Weather forces Miami Hurricanes to practice in the Dolphins' indoor bubble

CANES IN THE BUBBLE

The Hurricanes moved their Saturday practice to the Miami Dolphins’ indoor practice facility in Davie.

Practice – closed to the public and media – was originally scheduled for 1:30 p.m., but was moved up to 1 p.m. “because of the weather conditions,’’ said UM director of communications Chris Yandle. “It rained in Miami all morning.’’

The university announced Saturday afternoon that it would be closing at 7 p.m. and would remain closed through Monday.

“We will resume operations Tuesday as of now,’’ Yandle said Saturday evening.

The Canes, who will open the season Sept. 1 at Boston College, are also scheduled for a Sunday practice session. Yandle said that session is obviously dependent on the weather as well.

SENIOR BOWL WATCH LIST

Four Miami Hurricanes are among 312 seniors named to the 2013 Senior Bowl Watch List, game officials announced.

Senior running back Mike James, cornerback Brandon McGee, defensive tackle Darius Smith and safety Vaughn Telemaque are the UM representatives on the Senior Bowl’s inaugural watch list. The top 100 seniors in the nation will be invited to participate in the 2013 Senior Bowl, which is set for Jan. 26 at Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium.
