Best Places To Watch The Hurricanes Season Opener Saturday

The 2012 Miami Hurricanes football season is upon us, and fans are restless. Their beloved Canes are coming off a horribly mediocre 6-6 last season and are still in the shadows of a looming NCAA investigation. That won't stop Cans fans from packing sports bars every Saturday in support of their beloved U.

No matter where in the country you happen to be rocking the green and orange, the University of Miami Alumni Association has a safe haven for you to go and cheer your beloved Canes. The biggest U party outside of Miami will take place in Boston, where the Canes open the season today playing conference rivals Boston College. Fans start gathering at noon for a 3:30 kickoff on the second floor of Cityside Bar & Tavern (1960 Beacon Street, Cleveland Circle, Brighton, Massachusetts). The Canes are favored on most betting lines despite being on the road with a fairly inexperienced starting quarterback in junior Stephen Morris.
