Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Miami vs Florida State

Rival Team: FSU Seminoles

These two schools first met in 1951 when the Hurricanes beat the Seminoles 35-13. Since then the series has been close with Miami holding a slight 31-28 all-time lead. However, the Seminoles have won the last five in a row. This rivalry has been particularly heated since the late 1980s as both teams have found themselves near the top of the rankings in recent years. Field Goals have been particularly pivotal in the rivalry having decided several of the most famous contests including Wide Right I, II, III, and IV as well as Wide Left.

Miami vs Florida

Rival Team: Florida Gators

This rivalry dated back to 1938 and was played annually from 1944 to 1987. Miami won the initial meeting 19-7 and lead the all-time series 29-26. The rivalry is part of the Florida Cup, and formerly the winner would receive the Seminole War Canoe. However, this tradition was stopped in 1987 and is on permanent display in the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame.

Catholics vs. Convicts was one of the most heated rivalries on the late 1980s, which included a 58-7 Hurricanes victory in 1985. Although it is not the most natural rivalry, the two schools are scheduled to meet in 2016.
