Miami at Florida State set for primetime kickoff

This past Saturday, the Florida State Seminoles and the Clemson Tigers played probably the biggest game in the history of the ACC. Albeit, the final score–Florida State 51-14–didn’t really match the hype, but it was still a landmark moment for the conference having two, top-ranked undefeated teams battling it out on a primetime national stage this far into the season.

But, people might be forgetting that there is another undefeated, top-10 team in the ACC and they’ll have their crack at the red-hot Seminoles on November 2nd.

And now, officially, that will be a primetime game as well when the ‘Canes travel to Tallahassee to take on Jameis Winston and the ‘Noles:


This is one of the most vicious rivalries in the history of college football, that was put on the map with games between the dominant teams of the 80s and 90s. Both teams have been inconsistent for the better part of the last decade or so, but now it seems that this rivalry is going back to its roots with national implications on the line.

In yesterday’s BCS rankings, Florida State came in at the number two slot, while Miami sits comfortably for right now at seven.
