This Season’s Opening Game Is Miami’s Biggest Since 2001

The Miami Hurricanes have an opportunity to start the 2024 season with a road win against an in-state rival SEC team. Coach Cristobal couldn’t ask for a better early-season test for what should be his best and most talented team since he arrived in Coral Gables three years ago.

I think this is Miami’s biggest season-opening game since they went to Happy Valley to take on Penn State in 2001. The Canes were coming off an 11-win season in 2000 where the BCS robbed them of playing for a national championship in front of their home crowd against the undefeated Oklahoma Sooners.
