Saying Goodbye to an Old Friend

For years the college football season could mean only one thing, The big Horseshoe in Little Havana. But come next year that will come to an end as U moves to their new home Dolphins Stadium.

While the Orange Bowl was not the most modern stadium it offered the U a place they could call home. From the smoke at the start of the games to the open stadium at the one end, it gave the Canes the grit and drive they would need to burst onto the college football landscape.
Over the years the U history's books are full of great memories included Orange Bowl battles with Nebraska and classic regular season games with Florida State. During their time in the broken down all building the Canes won 57 in a row at one point.

Orange Bowl you will be missed. Steward Mandel does a great story on what made the OB great.
