Miami Hurricanes Football 2014 Season
Despite qualifying for the ACC Championship
game last year with a win over Duke in the final regular season game, the Miami Hurricanes football program did not play for the title against rival Florida State. The young squad hoped that by taking themselves out of bowls for two straight years, they’d eliminate any further penalties from the NCAA. There has been no official word on whether the Hurricanes will be allowed to play in the postseason this year.
The Canes are one of the favorites to win the Coastal Division this year but the squad will need their defense to step up. Many will look to Veteran Anthony Chickillo, Miami’s sack leader last year, to lead the team. One of the toughest games on the Canes schedule will be played in Week 2 against the Florida Gators. At an average ticket price of $228 (up $24 in the last two weeks), the Florida Gators vs. Miami Hurricanes game is the most expensive at Sun Life Stadium in 2013.
Conference play begins in October and the most challenging games will come on the road. Al Golden and his team will head to Tallahassee in early November to play the Seminoles (avg. $158) in the most expensive road game of the season. ACC foes that will make the trip to Coral Gables include: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Wake Forest Deacons, Virginia Tech Hokies, and Virginia Cavaliers.
