CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- A year ago, Bethune-Cookman visited Miami and lost by 31 points. The next week, the Wildcats lost to North Carolina A&T.

Since then, they've been perfect.

There are more than 600 college football teams across the FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III levels -- and only five have longer current winning streaks than the Wildcats (2-0), who will try for a ninth straight victory Saturday at Miami (1-1). Bethune-Cookman lost 45-14 at Miami last year, but outgained the Hurricanes 422-335 and trailed by just a touchdown late in the third quarter.

Getting ready for Miami, that won't be an issue for Bethune-Cookman, which is located about 260 miles north of Miami in Daytona Beach, Fla., has a roster loaded with players with ties to South Florida.
