CMU, Miami (Fla.) to Meet in 2026


MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. – Central Michigan Football will play at Miami (Fla.) on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2026, at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, CMU Zyzelewski Family Associate Vice President/Director of Athletics Amy Folan announced today.

“We remain focused on playing in areas of the country that have a strong CMU connections, whether it is through alumni development or recruiting future student-athletes,” Folan said “This is also an opportunity for our program to play in one of the best venues in the world, a place that has hosted the Super Bowl and other marquee events.”

It will be the second meeting between CMU and the Hurricanes. The Chippewas stood toe-to-toe with Miami at Hard Rock Stadium in 2019, never backing down in what turned into a battle of defenses. The Hurricanes got a 17-12 win in a game that saw CMU limit the Miami offense to 51 rushing yards and a one-for-10 mark on third down.

CMU’s 2026 schedule also includes games at New Mexico State (Sept. 5) and home against Wyoming (Sept. 19).
