The University of Miami released its 2018 football schedule Wednesday, highlighted by a nationally televised, season-opening matchup with LSU, as well as six home games at Hard Rock Stadium.
The Hurricanes kick off the 2018 season on Sunday, Sept. 2, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, against the Tigers in the 2018 AdvoCare Classic – UM's first meeting with LSU since the 2005 Peach Bowl and the first regular season meeting between the two schools since 1988. The game will be televised on ABC at 7:30 p.m. ET. Miami's last visit to the Dallas area was its 1991 Cotton Bowl win over Texas.
Miami's home schedule includes non-conference games against FIU and Savannah State, as well as games against ACC rivals Duke, Florida State, North Carolina and Pittsburgh. The Hurricanes posted a 7-0 regular season mark at Hard Rock Stadium in 2017.
Miami enters the 2018 campaign following a strong 2017 season in which the Hurricanes posted a 10-3 record – UM's first 10-win season since 2003 – and won the ACC Coastal Division title for the first time in school history. Head coach Mark Richt was named ACC Coach of the Year and Walter Camp National Coach of the Year.
