MIAMI (AP) — When the final whistle blows Thursday night, it might not take long for No. 13 Miami to turn its attention toward facing No. 2 Ohio State the following weekend.

Until then, the Hurricanes are trying desperately to have a no-Buckeye-thought policy in effect.

Miami opens its season at home Thursday against Florida A&M, a team it easily handled 48-16 a year ago and have outscored by a combined margin of 355-49 in seven meetings since 1980.

Hurricanes quarterback Jacory Harris says that everywhere he goes, the talk has been "OSU this, OSU that," but insists his team isn't looking past the in-state opening opponent.

Says Miami running back Damien Berry, "We're going to play them like any other team."
