The Miami Hurricanes announced a home-and-home series against the Cincinnati Bearcats for the 2014 and ’15 seasons.

The Hurricanes will play host to Cincinnati at Sun Life Stadium next season and play at Nippert Stadium in 2015.

Next year’s game will mark the 12th series meeting between the schools and the first since 1998 — a 38-12 Miami win at Cincinnati. Miami leads the series 10-1 and has won the past 10 games.

It was announced earlier this year that Miami and Arkansas State will play a home-and-home series that begins with a 2014 game at Sun Life Stadium and ends with a 2017 game in Jonesboro, Ark.

SENIORS SUPPORTED

Coach Al Golden said that although there will be some depth chart changes on defense for Saturday’s game against Virginia, it is not part of a plan to switch to younger players.

“It has nothing to do with their age,” Golden said, “because the one thing I want everybody to know [is] we’re going to support the seniors through this.

“Because we lost a couple of games now, I’m not going to just all of a sudden turn my back on the seniors that really stood with us through all this tumult.”

He said certain players, however, such as safety Jamal Carter, cornerback Corn Elder and ends Al-Quadin Muhammad and Ufomba Kamalu, are “earning reps because they’re producing.”
