The Miami Hurricanes and the Cincinnati Bearcats have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2014 and 2015, UC director of athletics Whit Babcock officially announced today. Miami has also announced the series.
Miami will host the first game of the series at Sun Life Stadium on Oct. 11, 2014. In the second and final game of the series, the Hurricanes will travel to face the Bearcats at newly renovated Nippert Stadium on Oct. 3, 2015.
In their last meeting in 1998, Miami defeated Cincinnati 38-12. The Hurricanes have won ten straight games in the series and lead overall 10-1.
The addition of Cincinnati tentatively completes Miami’s 2014 non-conference schedule. The Hurricanes are also scheduled to host Florida A&M (Sept. 6), Arkansas State (date TBA), and travel to Nebraska on Sept. 20.
Miami now has three games set for the 2015 season. The Hurricanes are also slated to host Nebraska (Sept. 19) and visit Florida Atlantic (date TBA).
Cincinnati already had four non-conference game scheduled for the 2014 season, but have canceled a planned game against Stony Brook on Aug. 30. UC will also host Toledo (Sept. 13) and Miami, OH (Sept. 20) and travel to Ohio State (Sept. 27).
The addition of the Hurricanes also tentatively completes Cincinnati’s 2015 non-conference schedule. The Bearcats are also scheduled to host Alabama A&M (Sept. 5) and travel to Miami, OH (Sept. 19) and BYU (Oct. 24).
Decent and interesting matchup between these two for the next two season!
This would be a great game for a Thursday or Friday night. I would enjoy watching this matchup but it would get lost in a big Saturday line up.
I agree, it would be a great weeknight game.
