Florida State opens as 21-point favorite over Miami

When the Florida State Seminoles got finished throttling the N.C. State Wolfpack yesterday, just hours after the Miami Hurricanes escaped a close one at home against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, the stage was officially set. One of the more storied rivalries in the history of college football would actually carry national implications once again when the two meet on the field in Tallahassee next week .

For the second time in three weeks, the ACC will be showcased in primetime when the Hurricanes go on the road to meet the ‘Noles next Saturday in, what very well could be, a Top 5 showdown, Top 10 at the very least. It’s been a while since the loser of this game meant that national title hopes were out the window for them, but they’ve both made it back to that point.

As much as this game will be hyped all week, however, most people throughout the country believe that the Seminoles are on a different level than the ‘Canes, regardless of record. Miami’s schedule has been quite shaky, along with their performances, while Florida State hasn’t even come close to tasting defeat, not even in Death Valley.

Well, it seems Las Vegas agrees with the majority of folks, as Florida State has opened as a 21-point favorite over Miami for their clash next week.
