LSU vs Miami 2018: Time, TV/live stream info, and pick prediction,
The No. 8 Miami Hurricanes will see an early test in the form of the No. 25 LSU Tigers on Sunday.

LSU vs Miami

The Week 1 college football matchup will be played from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC (live streaming via WatchESPN, ABC).

Miami started last season by rattling off 10 consecutive wins, but they faltered down the stretch, losing their regular-season finale in addition to the ACC Championship game and the Orange Bowl. The Tigers scraped together a 3-2 record before winning six of their last seven but also fell well short of expectations a year ago.

Now both hope to be in the national picture and the College Football Playoff this time around. Both teams have a big opportunity to make a statement on Sunday.

LSU vs. Miami news:

LSU cornerback Kristian Fulton has been reinstated by the NCAA and will be available to play in Week 1:

Fulton will almost assuredly slide directly into the starting cornerback role opposite of Greedy Williams, as had been expected when his suspension was originally upheld two weeks ago. Fulton was originally suspended for two years for attempting to use fake urine in an NCAA drug test, before pouring it out and using his own when caught. A drug test that he ultimately passed.

Miami defensive coordinator Manny Diaz talked about Sunday’s game, and noted that the Hurricanes will be focused on stopping the LSU running game, forcing Ohio State graduate transfer Joe Burrow to throw the ball.
Malik Rosier is the Miami starting quarterback against the Tigers, the team revealed with their official depth chart release. Burrow is starting for LSU, though it wouldn’t be surprising to see sophomore Myles Brennan see some action.
Mark Pope figures to be a big factor for the Hurricanes this season, but the receiver hasn’t yet earned the trust of his coaches, so he is not one of the starters. Not yet, anyway.
The folks at And The Valley Shook put together a nice preview for the game and what to look out for on Sunday.

How far away are they both?

LSU vs Miami

Both the Tigers and Hurricanes are used to national attention and contending for championships, but neither team is really sure where they are right now, and won’t be until the game gets underway on Sunday. Mark Richt seems to have Miami going in the right direction, but we really won’t know too much about them until they see the field on Sunday and battle in what is probably a College Football Playoff eliminator.
LSU vs Miami prediction:

Miami has a projected S&P+ ranking of 17 even, with LSU sitting at 14.2, meaning the Hurricanes would have a 2.8-point advantage on a neutral field. That’s close to where the betting lines opened, and though it will be close, Miami is simply the smarter pick.
