Miami Hurricanes Will Bid Farewell to Orange Bowl

MIAMI _ As pregame tradition dictates, a cannon will boom and
white smoke will pour from a tunnel leading from the locker room.
The Miami Hurricanes will emerge and run east into the night,
traipsing across ground where John F. Kennedy spoke and Joe Namath
made good and the Miami Dolphins were perfect. A rusty old
building, nothing but steel and concrete and ghosts, will shake in
delight. And an era will end. For 70 years, the Hurricanes called
the Orange Bowl home. On Saturday night, the Hurricanes will play
there for the 468th time. The final time.
