The 1985 Miami Hurricanes football team represented the University of Miami during the 1985 NCAA Division I-A football season. They were led by head coach Jimmy Johnson and played their home games at the Miami Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida.



Miami's 600th game in school history was against Colorado State.

Notre Dame

Miami scored the most points in a game since 1967. The Hurricanes scored on their first four possessions, the fifth was ended when time ran out of halftime and then they proceeded to score the first four times they got the ball in the second half.


Jimmy Johnson and his staff had several key recruits in the 1985 class including QB Steve Walsh and RB Eric Metcalf. Jimmy also continued collecting talent from Florida, "Ten of the 19 signees are from Florida. Last year, 18 of the 25 high school players who signed letters were from Florida (11 from Dade and Broward), and 19 of 26 who signed in 1983 were from Florida (nine from Dade and Broward)."
