Start planning your tailgate for Savannah State. Tigers lost first 2 games by combined score 143-12

Be assured that the No. 15 Hurricanes will be too busy working on themselves the next couple of weeks to get a cocky attitude about Savannah State, their next opponent.

 Miami (2-0) has off this Saturday, but returns to Sun Life Stadium at 7 p.m. Sept. 21 against the FCS Tigers.

Here's pretty much all you need to know about the Tigers:

* They lost 66-3 against FBS-team Troy this past weekend. Troy (2-0) passed for six touchdowns and ran for another two. Troy also scored on a field goal and 78-yard interception return.

* They lost 77-9 in their opener against fellow FCS-team Georgia Southern.

* They finished 1-10 in 2012.

Suffice it to say that a lot of backups will get playing time against Savannah State, and the Hurricanes' passing game should dramatically improve.

The game will not be shown on TV. ESPN3 will show the game online.

Will the fans show up at Sun Life? I think they will, but I'm an optimist. If nothing else, it should be a good night to party and watch some Hurricane future stars get ample playing time.

No matter what kind of team Savannah State has, Al Golden will get his players ready to roll in this one.
