The 1926 Miami Hurricanes football team represented the University of Miami during the 1926 college football season. The team was only a freshman team, but was the first to play football for the university,[1] before competition took place, plans for a 50,000 seat stadium were proposed by university president Dr. Bowman Ashe. Work began on a temporary, 8,000-seat structure when on September 17, 1926 a hurricane destroyed much of South Florida, killing more than 130 people, and removing any plans of a football stadium,[2] this postponed the season, and gave the team its nickname of "Hurricanes."[3]
