MiamiHerald / It is three seasons from now. If you believe the hopeful supposition that the Miami Hurricanes’ ascending football program might realistically be a few seasons from truly being back – from being national championship back – then start dreaming, South Florida.
UM has won three of its five national titles (1983, 1987, 1991) in its home stadium.
It could happen again.
The chance of that, at least, arose Wednesday like fireworks over the Miami skyline, when the College Football Playoff unexpectedly awarded the 2021 national championship game to South Florida and Hard Rock Stadium. It will be the title game following the 2020 regular season, to be played on Jan. 11, 2021, the seventh championship game of the CFP era and first played here. Is that enough incentive for you, Mark Richt?
