The third-ranked Florida State Seminoles will host the seventh-ranked Miami Hurricanes, it’s going to be the biggest game in this storied rivalry in quite some time.

Although Florida State has dominated the rivalry lately, winning six of the last eight matchups, including the last three, Miami has traditionally gotten the better of Florida State in these types of games.

That doesn’t bother redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston.

“When you have a great team, by it being a rivalry, those great players are going to turn into amazing players,” Winston told David M. Hale of ESPN. “It’s going to be a battle. We are expecting it to be a good game. There is a lot of pride on this game just because of what they have to lose and what we have to lose.”

All Winston has done since becoming the starting quarterback is lead the Seminoles to a 7-0 start and complete 128-of-183 passes for  2,177 yards with 23 touchdowns and four interceptions.

The Seminoles and Hurricanes will kickoff from Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Florida at 8:00 pm EST Saturday night. The game is on ABC.
