CORAL GABLES, Fla. ( – University of Miami athletic director Paul Dee today announced start times for the Hurricanes’ 2000 football schedule.

The Hurricanes open their 2000 campaign at home in the Orange Bowl on Thursday, August 31, vs. McNeese State at 7:30 p.m. Nine days later, on September 9, the Hurricanes travel almost 3,000 miles to take on Pac-10 Conference power Washington in a nationally televised (ABC) game slated to kick off at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time.

The game at Washington is the first of three consecutive road contests for the Hurricanes. On Sept. 23, Miami plays West Virginia starting at 3:30 followed on Sept. 30 with a 7:30 p.m. matchup at Rutgers.

UM closes out the regular season with four of its final five games at home. The stretch begins with a non-conference matchup with unheralded Louisiana Tech at Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. followed by a visit from 1999 BIG EAST Conference champion Virginia Tech in a nationally televised (CBS) contest kicking off at Noon on Nov. 4, UM’s annual Homecoming game.

The Pittsburgh Panthers come to the Orange Bowl to take on the Canes on Nov. 11 before the Hurricanes conclude the regular season road schedule with a conference showdown at BIG EAST rival Syracuse on November 18. The Boston College Eagles invade the Orange Bowl on Nov. 25 for the regular season’s finale.
