In the modern era of Miami Hurricanes football when they play Notre Dame in South Florida, the Canes dominate the rivalry. While there have been some classic games in South Bend, the games in the 305 have been one-sided.

The Miami Hurricanes and Notre Dame first met on the Gridiron in 1955. Notre Dame won 14-0. Miami followed that up with a 28-21 victory five seasons lady. That was followed by a scoreless tie in 1965. All three of those games were in Miami. Notre Dame then won the next 11 meetings between the schools.

After playing every five years with the commencement of the rivalry, the teams played again in 1967. Their next meeting was in 1971. That began a 20-year span of playing every year but 1986. Notre Dame’s 11 game winning streak occurred between 1967-80. Five of those games were played at the Orange Bowl.

The modern era of Miami Hurricanes Football began with the hiring of Howard Schnellenberger for the 1979 season. That season’s game was scheduled to be played in Miami, but instead the Hurricanes and Fighting Irish met in Toyko in the Mirage Bowl. The game ended in a 40-15 Notre Dame Victory.
