Miami, Cincinnati agree to series
By Andrea Adelson
Miami and Cincinnati will play a home-and-home series in 2014 and 2015, the schools announced Tuesday.
The Canes will host Cincinnati on Oct. 11, 2014, then make the trip to newly renovated Nippert Stadium on Oct. 3, 2015.
The Hurricanes hold a 10-1 advantage in the series, with the last meeting in 1998. Cincinnati coach Tommy Tuberville was on the Miami staff from 1986-93 and won three national championships. Offensive coordinator Eddie Gran also has extensive Florida ties, serving as a graduate assistant at Miami from 1990-91, coaching at Florida State (2010-12) and spending the better part of two decades recruiting South Florida.
Miami has now completed its nonconference schedule for next season. The Canes will also play Florida A&M, Arkansas State and at Nebraska.
