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).
