The Miami (FL) Hurricanes and the Toledo Rockets have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2015 and 2016, the University of Toledo has reported.
Miami will travel to face Toledo at the Glass Bowl in Toledo, Ohio on September 5, 2015. On September 3, 2016, the Hurricanes will host the Rockets at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
In their first and only contest back in 1987, the Hurricanes beat the Rockets 24-14 at home. Miami went on to win the national championship after defeating Oklahoma in the 1988 Orange Bowl.
The game is a coup of sorts for Toledo. It means they will open their 2015 season at home against an ACC power. On the other hand, Miami will open the season on the road before going home to host Nebraska.
Toledo is a member of the Mid-American Conference (MAC). In 2009, the Rockets finished 5-7. They haven’t participated in a postseason game since the 2005 GMAC Bowl, a 45-13 win over UTEP.
Last week, the Hurricanes announced a 3-game series with Notre Dame. The Hurricanes and Irish will meet at Soldier Field in Chicago in 2012, at South Bend in 2016 and at Miami in 2017.
