CORAL GABLES, Fla. - When it comes to a team's schedule in college football, sometimes the "when" is as important as the "who (or whom?)." When you play tough teams matters, especially when those games could ultimately decide a conference, or even national championship. When you analyze a schedule, coaches will often look for two things: 1. Do our toughest opponents have bye weeks before they play us? 2. If we have to play on a short week, does our opponent have a competitive advantage.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Bowl games are always tough to predict with the long lay off, and you never know the motivations of players who may be looking ahead to NFL opportunities. Will’s take: The one thing I can say about this game is that it will likely be a defensive battle. We all know the story of the turnover chain and how the Canes defense has been the biggest factor in Miami’s success this season. Yet, on the other side the same can be said for Wisconsin about the defense leading the way.
PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - If you're just interested in a prediction for Saturday night's Miami-Virginia Tech game, I'm going with 23-20 Hurricanes. There, I saved you a lot of scrolling. If you want some analysis, there are some reasons why I think this game sets up well for Miami. For those who don't know, I'm a Virginia Tech graduate and follow both the 'Canes and Hokies very closely. These are two very similar, evenly matched teams.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
