How to watch Syracuse vs Miami in a Week 8 matchup.

The undefeated No. 8 Miami Hurricanes (5-0) host a Syracuse team coming off a massive upset of Clemson at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday. 

Miami is creeping into the College Football Playoff conversation after a miracle 25-24 victory over Georgia Tech. In that game last week, Michael Badgley took advantage of a fortuitous bounce to come up with a fourth-down catch that set up a 24-yard field goal with four seconds remaining to keep the U's perfect season alive. Miami sits atop the ACC's Coastal division with a 3-0 conference record, and junior quarterback Malik Rosier (1,371 yards, 12 touchdowns, 3 interceptions) has been terrific. 

Syracuse is coming off its biggest win in years, shocking then-No. 2 Clemson last Thursday night behind an up-tempo offense that ran the ball effectively all night long. It's been an up-and-down season for the Orange, who lost at home to Middle Tennessee State in the second game of the year, but Dino Babers' Baylor-inspired offense is beginning to click after a slow start to the season. A second-consecutive win over a top-ten team would be massive for a program looking to challenge the ACC's elite.
