With a rather sparse crowd at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens and the audience watching on ESPNU, the University of Miami Hurricanes beat the Bethune-Cookman University Wildcats 45-14. Sure, the score appears to have been a butt-whipping but it does not depict the play of both teams during the game.
There was an expectation that UM would totally dominate and decimate BCU but that was not the case. Cookman started out with a lot of energy and actually owned the game during the first quarter. The Canes slowly gained momentum and came up with the win. It was an ugly win but a win nonetheless.
As a die-hard Rattler, I must give Bethune credit for representing the MEAC well. The FAMU-BCU trash-talking will definitely advance to another level until the Florida Classic on November 19 in Orlando. Stay tuned.
