The No.7 Miami Hurricanes are going to travel to Tallahassee to take on the No.3 Florida State Seminoles. This is a rivalry that goes back decades and with both teams in the top 10 this season, it feels like the rivalry has been renewed. This game means a lot to both schools as they are both undefeated and it should be an entertaining game to watch.
Florida State is taking the country by storm with their success this season. Quarterback Jameis Winston is carrying this team to what could be a national championship appearance. Jameis is tied for 3rd in the nation with 23 touchdowns. His favorite target is junior receiver Rashad Greene. Greene has 699 yards and 8 touchdowns on the year. The Seminole defense has also been playing like a national championship defense. They’re ranked 8th in total defense and 1st against the pass allowing a measly 153.7 passing yards per game. For the No.3 Seminoles to get this win, they’ll need to show up on both sides of the football.
For Miami to get a win on Saturday, Duke Johnson is will need to have a huge game. The Canes barely got past a very bad Wake Forest team last week, and in my opinion are far from the 7th best team in the nation. While Miami has shown flashes of being a good team, I think there is very little they’ll be able to do to contain the Florida State offense.
I predict No.3 Florida State will win this game 55-28. Jameis Winston and the Seminoles are simply the better team and I’d be very surprised if they let Miami stick around for more than 2 quarters.

Jameis Winston walked into the room to talk with me for a few minutes and, seeing where we were planning to sit, started moving a mess of chairs around to clear a spot.
That might not sound like a big deal, but just know this: It doesn't happen with star athletes. Winston is the phenomenon of college football, a redshirt freshman quarterback leading Florida State in a national...

Miami may not be "back," but their opponent this weekend sure looks like they are. Florida State has climbed the rankings this season and now sits in a prime position to play for their first BCS title since the dawn of the BCS era. Although Oregon recently took...
If you haven’t heard, this Jameis Winston kid at Florida State is a pretty good football player. As such, it looks like he’s starting to get some “royal” treatment from his fan base.
While he may not yet have achieved the same level of popularity as Miami Heat superstar LeBron James, some Seminoles fans have created a pretty clever shirt to draw comparisons to the two. ...
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:
There's one way to stop the Florida State offense from reaching its average of 52.6 points per game - keep quarterback Jameis Winston and company on the sidelines.
That's the goal for No. 7 Miami when the Hurricanes travel to Tallahassee for a showdown with the third-ranked Seminoles on Saturday.
Most of that responsibility will fall on the shoulders of running back Duke...
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...
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...

Al.com columnist Kevin Scarbinsky thinks Florida State would be a much tougher matchup for Alabama than the Oregon Ducks.
If the choices are Oregon or Florida State, the two teams who've swapped the No. 2 BCS ranking behind Alabama the last two weeks, it's no choice. Give the Tide the Ducks.
Why? Florida State has a much better chance to man up to Alabama.
FSU has SEC...
