NCAA Football: Miami at Toledo Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Good Sunday morning, Canes fam! Here are your News and Notes:

Canes beat Toledo Rockets 49-24, move to 2-1 on the year

Miami took the show on the road and played at another mid-major school. And, just like when Miami went to Appalachian State in 2016, Miami outclassed the home team on the way to a big victory.

In the course of the game, several players had standout performances.

It was closer than it should have been for a time, but all in all, a 25 point win on the road against a team that won their conference last year and could very well do so again this year is a good thing.

More Recaps from the Toledo game

Some other worthy reading material from Saturday afternoon

  • Game Recap by Christy Chirinos of The South Florida Sun-Sentinel
  • Game Recap by Susan Miller Degnan of The Miami Herald
  • Canes Nuggets by Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald
  • Game Recap by Manny Navarro of The Athletic
  • Game highlight video by the venerable Mitch Purdue

I’m sure you can find the other pieces by those writers as well. But between our recap content (with more on the way) and the pieces linked here, you should have a pretty full picture of what happened on Saturday.

On to FIU

And now, after Saturday’s win, Miami returns home next week to face the other FBS team in Dade County: the FIU Panthers.

Coached by former UM head man Butch Davis, the Panthers look to beat the Canes for the first time.

The game, already announced to be a 3:30pm kickoff, has been picked up by ESPN2 for broadcast.

So, if you’re at home and not at Hard Rock Stadium next weekend, you’ll get to hear Andre Ware’s terrible commentary again. YAY FOR YOU!!!

We all know that the last time these teams met, there was a fight.

This year, we don’t need any of that. Just go out there, beat them to smithereens, and move on.


FSU loses to Syracuse 30-7, falls to 1-2

Nole Cast blames Offensive Line.

So does Willie Taggart.

Players talked about the embarrassing loss, too.

Just wanted to put that out there.

Have a great Sunday!

Go Canes
