Aug. 30, 2000

CORAL GABLES, Fla. ( – A final 45-minute walk-through at the Greentree Practice Field served as the final step in preparations and the University of Miami Hurricanes are ready to begin the 2000 football season. The Hurricanes take on the Cowboys of McNeese State Thursday night at the Orange Bowl with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

“It’s seems like it’s been forever getting to this point, but we’re really ready to get this season started,” said Hurricanes’ head coach Butch Davis. “You can feel the excitement of the players, fans and coaches. That anticipation is part of what makes each season so special.”

Tickets remain for the opener and the UM Ticket Office announced that all remaining tickets (including reserved and general admission seats) are available for $7 and may be pre-purchased at the Hurricane Ticket Office (5821 San Amaro Drive in Coral Gables) or Thursday at the Orange Bowl prior to kickoff.
