Miami And Temple Working On Home-And-Home Football Series

Two former Big East conference foes—Miami and Temple—are working on a deal to play for the first time since 2005.

Miami and Temple were both members of the Big East football conference from 1991-2014.

The two programs first met in 1930—a 34-0 blowout win for Temple. They did not meet again until 1992, and Miami has won every meeting since, holding a 13-1 edge in the all-time series.

Temple has had a bit of a resurgence in recent seasons under coaches like Al Golden, Steve Addazio, and most recently, Matt Rhule.

During AAC media day, conference commissioner Mike Aresco confirmed that the two sides are working on a deal for a 2020/2023 home-and-home.

While things aren't finalized, with Aresco discussing it publicly, it certainly appears that the rest is a formality.

According to The Inquirer, the 2020 game would be played in Philadelphia, with the 2023 return game taking place in Miami.

Interestingly, according to FBSchedules, this would give Miami three non-conference road games in 2020, with trips to Michigan State and FIU planned. In 2023, the 'Canes host Texas A&M.

Temple already has a 2020/2023 home-and-home with Rutgers scheduled, and hosts Idaho in 2020 and Duke in 2023.
