THE SKINNY: Playing in the epitome of a look-ahead game with Florida State looming, Miami50-point favoritesput in a second consecutive lackluster performance. It took Ed Reed intercepting a Brock Nutter pass and returning it 27 yards for a touchdown on the second play of the third quarter--giving the Hurricanes a 24-7 lead--for UM to get clear of the Trojans. QUOTABLE: I don't care what people think about this team. You can't control those things. It's going to be a tough season when you play for a national championship. Right tackle Joaquin Gonzalez PICTURED: Left tackle Bryant McKinnie shows off his arms' incredible reach in protecting Ken Dorsey.
