CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The Miami Hurricanes will host two open scrimmages this spring, including one in Orlando.

Miami announced its spring practice schedule Tuesday.

There will be three scrimmages, two of which will be open to the public, and 12 on-campus practices at the Coral Soffer Indoor Practice Facility.

The first open scrimmage will be held April 13 at Nathaniel Traz-Powell Stadium. The second open scrimmage, which will conclude spring practice, will be held April 20 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, where the Hurricanes will open the 2019 season against Florida.

There will be free admission to both open scrimmages.

"We're excited to kick off spring football and we're also excited that our fans have two chances to see us scrimmage in April," first-year head coach Manny Diaz said. "It was important to us to have a scrimmage in Dade County, and we also have an opportunity to experience the setup at Camping World Stadium to conclude the spring."
