Miami Football Announces 2022 Schedule
Miami announced its 2022 soccer schedule on Monday. UM will play seven home games and five away games, with their first game at Hard Rock Stadium on Sept. 3 against Bethune-Cookman.
The Wildcats, who the Hurricanes last beat in 2019 in a 63-0 loss, are coming off a disappointing 2-10 season under Terry Sims, who has served as Bethune Cookman’s head coach since 2015.
The Canes will continue their homestand in Week 2 against Southern Mississippi, which has stumbled throughout the 2021 season, compiling a 3-9 record.
From there, UM will travel to College Station, Texas to take on Texas A&M, which finished last season ranked 25th in the final college football playoff standings. The Aggies also finished with the No. 1-ranked recruiting class, according to 247Sports.
Miami will end the non-conference game at home on Sept. 24 against Middle Tennessee State. With a 6-6 regular season record in 2021, the Blue Raiders were eligible to participate in a bowling game for the first time since 2018.
After a Week 5 bye, the Canes will kick off the ACC at home on Oct. 8 against North Carolina, which has beaten Miami in three straight seasons. A Week 7 trip to Blacksburg, Va. will follow as Virginia Tech looks to rebound from the 38-26 loss to the Hurricanes in 2021.
UM will return to Hard Rock Stadium on Oct. 22 to play Duke, which will be led by first-year head coach Mike Elko, who previously served as Texas A&M’s defensive coordinator.
Miami and Virginia will engage in what should be a fantastic battle between what many consider two of the best quarterbacks in the country, Tyler Van Dyke of the Hurricanes and Brennan Armstrong of the Cavaliers. This Week 9 game will take place on October 29 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
After a showdown against Virginia, the Canes will return home and face rival Florida State, who beat Miami last season, 31-28. A two-game road trip against Georgia Tech and Clemson ensues, the latter of which Miami hasn’t beaten since 2010.
The Hurricanes’ regular season finale is at Hard Rock Stadium on Nov. 26 against Pittsburgh. Miami beat the Panthers last season, 38-34.
