UM Announces Changes to 2009 Schedule

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami will now play three of its four 2009 nonconference football games in the month of October.

The Hurricanes will host defending Big 12 champion and Bowl Championship Series National Game participant Oklahoma on Oct. 3 at Dolphin Stadium. It will be the first time since 1986 that Miami has hosted the Sooners. Oklahoma and Miami last met during the 2007 season in Norman, Okla. The two teams met in the 1988 Orange Bowl in Miami, which resulted in a 20-14 UM win for the program's second national title. The Sooners lead the all-time series, 4-3.

Miami will host Florida A&M on Oct. 10. The Hurricanes lead the all-time series, 6-1. UM won the last meeting between the teams in 2006, 51-10.

Miami will travel to UCF on Oct. 17 to face the Golden Knights. The Hurricanes won the first ever meeting between the two schools last season, 20-14, at Dolphin Stadium.

Three of the four game dates are changes. UM was originally scheduled to face Florida A&M on Sept.5, Oklahoma on Sept. 12 and UCF on Oct. 3.

UM's season finale at USF will still be played on Nov. 28. That will be the second meeting all-time in the series. Miami won 27-7 in 2005 at the Orange Bowl.
