The Miami (FL) Hurricanes and the Toledo Rockets have moved their previously scheduled 2015-16 home-and-home football series to the 2017 and 2018 seasons, according to a release by Toledo today.
Toledo was previously scheduled to host Miami at the Glass Bowl on Sept. 5, 2015 and travel to face the Hurricanes at Sun Life Stadium on Sept. 3, 2016.
The new dates for this rare ACC-MAC home-and-home series are now Sept. 23, 2017 at Miami and Aug. 30, 2018 at Toledo. The 2018 game will be the season-opener for both schools.
Miami and Toledo initially announced this series back in July of 2010. 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.
Toledo also announced today that they have added New Hampshire to their 2014 football schedule. The Rockets will host the Wildcats on Aug. 30. The rest of their 2014 non-conference schedule includes Missouri (Sept. 6), at Cincinnati (Sept. 13, at Paul Brown Stadium), and at Iowa State (Sept. 20).
