough for the Miami Hurricanes.

Year in and year out the Crimson Tide flex their muscles on their opponents, showing why they are widely considered one of the greatest college football programs of all time. But there are a few things that the Canes can do if they want to take down the Goliath that is Alabama.
