Miami and Temple will face off in a future home-and-home series, American Athletic Conference commissioner Mike Aresco stated during his league’s media day Tuesday.
Marc Narducci of Philly.com reports that, while the deal is not totally completed, the likelihood is that Temple would visit Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium in 2020. The Hurricanes would then make the return trip to Philadelphia in 2023.
Miami’s 2020 dates include visits to Michigan State (Sept. 26) and FIU (TBA). Temple has home tilts with Idaho (Sept. 12) and Rutgers (Sept. 19) planned for that season. Temple will host Rutgers in 2023 (Sept. 9), followed by a home date with Duke (Sept. 16). Miami’s lone confirmed 2023 outing is a home matchup with Texas A&M (Sept. 23).
The Hurricanes have won all 13 contests with the Owls, the most recent a 34-3 victory in Philadelphia in 2005.
Miami and Temple have officially announced the home-and-home series. The two schools will play at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on Sept. 5, 2020 and at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Sept. 23, 2023.
