The Miami Hurricanes see a few old Big East foes on their football schedule every season, but the Hurricanes plan to add another in three years.
Miami confirmed Thursday that the Hurricanes will face Temple in a home-and-home series in the next decade, according to The Palm Beach Post. In 2020, Temple will visit Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, and then the Hurricanes will face the Owls in Philadelphia during the 2023 season.
Miami has dominated the series between the two schools, posting a 13-1 all-time record, which includes 13 straight. The wins usually have come in blowout fashion, as the Hurricanes won those 13 contests by an average of 34 points.
But this isn’t the same Temple team that was a bottom feeder in the Big East during the 1990s and 2000s. The Owls have won 10 games each of the last two seasons, and since 2009, have won at least eight games five times.
During that stretch, Al Golden, Steve Addazio and Matt Rhule have served as the coach at Temple. Miami fans know all about Golden, but Addazio and Rhule also used their success with the Owls as a stepping-stone to a Power 5 school. Addazio moved on to coach at Boston College after 2012, and Rhule will be in his first season with Baylor this fall.
Temple’s only victory against Miami came in 1930.
