College football 2012 schedule: Miami seeks bowl eligibility with game against USF

The Hurricanes are one win away from clinching a bowl berth.


It hasn't been a stellar season so far for Miami, but it can become a memorable one in a hurry. At 5-5 with two regular season games left, the Hurricanes still have a chance to play for a BCS berth.

First things first, a win over in-state rival South Florida on Saturday would make Miami bowl eligible. The Bulls enter the game 3-6 but are coming off a win against UConn.

If Miami wins next week against Duke, it will play in the ACC title game, with the winner earning a berth in a BCS bowl.

It's likely opponent in that game would be Florida State. The Seminoles will clinch a spot in that game if they can beat Maryland on Saturday. A loss would open the door for Clemson to win the ACC Atlantic division.

Over in Conference-USA, Central Florida heads to Tulsa, in a game between the only two teams without a loss in conference games.

The full schedule of games is below:

Saturday, November 17, 2012:

  • Florida State at Maryland, 12:00 p.m., ESPNU
  • Central Florida at Tulsa, 12:00 p.m.
  • Jacksonville State at Florida, 1:00 p.m., ESPN3
  • South Florida at Miami, 3:00 p.m., RSN
