Miami Hurricanes kicker Matt Goudis was hurting against FAMU

Matt Goudis came into the FAMU game having connected on nine consecutive field goals – until he missed 2 of 4 attempts against the Rattlers, a 45-yarder short of the goal posts and a 32-yarder.

He connected on 20- and 23-yard attempts.

Goudis has been recovering from an offseason back injury, and it turns out the misses were connected to a physical ailment, Hurricanes coach Al Golden said. He didn’t say whether that ailment was the original issue with Goudis’ back, but he does believe the problem was corrected earlier this week with the help of a doctor.

Shoulder makes Coley questionable

Wide receiver Stacy Coley (shoulder) attended practice Wednesday but did not participate, Golden said.
