The parade of future non-conference scheduling news continued for USF football on Tuesday as they officially announced a three-game series with in-state power Miami. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald broke the news.
Per source, UM has agreed to non-conference football series with USF. Teams will play in Miami in 2025 and 2028 and in Tampa in 2027. Announcement expected today.— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) May 14, 2019
As you can see, the series will begin on Sept. 13, 2025 when the Bulls head down to Hard Rock Stadium to meet the Hurricanes. The two Sunshine State foes will meet at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Sept. 4, 2027 before closing the series back in Miami Gardens on Sept. 9, 2028. Nathan Bond has already FOIA’d the contract and we’ll have the terms of the deal as soon as they’re made available to us.
The Bulls and Hurricanes first met on the field in 2005 and played each other every year from 2009 until 2013. USF’s lone victory over the ‘U’ came in the 2010, a 23-20 overtime win that got former ‘Canes head coach Randy Shannon fired immediately after the game.
USF continues to stockpile non-conference games against quality opponents over the next decade with three-game series versus Louisville and Florida, a home-and-home with Boise State and a one-off with Texas all on the horizon in addition to this UM series.
