With the Ducks idle there is still college football to watch, some of it with major Duck implications.
#3 Florida State hosts #7 Miami Saturday night at 5:00 p.m. Pacific on ABC, both teams 7-0 and undefeated. If FSU wins, they are likely to get a bump that nudges them above Oregon in this week's BCS poll, although the Ducks can swap paint and pass them with a win over #6 Stanford on Thursday.
Jameis Winston has been sparkling as a first-year, redshirt freshman starter, poised in the pocket, a tremendous leader who throws a beautiful ball and doesn't carry himself the least bit like a freshman. He dismantled Clemson on the road a couple of weeks ago. For the season he's thrown for 2177 yards, 23 tds, 4 ints, completing just under 70% of his passes.

On paper, Saturday’s slate of Week 10 college football games look to serve as just an appetizer for Week 11′s high-stakes action. Four of the Top 6 teams (Alabama, Oregon, Stanford and Baylor) are on idle in the opening weekend of November, and each of those teams will be facing monumental tests on either Thurs, Nov. 7 or Sat, Nov. 9.

Florida State and Miami are both undefeated entering Saturday’s game between the teams in Tallahassee, but there’s no doubt who’s expected to win. The Seminoles are favored by 21 points, which is the largest spread for two top-10 teams meeting this late in the year since 1980, per pregame.com. But Jameis Winston, who has been […]
Florida State fans don’t just love redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston for his play on the field – he’s one of the most charismatic players in the nation too. Before today’s big top-ten showdown with Miami (FL), ABC showed a quick clip of Winston doing an amazing pregame handshake with coach Jimbo Fisher’s son Trey.
This thing took serious practice. Via @gifdsports.
Oregon students want to play Alabama. Auburn fans want to play Alabama. And of course, Florida State fans want to play Alabama too. After Jameis Winston and the Seminoles absolutely dominated another highly-ranked team tonight in the Miami Hurricanes, the FSU student body made it abundantly clear which team they want to play in January: the Crimson Tide:
It’s going to be a great...
The Miami-Florida State game on Saturday wasn’t officially a Miami-Florida State game until Bobby Hart and Anthony Chickillo scrapped early in the third quarter. Florida State had the ball at the Miami 31 in a 2nd-and-9 situation up 21-14. Jameis Winston completed a pass down to the 6 to give FSU 1st-and-goal, but flags were […]
Prior to Florida State's showdown against the Miami Hurricanes, Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston busted out a pretty intricate pre-game handshake with coach Jimbo Fisher's son.
This Florida State Seminole fan just stared into ABCs camera and didn’t blink. The hockey mask he is hearing must have taken some work. Florida State is playing the Miami Hurricanes tonight and Jameis Winston is showing you why he is a Heisman candidate. [ABC]
A year ago, Geno Smith was the Heisman Trophy favorite as we reached the season's midpoint -- but we all know how that turned out. Even the player who took the lead from him, Collin Klein, didn't leave Times Square in December with the 25-pound chunk of history in hand.
The point here, is that while it looks like the trophy is Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota's to...
No big-time college football game gets past the guys over at NMA. The Taiwanese animation studio has released yet another short clip to help preview this Saturday’s matchup between Florida State and Miami (FL). They take shots at ESPN’s Lee Corso for being old and Seminoles QB Jameis Winston for saying that the game is “a battle of brothers”. Enjoy:
I’ve got to admit that I’m disappointed in my readers. The only crrrrrazzy comments I get are from Paco and I can’t really take him seriously no matter how vitriolic and strident he gets because of that one time where he put all of his personal information in a comment and his name wasn’t even Paco. Hi, Paco, if you’re reading this one. I’m disappointed in the lack of...
The No. 7 Miami Hurricanes traveled to Tallahassee for another top-10 rivalry show down and for a half, the game was close. The Hurricanes came out strong by countering No. 3 Florida State’s early score on their first drive and tying the game at the end of the first quarter. Then, they kept pace at the half trailing by only 7 points after the Seminoles put up two scores on...
It’s been awhile, but the annual rivalry between the Miami Hurricanes and the Florida State Seminoles this season again resembling its heyday of yesteryear.

WVUM’s Chris Wittyngham continues his series of previews with this week’s Top 10 matchup between the Hurricanes and the Seminoles.
In this space ahead of the Wake Forest game, I wrote the following:
“Miami needs to take this opportunity to work out the kinks that we’ve seen in the last three games against this Wake team at home. If they don’t, Miami could be in for a close...
