FUTURE SERIES.@BYUfootball @CanesFootball pic.twitter.com/vB1OJPnTV5— BYU FOOTBALL (@BYUfootball) August 12, 2021
The good news keeps rolling in. College Football insider Brett McMurphy is reporting that BYU and Miami are scheduling a home-and-home series. BYU will travel to Miami in 2026 and Miami will go to Provo in 2028. This would be the first time both schools have played since BYU beat #1 Miami in Provo in 1990.
Sources: Miami, BYU adding home/home series (2026 at UM, 2028 at BYU). Last meeting was 1990 season opener when No. 16 ranked BYU upset No. 1 UM 28-21 in Provo— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) August 12, 2021
BYU’s win over #1 Miami in 1990 was one of the most iconic wins in BYU history and a huge reason why QB Ty Detmer won the Heisman Trophy. BYU-Miami haven’t met since and will renew that historic matchup.
BYU currently has 7 games schedule for the 2026 season and Miami will make 8.
- at Troy
- vs Arizona
- at Utah
- at Virginia Tech
- vs Utah State
- Boise State
- at Stanford
Miami isn’t quite the program it was 20+ years ago when they were routinely competing for national titles, but they are one of the most iconic programs in college football and will no doubt be a test for BYU.
