CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - For the first time in nearly three years, the Miami Hurricanes got to have a bowl practice.

The NCAA investigation into the acts of a former booster kept the Hurricanes from the postseason in 2011 and 2012. But with that probe now complete and the sanctions handed down, Miami will be accepting a bowl trip this weekend, probably to either the Russell Athletic Bowl or the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

So for nearly two hours Saturday, in 85-degree heat, the Hurricanes worked out. Many upperclassmen got the day off, with the practice geared primarily toward those who will be playing for Miami next season.

Hurricanes coach Al Golden says he's relishing the chance to finally take Miami to a bowl game.
