Defense looking much better for No. 16 Miami

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - At this time last year, the Miami Hurricanes were bad on defense and the numbers would only get worse.

So far this season, things look much better.

Miami is improved against the run, better on third-down and simply just keeping teams off the scoreboard with far more regularity than it did last season. And even though two games is not enough of a sample size to conclude that whatever plagued the 16th-ranked Hurricanes on defense last season is fixed, though season-opening wins over Florida Atlantic and Florida provided encouraging signs.

With Savannah State visiting this weekend, the Hurricanes think it's another chance to further show progress.
