2022 Miami Hurricanes Football Schedule: Dates, Times, & Analysis

The year 2022 brings a new era of Miami Hurricanes football. It’ll be headed by new head coach Mario Cristobal, who enters by way of the Oregon Ducks. In four years as the head coach in Eugene, all Cristobal did was win back-to-back PAC-12 Championships and a Rose Bowl victory.

The offense will look different with former Michigan Wolverines offensive coordinator and 2021 Broyles Award winner Josh Gattis leading the way. Tyler Van Dyke is an emerging star at the quarterback position after throwing for at least 300 yards and three touchdowns in each of his last six games. The Hurricanes return 14 starters but have non-divisional games against Texas A&M and Clemson.

Here’s a look at Miami’s schedule with dates, times, opponents, and analysis:

Week 1 – vs. Bethune-Cookman Wildcats

Date: September 3

Time: 3:30 p.m. ET

Miami is 5-0 in this matchup, with an average winning margin of nearly 40 points. The Bethune-Cookman Wildcats finished just 2-9 a year ago.

Week 2 – vs. Southern Miss Golden Eagles

Date: September 10

Time: 12:00 p.m. ET

This will mark the first-ever meeting between these two programs. The Southern Miss Golden Eagles finished just 3-9 a year ago but enter Year 2 under Will Hall with 17 returning starters.

Week 3 – at Texas A&M Aggies

Date: September 17

Time: 9:00 p.m. ET

This is the Hurricanes’ most difficult non-conference matchup by far. Miami has won two of the three previous meetings, with the most recent occurrence in 2008.

Week 4 – vs. Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders

Date: September 24

Time: TBD

Surprisingly, Miami has lost both of the prior meetings. It makes a bit more sense when you consider the last time they played was in 1932.

Week 5 – BYE

Week 6 – vs. North Carolina Tar Heels

Date: October 8

Time: TBD

Miami has lost three straight in this matchup. Last year’s game saw the North Carolina Tar Heels narrowly secure a home victory in a 45-42 shootout.

Week 7 – at Virginia Tech Hokies

Date: October 15

Time: TBD

Blacksburg isn’t an easy place to play, but the Hurricanes have come away victorious in three of their last four trips. It looks like a rebuilding year for the Virginia Tech Hokies in Year 1 under Brent Pry.

Week 8 – vs. Duke Blue Devils

Date: October 22

Time: TBD

The Hurricanes have won two of the last three meetings and are 7-1 in the previous eight meetings at home.

Week 9 – at Virginia Cavaliers

Date: October 29

Time: TBD

Miami has won five of the last seven meetings. The Virginia Cavaliers must replace its entire offensive line in Year 1 under Tony Elliot, but quarterback Brennan Armstrong returns with a loaded receiving corps. 

Week 10 – vs. Florida State Seminoles

Date: November 5

Time: TBD

The Hurricanes have won four of the last five meetings.

Week 11 – at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Date: November 12

Time: TBD

This could be considered a look-ahead spot as it’s the first of back-to-back road games with the Clemson Tigers on deck. Miami has won nine of the last 12 meetings.

Week 12 – at Clemson Tigers

Date: November 19

Time: TBD

A matchup that could define the Hurricanes’ season comes on November 19 against the Clemson Tigers. It’s a relatively soft schedule other than Texas A&M in mid-September and a challenging final two games to end the year.

Week 13 – vs. Pittsburgh Panthers

Date: November 25

Time: TBD

Miami has dominated this series, winning 14 of the last 16 meetings.
