Favorable 2018 schedule released for the Canes

08 October 2016: University of Miami mascot leads the team unto the field before the game against Florida State University in FSU's 20-19 victory at Hard Rock Stadium, Miami, Florida.

The Miami Hurricanes got their first look at the 2018 schedule and on paper, it bodes fairly well for the Canes to have another strong season.

Their seemingly biggest test of the season could come week one when they play LSU at Arlington stadium in the college football kickoff game Sunday, Sept. 2nd. It’s a huge way for the Canes to kick off the year to be a part of the nationally televised game to kick off the first full weekend of the season. especially after this past season and all the hype that surrounded the team with the turnover chain and win streak. The country will be waiting to see if the Canes can do it again in 2018.

After that one, the next biggest game will be on October 6th when they host FSU in one of their 6 home games. We’ll see where the Noles are ranked come time for that game after a subpar 2017 campaign. But one thing rings true every year, no matter the rankings, that game is always a big one.

Then the Canes will travel to Blacksburg where the Hokies of Virginia Tech will be looking to get some revenge for the way Miami beat them this past season. The rest of the schedule looks like this, the home games will be in bold.

In a somewhat depleted ACC, the Canes definitely have a chance to repeat as Coastal division champs to have another shot at the ACC title. And quite possibly, a national title.
