The 2013 athletic season is drawing ever-nearer, with training camp just weeks away. Whether you are a football lover or just enjoy the roar of an excited crowd, now is the time to get pumped for football season.

Miami football delivers thrills to fans of all ages, and both national- and college-level teams are positioned for success this season. The Miami Dolphins, with their newly-revamped offense complete with Mike Wallace, Dustin Keller, Brandon Gibson and others, are ready to hit the ground running.

The Dolphins have a full lineup of home games for the upcoming season. The first at-home kickoff is set for September 22nd against the Atlanta Falcons, followed by a match-up with the Baltimore Ravens on October 6th. Take in the October 20th game against the Buffalo Bills or skip the trick-or-treating in favor of a football game when the Dolphins play the Cincinnati Bengals on Halloween. The team will be back in town by mid-November, battling the San Diego Chargers on November 17th and will move on to the Carolina Panthers on November 24th. Finally, late season promises explosive competition, as the Dolphins take on the New England Patriots on December 15th and finish the home season against their arch rivals, the New York Jets, on December 29th.

The competition in the college arena is sometimes even fiercer, so get ready for the University of Miami's Hurricanes 2013 season. The Hurricanes are one of the top college football teams in the country with 5 championships to their name, so fans know that the team will bring their best.

The Hurricanes, spearheaded by quarterback Stephen Morris, begin their home season with a series of games against other Florida schools. On August 30th, the team takes on Florida Atlantic, followed by match-ups against Florida on September 7th and Savannah State on September 21st. Two games in October, with Georgia Tech on October 5th and Wake Forest on October 26th, followed by an additional two in November, against Virginia Tech on the 9th and Virginia on the 23rd round out the Hurricanes' season at Sun Life Stadium.

Aside from the thrill of the game, what could make a Miami trip even more worthwhile? An all-out vacation, that's what.
