On Thursday afternoon, the University of Miami announced a future home and home football series against the Auburn Tigers.
Looking forward to this one!— Canes Football (@CanesFootball) June 17, 2021
The series will take place in 2029 and 2030 with the first game being played at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, and the return game on campus in Auburn at Jordan Hare Stadium the following year.
This is yet another marquee non-conference matchup for the future of the Miami Hurricanes schedule. The Canes kick off the 2021 season in Atlanta against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Following that, Miami has non-conference games against Michigan State (2021), Texas A&M (2022-23), Florida (2024), Notre Dame (2024-25), South Carolina (2026-27), and more Notre Dame (2028, 2031, 2032, 2034, and 2037).
Auburn and Miami have met 11 times in the history of the programs. While Auburn holds a 7-4 lead in these games, Miami won the 2 most recent matchups in 1978 and 1984, the latter of which saw Miami beat then-#1 Auburn led by Heisman Trophy winning RB Bo Jackson. Auburn was one of many teams to pummel Miami in the infancy of the program, but Miami has grown into the iconic 5-time National Championship program that it is, so those easy wins from the 60s and early 70s are a thing of the past.
So mark your calendars for September 1, 2029 and August 21, 2030.
Miami Hurricanes vs Auburn Tigers.
You love to see it.
