NCAA FCS Football Championship Selection Special - Miami Hurricanes football - Netflix

The Miami Hurricanes football team represents the University of Miami in the sport of American football. The Hurricanes compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)'s Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and the Coastal Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). The program began in 1926 and has won five AP national championships (1983, 1987, 1989, 1991, 2001). The Miami Hurricanes are among the most storied and decorated football programs in NCAA history. Miami is ranked fourth on the list of All-time Associated Press National Poll Championships, tied with Southern California and Ohio State and behind Alabama, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma. Miami also holds a number of NFL Draft records, including most first-round selections in a single draft and most consecutive drafts with at least one first-round selection. Two Hurricanes have won the Heisman Trophy and nine have been inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame. The team plays its home games at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The Hurricanes are currently coached by Mark Richt.

NCAA FCS Football Championship Selection Special - Turnover Chain - Netflix

In 2017, the Miami Hurricanes began to award its “Turnover Chain,” an honor that contains a 36-inch, 2.5-kilogram, 10-karat gold chain, with 900 orange and green sapphire stones arranged in a “U” that is 6.5 inches wide. It is presented during a game to any defensive player who forces a turnover. Through the 11 regular-season games Miami played in 2017, the Hurricanes' defense created 29 turnovers (17 passes intercepted, 12 fumbles recovered), the third most in FBS football. During the same period, Miami gave up 12 turnovers (throwing 9 interceptions, and losing 3 fumbles); the net gain of 17 turnovers resulted in a margin of +1.55 per game. That figure represents the greatest margin in the nation this year, an achievement shared with Central Florida.
