Fifth ranked Missouri was pretty good, but they lost to #21 South Carolina on an unlucky bounce off the crossbar in double overtime at home.
Tenth ranked Texas Tech was undefeated and looking pretty good going into their game against Oklahoma before they lost to Big Game Bob and his 15th ranked Sooners. So then another one had bitten the dust.
Virginia Tech was ranked 14th and playing at home in beautiful Blacksburg against the basketball school known as Duke and Beamer's boys lost by an unlucky 13 points. So VT is clearly not lucky or good.
Miami was playing at Sun Life Stadium on a picture perfect day when lowly Wake Forest showed up and tried to ruin it for the Hurricanes. Luckily for Miami they would get lucky even when they were not good.
Miami certainly did not play well but apparently it is better to be lucky than good and on this Saturday in October the luck was on Miami's side and the Hurricanes pulled off another last minute win to be Wake 24-21.
Now with a little more luck, the Hurricanes could move as high as #5 or #6 in the BCS standings come Sunday or Monday. Better to be lucky than good?
Unfortunately, Miami's luck may run out when they have to travel to Tallahassee to take on the really good and really lucky second ranked Florida State Seminoles next Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium.
Until then we will ride this nice little wave of luck that has surged Miami by UNC last week on the road and Wake this week at home right into next week's game against the Hurricane's most intense ACC rival.
As you already know, in rivalry game anything can, and likely will, happen.
