2. Beleaguered sixth-year head coach Larry Coker is 55-11 (.833) at Miami. Following the Hurricanes' 14-13 win over Houston last Saturday, he moved into third-place on the school's all-time win list. Prior to his assistant duties at Miami, Coker served as a defensive backs coach for two seasons at Ohio State. From 1990-92, he was the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma.
4. In his first career start, tailback Javarris James – nicknamed "Baby J" – set a Miami freshman record with 148 rushing yards and a touchdown against the Cougars last week. The performance also set a school mark for the most yards in a first career game.
5. Senior safety Brandon Meriweather is a preseason All-America candidate, after leading the Hurricanes last season in tackles (114), solo tackles (76), tackles for loss (13) and tied for the team lead in interceptions (3).
6. Since 1990, Miami is 113-10 (.919) against unranked opponents.
8. Place-kicker Jon Peattie is ranked fifth on Miami's all-time scoring list with 287 points. In over three seasons, he has connected on 53 field goals.
9. Seven of senior wide receiver Darnell Jenkins' 13 receptions this year have been for third-down conversions. He's currently ranked second on the team with 183 yards receiving after missing last week's game with an injury.
10. Since Coker took over at Coral Gables, the Hurricanes have scored 16 special teams touchdowns, though have yet to record one this season. In last year's game against UNC, Miami blocked a Tar Heel punt for a TD.
