This Cardiac Canes thriller makes ESPN list for top 2017 college football games

Despite the outcome of the last two games, overall it’s been an exciting season for the Miami Hurricanes.

Miami is 10-2 overall and won the ACC Coastal division for the first time in program history.

Along the way, The U earned the moniker of being the Cardiac Canes for their ability to pull out tight victories.

That reputation began on Oct. 7 in Tallahassee when Miami snapped a seven-game losing streak to Florida State by rallying for a 24-20 victory.

On ESPN’s list for the top games of the 2017 college football season, Miami’s win at FSU checked in at No. 11.

11. No. 13 Miami 24, Florida State 20 (Oct. 7)
In a game rescheduled following a hurricane, Miami receiver Darrell Langham hauled in a 23-yard touchdown pass along the sidelines with six seconds left, giving the Hurricanes the dramatic comeback victory over their stumbling rival.

The complete list can be found here.

Following the victory over the Seminoles, the magic continued as Miami won the next three games over Georgia Tech, Syracuse and North Carolina by a combined 14 points.

Miami will face Wisconsin on Dec. 30 in the Orange Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium.
