Miami Hurricanes draw another noon kickoff against Wake Forest



Hurricanes fans, start planning your tailgate breakfast for the next home game.

The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Monday that the Hurricanes’ Oct. 26 game against Wake Forest is set for noon at Sun Life Stadium and will be televised by ESPNU.

It is the third noon game for Miami this season. The others: against Florida on Sept. 7 and at South Florida on Sept. 28.

The Hurricanes’ 21-16 victory against Florida had 4,596,000 viewers, according to ESPN — a significant number.

UM said that fewer than 7,700 tickets remain for the Wake Forest game, which will serve as Miami’s Employee Day.

• Miami (5-0, 2-0), preparing for its game Thursday night (7:45 p.m. kickoff) at North Carolina (1-4, 0-2) in Chapel Hill, shut down practice access this week and ended interviews after Sunday’s weekly news conference.

• Receiver Rashawn Scott — out since he injured his collarbone in the opener against FAU — had still not had contact as of Sunday but was “close” to returning, according to coach Al Golden. Scott could really give UM a boost if he returns by the Nov. 2 showdown at No. 5 Florida State (5-0, 3-0).

    “No, it’s not easy,” Golden said of Crow’s situation. “The idea behind the move back in July was give him an opportunity to play, based on our depth at quarterback. We were hoping he could help us at H-back, at fullback, at long-snapper or in some way on special teams. He talked to us [Tuesday] and we moved him back.”

FILE- In this Sept. 6, 2014, file photo, Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya watches from the sideline during the second half of an NCAA football game against Florida A&M in Miami Gardens, Fla. Kaaya was walking through the Miami campus earlier this week, totally unbothered and unnoticed as he strolled around Lake Osceola. Call it a rare moment of solitude for the Hurricanes' quarterback, who has been thrust into the fire as a freshman starter and is now getting ready for No. 24 Nebraska on Saturday night.
