Miami Hurricanes unveil incredible 2020 Turnover Chain after Al Blades Jr.’s interception
The Miami (Fla.) "Turnover Chain," one of the most famous pieces of jewelry in college football, is back.
The fourth iteration of the Hurricanes' award given to defensive players who come up with turnovers was unveiled in the second quarter of the Miami's game Saturday night against the Louisville Cardinals.
Al Blades Jr. had the honor of wearing the chain, which is gaudier than ever, for the first time this season when he picked off Louisville QB Malik Cunningham.
This year's edition features "The U" logo over top the entire state of Florida – the logo intentionally covering up Tallahassee (home to Florida State) and Gainesville (University of Florida), creator AJ Machado told the Sun-Sentinel (Florida). According to Machado, there are 4,000 sapphires in the charm that is attached to a 10-karat gold chain.
Thank you so much, @AlBlades_Jr.

The original turnover chain, first given out under former coach Mark Richt in 2017, featured "The U" logo. In 2018, Hurricanes mascot Sebastian the Ibis adorned the chain. Last year, "The U" logo returned atop a giant "305" charm that represents Miami's area code.
