Florida-Miami Season Opener Moved to Aug

Florida-Miami Season Opener Moved to Aug

Talks among both schools, ESPN, Florida Citrus Sports and the College Football 150th Anniversary Organization proceeded over the last several months, culminating with the NCAA decision Thursday.

Reigniting the Florida-Miami rivalry will be a great start to the college football season.

"24 is a unique and rare opportunity that showcases college football, both storied programs, and the state of Florida", Florida Athletic Director Scott Stricklin said in a statement. The game will kickoff at 7 p.m. and be broadcast on ESPN.

On Thursday, it was reported that the Florida vs. Miami season opener will be moved up one week from august 31 to august 24. It will mark the earliest game date in the history of either program, and August 24 will be the earliest start date for any major college football season since 2003.

Both schools are also urging the airlines and hotels to accommodate the fans as best as possible.

In their release, the Gators said "both schools have had conversations with primary air carriers" and the "Orlando tourism and lodging community" to provide relief and assistance to fans who need to rebook their travel. "After consulting with [new MIami head coach Manny Diaz], we agreed that this would be a tremendous opportunity to showcase Hurricanes football - both our present team and our long, storied tradition - on a national stage".

They added, "We would like to thank you all again for all the support and heartwarming messages". Before her passing, she was transferred to a hospital in Munich by helicopter.

The game will be played in Orlando, Florida, as originally scheduled.

Miami and Florida, who once played on an annual basis, last met in 2013. The Hurricanes lead the all-time series between the two with a 29-26 record.

So Diaz's debut as coach of the Hurricanes will come a week earlier than first thought.

Due to the popularity of the game, a public sale is not expected. As Florida and Miami finish selling their respective ticket allotments to season-ticket holders, the only way to guarantee access is through membership with Florida Citrus Sports.

The Camping World Kickoff is becoming one of the biggest draws of the season.
