The Miami Hurricanes finally get back to the gridiron when they host the Toledo Rockets on Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium. Miami is 1-0 on the season after winning the season opener September 2 against Bethune-Cookman.

The Miami Hurricanes have been off the last two weeks after not playing because of Hurricane Irma. Their game on September 9 at Arkansas State was canceled due to the impending doom of Irma. That was the first game in Miami history that was canceled due to weather.

The game that was scheduled for last Saturday, September 16 at Florida State has been postponed until October 7. That moved also necessitated the move of the Miami-Georgia Tech game scheduled for October 12 to the 14th. That will be played at Hard Rock.

The times for both the Florida State and Georgia Tech games are still to be announced. Florida State is expected to be in prime time. The game against the Yellow Jackets was originally an ESPN Thursday night game. There is no indication if that will still be a nationally televised game.

The only other games in modern Miami history that had to be postponed were UCLA in 1998, Temple in 1999, Florida State in 2004 and Georgia Tech in 2005.

Toledo enters the game 3-0. They bring a high-powered offense to South Florida. Quarterback Logan Woodside led the nation in touchdown passes last season. He was second in quarterback rating.

Woodside is 12th in the nation this season averaging 334.7 yards per game. His eight touchdowns tie him for 11th.

The Rockets also bring a good rushing offense to the Rock. Toledo has three good backs. The Rockets are 30th in the country at 218 yards per game on the ground.

Despite how prolific they are through the air, the Rockets are more committed to the run. Toledo runs the ball about 60 percent of the time.

The Rockets are in the same division as Western Michigan. The Broncos were the representative in New Years’ six bowl for the group of five in 2016. They lost in the Cotton Bowl to Wisconsin last season.
