CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Miami coach Mark Richt's departure from Georgia two years ago was called a lot of things: a stepping down, a parting of the ways, a mutual decision, and a firing.
The semantics are irrelevant now.
No. 8 Miami has the nation's second-longest current winning streak at 10 games. No. 3 Georgia has won eight straight, the third-longest streak among FBS schools entering this weekend. The Hurricanes and Bulldogs are among the last eight unbeaten teams in the nation, and both have a real shot of reaching their conference title games in December.
