. You'd have to go back to the Larry Coker era when the Hurricanes defeated Nevada in the 2006 MPC Computers Bowl. Last season, they lost to South Carolina, 24-21, as -3 favorites. And the year before that they were woodshedded by Louisville, 36-9. Miami is currently a +3 underdog for its Sun Bowl matchup vs. Washington State. Note that the Cougs are also hungry to get into the bowl win column. They've been to the postseason once since 2003; a 48-45 loss to Colorado State in the 2013 New Mexico Bowl.
"We have to change that, definitely. It looks bad for our bowl record," quarterback Brad Kaaya said of the Hurricanes' postseason losing streak.
"We've just got to change it this game. I mean, that's the plan right now. … Miami's been known in the past for winning big games and postseason games. We have to bring that tradition back and hopefully, this starts it off for the next however many decades."
