UCLA and Miami will meet Dec. 5 at the Orange Bowl, making up a game postponed because of Hurricane Georges.
The teams were scheduled to play Sept. 26 in a game to be televised by CBS, but the threat from Georges prompted the postponement. Georges spared metropolitan Miami, hitting the lower Florida Keys instead.
"We worked very well between the University of Miami and UCLA, and we were able to overcome various obstacles," Miami athletic director Paul Dee said Monday.
UCLA is 4-0 and ranked No. 2 in the country.
"We are going to play the game," UCLA athletic director Peter Dalis said. "From the very beginning, I was inclined to play the game."
Originally scheduled for a noon EST kickoff, the game's new start time is still being negotiated, the athletic directors said.
