Less than three weeks after the 2017 college football season came to an end, the Miami Hurricanes now know their schedule for the upcoming season.
The ACC released the complete regular season schedules for each member school Wednesday, including the Canes and in-state rival Florida State. The two teams will meet for the 63rd time on October 6th inside Hard Rock Stadium – almost one year after Miami broke a seven game losing streak to the Seminoles.
Miami will open the season with four straight non-conference games – including the season opener against LSU on September 2nd in Arlington, Texas followed by their home opener on the 8th against Savannah State and an all Miami-Dade showdown with FIU on September 22nd.
Miami will open conference play on Thursday, September 27th against North Carolina. The Hurricanes will travel to take on longtime conference rival Virginia Tech on November 17th and will host the Pittsburgh Panthers, the only team to beat the Hurricanes in the regular season last year, on November 24th
The complete schedule for the 2018 Miami Hurricanes is listed below:
September 2nd: LSU (Arlington, TX)
September 8th: Savannah State
September 15th: at Toledo
September 22nd: FIU

The Hurricanes will look to continue the momentum from the 2017 season, where Miami went 10-3 for their first double digit win season since 2003 that included their first ever Coastal Division title and trip to the ACC Championship Game. Miami finished the season with a 34-24 loss in the Orange Bowl against Wisconsin.
Florida State will open their season on Monday, September 3rd at home against Virginia Tech and will have other high profile games against Clemson at home on October 27th, Notre Dame on the road on November 10th and their regular season finale against rival Florida on November 24th.
