MIAMI GARDENS, FLORIDA (Miami Hurricanes) — The Miami Hurricanes earned the reputation of being a big game team in the 1980s and 90s, but the 2017 Canes looked like some of the legendary UM teams of the past in their dominant 41-8 victory over No. 3 Notre Dame Saturday night.
The No. 7 Hurricanes (9-0, 6-0 ACC) faced the rival Fighting Irish (8-2) in Miami for the first time in nearly three decades and they, along with a loud crowd of 65,303 fans at Hard Rock Stadium, made sure to remind Notre Dame of what it was like to play the Canes in their home stadium.
“What a wonderful night for our fans, for our players, every single person who’s a part of this program,” Miami head coach Mark Richt said.
“It’s amazing what can happen when everybody works together and just cares about each other, loves each other and just trusts each other enough for everybody to do their job. Just really impressed with our team tonight. Notre Dame, without a doubt, is a great team. It’s obvious. It just got away from them. I never would have predicted what happened, but it happened and I’m thankful for it and I’m proud of the guys.”
Miami’s win snapped a four-game losing streak against the Irish and was its sixth consecutive home victory over Notre Dame dating back to 1981. It also extended the Hurricanes’ FBS-leading win streak to 14 games.
The Canes’ last loss came at Notre Dame on Oct. 29, 2016.
