For the 7th consecutive year under the 3rd coach in that time frame, the Miami Hurricanes are Bowl Eligible after winning their 6th game, a 52-27 beatdown of the Louisville Cardinals at Hard Rock Stadium on Senior Day and Homecoming for The U!

Now bowl eligible, Miami is in with 5 other ACC teams with 6+ wins so far on the year. Those teams will vie for the ACC-affiliated bowl slots for 2019, and hope for an at-large bid if one of the ACC bids doesn’t go their way.

While Miami probably won’t be in a premium bowl game this year, making a bowl is still a positive accomplishment, and the additional practices alone make it worthwhile.

Congratulations to the Canes on getting to bowl eligibility. Now, let’s put together a couple more strong games and end the year on a 5 game winning streak.
