The Miami Hurricanes will kick off their 2014-15 football season Labor Day against the Louisville Cardinals in a rematch of their 36-9 Russell Athletic Bowl loss this past December. Much has changed in just a few short months -- both teams will sport new quarterbacks and many different starters this time around. Both schools saw their QBs from the bowl game head to the NFL, with the Cardinals' Teddy Bridgewater going to the Vikings and the Canes' Stephen Morris playing for the Jaguars.
The game promises to set the tone for the Hurricanes' latest attempt at returning to the pinnacle of college football. A win could catapult the team into the Top 25. A loss would almost ensure Miami's ceiling this season would be an ACC championship -- so a lot is on the line in the opener.
