As the Hurricanes race toward yet another season of college football, hoping to return to their once dominant ways, a few new faces are joining the conference.

From the SMU Mustangs to the California-based teams Stanford and California, the ACC will be the battleground for a No. 1 spot in the conference and an automatic ticket to the College Football Playoffs.

Beyond the 2024 season and the ACC, which teams would make intriguing and entertaining matchups for Miami?

These three teams could be incredible home-and-home series for Mario Cristobal and the Miami Hurricanes:

451. memph. 834. . . . . .

In 2023, the Memphis Tigers returned to success with a 10-3 overall record. Before to last season, the Tigers had fallen into a long-lasting rut.

However, the history of both programs could create for an interesting home-and-home series between the two.

Not to mention, the Hurricanes' rivals head coach Mike Norvell of Florida State spent three seasons with the Tigers before joining the Seminoles squad.

886. . . 834. . . ucf. .

Despite sharing a state, the UCF Knights and Miami Hurricanes have only shared a field twice before.

The Canes have walked away with the win in both matchups between the two Florida-based teams, most recently in 2009.

As UCF has surged onto the national stage and Miami has struggled to find consistency on the field, a home-and-home series between the two programs would be boundless entertainment for both sides of the aisle.

515. . uo. 834. . . . .

Mario Cristobal left the Oregon Ducks to return home to Miami and become the Hurricanes' head coach in 2022.

In 1958, the Canes and the Ducks met for the only time in program history, and Miami walked away with a resounding 2-0 victory over Oregon.

A matchup between Cristobal and his former squad would make for an unparalleled home-and-home series.
