Miami’s ability to compete is largely reliant on star QB D’eriq King. After going 7-2 over the regular season, King announced he’d be playing in the teams’ bowl game and returning to Miami next season.
In the Cheez-It bowl against Oklahoma State, King suffered a torn ACL. Miami is optimistic that King will be back for the start of next season. If he is, Miami will pick up right where they left off.
