UM football books three nonconference games with state school

The Miami Hurricanes have booked a three-game football series with USF, with two games in Miami and one in Tampa, according to a source.

The teams will play at Hard Rock Stadium in 2025 and 2028 and in Tampa in 2027. All three UM-USF games will be in September.

The Canes have won five of the six games in the all-time series, including three in a row. All the games were played between 2005 and 2013.

The Hurricanes have now booked games against 10 different nonconference teams in the next decade.

Those other nonconference matchups, per and previous UM announcements:

2020: home games against Temple and UAB and at Michigan State

2021: Alabama in Atlanta and home games against Appalachian State and Michigan State

2022: at Texas A&M

UM also has games booked against Notre Dame in 2031, 2032 and 2034, the last two of those games in Miami.

In the 2019 season, UM’s nonconference games are UF in Orlando on Aug. 24, Bethune-Cookman Sept. 14, Central Michigan Sept. 21 and FIU at Marlins Park on Nov. 23.

The UF game in Orlando and the FIU game will kick off at 7 p.m. Start times haven’t been announced for UM’s other two 2019 nonconference games.
