Hurricane fans are invited to take part in the walk by forming a “human tunnel” from Gate H (Southwest Corner of Stadium) to Gate A. Join your fellow Hurricanes, the Band of the Hour, Sebastian and the cheer squads as the 2011 Miami Hurricanes football team walks from its arrival point into Sun Life Stadium. To take part in this event and welcome the Canes in grand fashion, make sure you are at Gate H two hours prior to kickoff when the team arrives. For the Bethune-Cookman game, make sure you are on site for the Hurricane Walk by 1:20 p.m. (Please note: The Hurricane Walk will take place this Saturday, weather permitting.)

Women’s Soccer Recognized
The UM women’s soccer team, which is off to a strong 7-3-1 start under first-year head coach Tom Anagnost, will be recognized on the field during the fourth timeout of the second quarter on Saturday.

The next day, the team will host to national power North Carolina at Cobb Stadium at 1 p.m. Fans who bring their football ticket from Saturday’s game can gain admission for just $1 to both the soccer match, and UM’s home volleyball match against Duke, which starts at 1:30 p.m. in the Knight Sports Complex.

Sunday’s soccer game has been tabbed a “Kick for the Cure” contest, as the team will show its support for breast cancer awareness by wearing pink warm up shirts prior to the match. The shirts will then be signed and sold to fans, while there will also be a silent auction held with memorabilia and team gear available throughout the afternoon. All proceeds from Sunday’s match will go the UM Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

He was also the first Hurricane ever to be named a National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Scholar-Athlete.

In addition to his participation in the coin toss, Smith will crank the Hurricane Warning Siren prior to the team running out of the smoke. He was also lead the “U Take a Bow” at the first timeout of the third quarter.

Season Ticket Holder of the Game
