Canes Announce Three-Game Series with FAU

Canes Announce Three-Game Series with FAU

April 21, 2012


CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami and Florida Atlantic University (FAU) have scheduled a three-game football series that will begin during the fall of 2013.

Now the only question is whether Howard Schnellenberger will be pulling for the Canes or the Owls?

“I’m thrilled to death that FAU and UM are going to face-off on the gridiron,” said Schnellenberger. “It is part of the big plan and may develop into a wonderful addition to south Florida football.”

The Owls and Hurricanes have never met on the field, but share a lineage with Schnellenberger, who retired after the 2011 season with a 158-151-3 career record.

Miami will host FAU at Sun Life Stadium on Aug. 31, 2013 to open the series.  UM will travel to FAU Stadium in 2015 and host the Owls in 2016. Dates for the 2015 and 2016 games will be announced at a later date.
