Miami Hurricanes’ 2024 football schedule released

The Miami Hurricanes’ 2024 football schedule features four games against teams from Florida, a November matchup with former coach Manny Diaz and Cal’s first home conference game in the ACC. Those are among the highlights of the schedule the ACC announced Wednesday.

Miami opens at Florida in a game announced five years ago. The Gators and ’Canes also opened the 2019 season against each other, but this will be the Hurricanes’ first time in Gainesville since a 23-point loss during the Gators’ 2008 national championship run.

Miami’s non-conference schedule for Mario Cristobal’s third season ends with a Sept. 21 game against USF at Raymond James Stadium. It will be the Hurricanes’ first trip to Tampa since a 28-point win over the Bulls in 2013.

The ’Canes open conference play with Friday night game against Virginia Tech and travel to Cal the next week. That will be the Golden Bears’ ACC home opener; they’re joining the league from the disintegrating Pac-12 this season.

The marquee matchup remains Florida State. Miami hosts that on Oct. 26 after a tricky trip to Louisville.

The next week, the Hurricanes host Duke in a homecoming for Diaz. He went 21-15 in three seasons at The U and was hired to take over the Blue Devils this offseason.
