We knew this game was hot from the start -- and we're not talking about the noon kickoff.
The University of Miami has announced that "following an unprecedented surge in ticket sales, all seats allotted for single-game purchases for the September 7 game vs. Florida are now sold out. The only remaining opportunity to buy a ticket to the Florida game is via a season ticket."
Season tickets begin at $20 per game for the least expensive package, according to UM.
The seven home games: FAU in the season opener at 8 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 30; the Gators at noon Sept. 7; Savannah State on Sept. 21; Georgia Tech (the Atlantic Coast Conference opener) on Oct. 5; Wake Forest on Oct. 26; Virginia Tech on Nov. 9; and Virginia on Nov. 23.
Tickets are still available on a single-game basis for all other home games, according to HurricaneSports.com. "Hurricane Club members may purchase seats now through their online account. Season-ticket holders may first purchase single-game tickets on Monday, July 29. Seats become available to the general public on Monday, August 5."
For more information or to order by phone, call the UM ticket office at 305-284-2263.
