He took only a few moments to enjoy it all. With good reason. Miami-Notre Dame week awaits.

One of college football's best rivalries resumes on Saturday at Soldier Field in Chicago, when the Hurricanes (4-1) meet the ninth-ranked Fighting Irish (4-0), the start of a three-game series scheduled to resume with home-and-home meetings in 2016 and 2017.

They last met in 2010, an unplanned matchup put together by the Sun Bowl, when the Irish rolled past a Miami team that was reeling after the firing of former coach Randy Shannon.

“I've been waiting for this game since freshman year,” Morris said.

It's the first regular-season meeting between the teams since 1990, a 29-20 home win for Notre Dame.

To say that by then the relationship between the teams had grown icy would be putting it mildly and it wasn't until the summer of 2010 that the Hurricanes and the Irish agreed to play again, obviously neither side knowing at the time that the bowl meeting on Dec. 31 of that year would happen.
