Football season is here in Miami, and you'll want to know the best spots to see the game of the week if you're a Hurricane alum or fan expecting a big season. Of course, supporting your team in person is certainly ideal, but hitting one of the best bars to watch University of Miami games is a close second.

Sand Bar Sports Grille

Sandbar is just a quick drive from the University of Miami's campus, making it an ideal spot for students to catch the game. The bar boasts several TVs, so you won't miss a single play. Centrally located within Coconut Grove, it does get packed, so, be sure to arrive before the game kicks off if you want a good seat. The best part is that the drinks are affordably-priced!

Fritz and Franz is a preferred watering hole for soccer fans, but it attracts crowds during football season as well. It's an outdoor beer garden, or biergarten as they call it, so you'll have a cool drink in hand and the game in your sights under the warm Miami sun.

If you want wings on game day, Sports Grill is the place to be! Nothing pairs with football better than beer and a side of wings, especially excellent ones like at this bar and grill.

Ale House may be a chain, but it's still one of the best places to watch a University of Miami game. Located in Coral Gables, you'll find plenty of Hurricanes fans to be packed inside on game day. As always, you can expect drinks and food at low prices and one of the best local sports bar atmospheres.

Duffy's Sports Grill North Miami

If you live close to campus, you may wonder why someone would go so far away to watch a game. While North Miami is more than a skip away from campus, Duffy's makes the drive worth it. First, as the franchise's flagship location, there's a different energy here compared to the others. It's also the largest location with an outdoor area that rivals many full bars in size. Second, there's a pool in the back area and often a DJ or band playing on weekends, so you can expect the place to be pretty boisterous. Third, it boasts the same all-day two-for-one drink specials Duffy's is known for.
