Florida State vs. Miami: Game Preview, Prediction and Players to Watch

What’s old is new again in college football, with past great programs such as Colorado, Nebraska and Washington all experiencing a resurgence this season. The same can be said for the Florida State-Miami rivalry, which will feature both teams ranked for the first time since 2013 and only the third time in the last 10 meetings.

Miami (4-0, 1-0 ACC) is 10th in the latest Associated Press poll, its highest ranking since October 2013 when it was 7-0 heading to Florida State but lost 41-14. The Seminoles (3-2, 0-2) are No. 23 after losing on a last-second field goal at home to North Carolina and are off to their worst start in ACC play since 2011.

This series has featured plenty of great finishes, particularly in the 1980s and 1990s when both programs were at their pinnacle, though of late it’s been all FSU. Will the Seminoles claim a seventh straight win over Miami or will the Hurricanes continue their hot start under first-year coach Mark Richt?
