Description: This artistic rendering of the 1983 Ring, commemorates the Miami Hurricanes Football National Championship versus the University of Nebraska. Less than a decade removed from a period of uncertainty in which there was open talk of dropping the football program, the 1983 Miami Hurricanes stunned the college football world by defeating the top-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers, 31- 30, in the Orange Bowl to cap an 11-1 season. The victory was monumental — for UM football and for college football in general. It was monumental not only because the Cornhuskers were widely considered to be among the most powerful teams in college football history, but it also heralded the dawn of a new dynasty in the sport from a program that had been all but dead just a few short years earlier. That victory — combined with losses by second-ranked Texas in the Cotton Bowl and Illinois in the Rose Bowl — vaulted the Hurricanes into the top spot in the final national rankings. Miami was the first national championship team without a single player making an All-America first team voted by AP, UPI, the Football Writers Association or the College Football Coaches Association. The Hurricanes were only the second national title team to gain more passing yards than rushing yards. “It’s a tribute to a lot of gutty players and a real team effort,” head coach Howard Schnellenberger said.
