With the Miami Hurricanes currently undefeated and ranked in the Top-10, it’s hard for ‘Canes fans not to reminisce about the good ol’ days of the 80s, when they brought the “swag” that took over the college football universe.

On Saturday, before their home game against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons inside Sunlife Stadium, the program will pay homage to one of the stars that helped build that legacy.

1986 Heisman Trophy winner, QB Vinny Testaverde, will be honored at the game on Saturday. Testaverde, who will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame at the end of this calendar year, will also receive a National Football Foundation On-Campus Salute before the game, which is customary for any player getting ready to receive a Hall induction.

Testaverde will also be the honory team captain for the Hurricanes on Saturday.

During his career at Miami, the former consensus First Team All-American was 23-3 as a starter and led the ‘Canes to three bowl berths.

The former star has already been inducted into the Miami Sports Hall of Fame in 1998.
