Miami Hurricanes 2015 Football Schedule


More from Miami Hurricanes News

The full Miami Hurricanes 2015 football schedule is set to be announced Thursday morning when the ACC releases the conference portion of their schedule. On first glance, the Hurricanes schedule appears to be a tough one with road games at Duke, Pittsburgh, Florida State, North Carolina. The opening portion for the Hurricanes shouldn’t be a problem, which is completely different from last year when the team jumped right into ACC play against Louisville.

The team should be much improved, and with games against tougher competition, they’ll have to be sharp most of the year.

September 5th, Bethune Cookman Wildcats

Starting off the season at home against Bethune-Cookman is a lot better than starting the year on the road against Louisville. Miami will have a chance to get their team in a rhythm before they get into tougher games, against tougher opponents.

September 12th, at Florida Atlantic Owls

FAU went 3-9 last year, but are returning most of their key players in 2015. Miami will play as the visitors, but I’m sure that they’ll be plenty of orange and green in the stands for this one. This is essentially a road tune-up game for the Hurricanes.

September 19th, Nebraska Cornhuskers

This is a rematch of last years game where Nebraska beat Miami, 41-31, in front of a sold out crowd. This year, Miami is the host and should be 2-0 by the time of this game, with plenty of time to prepare. Nebraska will be without their best players on either side of the ball as Ameer Abdullah and Randy Gregory will now be playing on Sunday’s. Nebraska will also be easing in a new coaching staff in 2015. It’ll be the first test for Miami, and we’ll know more about the 2015 team after this one.

September 26th, Bye Week


October 1st or 3rd, at Cincinnati Bearcats

Led again by Gunner Kiel, the Bearcats will try to avenge a 55-34 loss to the Miami Hurricanes during last year’s meeting. The Bearcats will be the hosts this time around, so we’ll see if that has any influence on the game. Coming off a bye week can’t hurt the Hurricanes’ chances.

October 10th, at Florida State Seminoles

UM-FSU is back in October and as a Canes fan, this is always the game you’re going to circle. Miami doesn’t have to deal with Jameis Winston anymore, and that’s a good thing. They do, however, have to deal with Dalvin Cook. That’s not such a good thing. Al Golden will be looking to beat Florida State for the first time in his tenure at Miami. If the Cincinnati game is moved to Thursday the 1st instead of Saturday the 3rd, the Hurricanes will have 9 days to prepare for Florida State. They had 2 weeks to prepare for this past year’s game, and they lost 30-26 in a heartbreaker.

October 17th, Virginia Tech

This is going to be another tough game for the Hurricanes. Do you guys remember what happened last year in Lane Stadium? Yeah, Miami embarrassed VT in front of a sell out crowd, and they’re going to be looking to do the same thing to us.

October 24th, Clemson

This is probably the toughest game of the season for the Hurricanes, aside of the Florida State game, which is usually a tough one. Clemson is returning 11 starters, and a lot of elite talent on the roster. Deshaun Watson came onto the scene as a freshman last season, kinda like Brad Kaaya did for Miami. Watson, however, is coming off knee surgery so his production is worth monitoring. Miami will be in the midst of a tough stretch after games against FSU and VT. Miami will definitely have their work cut out for them, even in front of their home crowd.

October 31st, at Duke

We all remember what happened the last time Miami played at Duke. The Blue Devils literally ran all over the Hurricanes, and gave them the knockout blow in the ACC Coastal Division race. Last year, the game was sloppier, but Kaaya led the Canes to a victory with some exceptional throws late in the game. Duke returns their two leading rushers in Shaq Powell and Shaun Wilson, but they’ll be starting a new quarterback after losing Anthony Boone to graduation. David Helton and his million tackles are also no longer on the team. Expect a crazy atmosphere on Halloween day in Durham.

November 7th, Virginia

The Hurricanes get Virginia at home this year, which is a good thing because apparently we can’t win over there. This has to be a game Miami wins next year, or it’ll piss off a lot of people. At least Miami doesn’t have to deal with that monster defensive line, though.

November 14th, at North Carolina

The last time the Canes traveled to Chapel Hill, they needed an incredible performance by then-running back Dallas Crawford. Last year, the Hurricanes laid the beating on the Tar Heels, 47-20. UNC is returning most of their starters on offense, and Marquise Williams will have another year under his belt. This is another tough one for Miami.

November 21st, Georgia Tech

Last year’s game made Hurricanes fans consume a lot of alcohol. Everyone knew that Georgia Tech was going to run the ball, and Mark D’Onofrio and the Canes seem to do nothing about it. The Yellow Jackets were one of the big surprises last year, and came two points shy of upsetting Florida State and winning the ACC Championship game. Justin Thomas is back in a Georgia Tech uniform, and that’s always a problem. Georgia Tech lost virtually all of their running backs and DeAndre Smelter, and that’s a great thing. This is still going to be a very good team, though.

November 27th, at Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh spoiled senior night for the Hurricanes, and sent out Duke Johnson with a loss on his last home game as a Cane. James Conner, the reigning ACC Player of the Year, is back and he’s looking to cause some more damage on the ground. The last time Miami traveled to Pittsburgh, Stacy Coley was still making plays. Please come back to us, Pittsburgh game Stacy Coley.

December 5th, ACC Championship Game

Please, God.
