Miami opens league play on Oct. 1 as it travels to Georgia Tech. The following week on Oct. 8, the Hurricanes welcome in-state rival Florida State to Sun Life Stadium.

The Hurricanes’ remaining conference slate includes matchups with North Carolina (Oct. 15), at Virginia Tech on a Thursday (Oct. 20), Pittsburgh (Nov. 5), at Virginia (Nov. 12), at NC State (Nov. 19) and Duke (Nov. 26).
