The Miami Hurricanes open the 2014 regular season on the road against incoming Atlantic Coast Conference member Louisville, and the schedule features a few more challenging games.
Highlighted by a meeting with rival and defending national champions Florida State, the Hurricanes' quest for their first-ever Coastal Division title is difficult once again.
Considering Miami is logically shooting for a 10-win campaign, Louisville, FSU and a Thursday night matchup with Virginia Tech are key regular-season games.
While ACC games are the most important in the overall picture, a nonconference road clash in late September is a benchmark outing for the Hurricanes.
