The Hurricanes (2-0), who dropped from No. 15 to 16 in the AP rankings this week, are playing at home at 7 p.m. Saturday against Savannah State — but will have another noon start soon enough.

The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Monday that Miami’s first road game against USF (0-3) in Tampa on Sept. 28 will kick off at noon. The game will be televised by either ABC, ESPN or ESPNU.

The TV network designation will be announced Sunday.

Injury update

Wide receiver Rashawn Scott (shoulder/collarbone) was at practice wearing a red (no-contact) jersey. Golden said he expects him back “sometime before or after North Carolina” on Oct. 17. Golden also said he expects offensive lineman Danny Isidora (broken foot/surgery) back around that time.

Deon Bush (hernia surgery) has moved up to second-team safety, as opposed to third-team, on the depth chart. But Golden wasn’t saying whether Bush will play Saturday.

• UM confirmed Monday that former scholarship quarterback Preston Dewey, who would have been a redshirt freshman, is enrolled as a Miami student but is no longer on the football team. Dewey is still attending school on a scholarship, but he is not counted as one of the 105 players.
