Miami, BYU agree to home-and-home in 2026, 2028
Miami and Brigham Young will meet for a home-and-home football series in 2026 and 2028, the schools announced Thursday.
Miami will host BYU on Sept. 19, 2026 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. Two seasons later, BYU will host the Hurricanes on Sept. 2, 2028 in Provo, Utah.
Unless they meet in a postseason game before 2026, it will mark the first time Miami and BYU square off since 1990, when the Cougars upset the top-ranked and defending national champion Hurricanes in Provo.
The two programs have enjoyed strong showings of late. In the final Associated Press poll of the 2020 season, BYU (11-1) finished No. 11 in the country and Miami (8-3) was No. 22. The ‘Canes are ranked No. 16 in the preseason coaches’ poll for 2021.
“We are always looking for opportunities to schedule storied football programs like Miami,” BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe said in a statement. “Traveling to ACC country and competing in an NFL stadium will be a great experience for our coaches, players and fans.”
“We are excited to add BYU to our future football schedule,” Miami AD Blake James said in a statement. “We remain committed to scheduling top programs for our nonconference games and showcasing The U across the country.”
