One of college football's great rivalries highlights the Saturday night slate
When No. 12 Miami plays host to a reeling Florida State team Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium the Hurricanes will be going for a fourth consecutive victory vs. the Seminoles in one of the top modern rivalries in college football. The hype surrounding Miami is growing after last week's impressive 47-34 victory at Louisville while FSU is looking for their first victory of the season.

Miami quarterback D'Eriq King threw for 325 yards and three touchdowns vs. the Cardinals, showing that this new-look offense under the direction of new offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee has more versatility than the potent ground attack it showed in the season-opening victory against UAB. Miami's defense also got to show off the 2020 edition of the Turnover Chain (the Turnover Chain 4.0, to be specific) not just once but three times by the end of the evening, while also adding 10 tackles for loss in a performance that matched the aggressiveness of the up-tempo offense.

Florida State, meanwhile, spent the week trying to break down and fix the issues that contributed to another blown fourth quarter lead and a season-opening loss, this time to Georgia Tech in an ominous start to the Mike Norvell era. The Seminoles enter this rivalry game not only without a win in 2020 but without their coach on the sideline after Norvell tested positive for COVID-19. While the school says that Norvell has "remained actively involved with the program remotely," it will be deputy head coach Chris Thomsen who is handling the head coaching duties in-person Saturday night.
