UNC-Miami to play early due to Orange Bowl damage
MIAMI -- Hurricane Wilma damaged the Orange Bowl's lighting system, prompting the starting time for Saturday's game between North Carolina and sixth-ranked Miami to be moved up to noon, the Atlantic Coast Conference said on Tuesday.
"We wanted to play in the Orange Bowl, since it's our home,'" Miami coach Larry Coker said. "I think it's an opportunity to give something back to the community a little bit. We're a tough, resilient community and we look forward to playing in front of our fans."
