The Florida State Seminoles moved to 8-0 on the season just moments ago as they routed the rival Miami Hurricanes at home, 41-14.
It was another dominant performance by the ‘Noles, something they’ve consistently shown all year. In all of their wins this season, including tonight, they have not scored less than 40 points. That stat was in serious jeopardy this evening, but a late fourth quarter Roberto Aguayo field goal made sure that it remained intact.
Yes, this is certainly a special Florida State team this season. They’re a throwback to the old days when FSU ran wild on their entire schedule and had themselves in position to compete for the national title every year.
It certainly has the fans feeling they have a legitimate shot at the crystal ball, because throughout the night, the record crowd of over 84,000 in attendance consistently made one point known as their team was blowing the seventh-ranked team in the country off the field:
FSU fans chanting “We want Bama! we want Bama!”

It’s not only the Seminoles’ fans that believe that a potential title match up between the Tide and the ‘Noles would be a game for the ages, but a lot of experts believe that as well. ABC analyst Kirk Herbstreit pointed this out once again this evening.
Only thing is, they need the Oregon Ducks to get out of the way as it appears the ‘Noles may be stuck in that number three slot and could potentially be left on the outside looking in if the Ducks don’t falter somewhere along the way.
A lot of those fans that were chanting for ‘Bama will be huge Stanford fans come this Thursday night, that much I know.
