Miami quarterback Kyle Wright finds himself back on top of the Hurricanes' depth chart.
Coach Randy Shannon says Wright will start Saturday's game against 0-and-2 Florida International in place of Kirby Freeman. The MVP of Miami's win in last season's MPC Computers Bowl struggled in the first two games this season. Wright was more effective in the Hurricanes' 51-13 loss last weekend at Oklahoma, going 7-for-14 for 65 yards and a touchdown, compared to Freeman's 3-for-9, 17-yard effort.
It'll be Wright's first start since last November fourth when he broke his wrist and missed the Canes' final four games. He then lost the starting job to Freeman in training camp.
Miami ranks 118th out of 119 major college schools in passing offense through the season's first two weeks. Only Navy -- a run-dominated team with just 19 throws this year -- has put up fewer passing yards than the Hurricanes, who are averaging 84 per game.
