No. 16 Miami a big favorite against Savannah State

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Those inclined to place a wager on the Miami-Savannah State game are dealing with a most unusual situation.

Miami, giving 60 points.

That's the spread posted in some sports books this week, and it's almost unfathomable considering that the 16th-ranked Hurricanes didn't score 60 points in their first two games combined this season - not to mention haven't scored that many in any game since 2001, some 139 contests ago.

But given Savannah State's history, it's also hard to fathom anyone not really expecting a blowout.

The Tigers have given up at least 66 points twice already this season. They lost 84-0 to Oklahoma State last year, as well as 55-0 to Florida State, and that game was cut short just after halftime because of lightning.
