There is no football game that can generate as much heat and excitement under the Florida sun than the match-up featuring Miami versus Florida State. The legendary rivalry between these two top-notch teams is sure to have fans on their feet at American Social, and across the entire Sunshine State, as the game kicks off at 8pm this Saturday, October 8th.

The Teams

We’re not blowing hot air when we say that head coach Mark Richt has whipped the Miami Hurricanes into shape this year. After beating Georgia Tech last week, the team has earned their 4-0 record and current spot at number 10 in the Associated Press rankings.

On the other side of the field, the Florida State Seminoles started the season ranked in the Top 5, but lost to another Top 5 team, Louisville, in week three and suffered a last second field goal defeat to North Carolina last week. Nonetheless, under the leadership of head coach Jimbo Fisher and with a 3-2 record, the team is still ranked at number 23 in the current AP poll.

The Game

The most anticipated rivalry game of the year will take place at 8pm this Saturday, October 8th at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

Florida State has prevailed in the past six meetings against the Hurricanes. However, the Hurricanes have blown past some tough competitors on their way to their meeting with the Seminoles this year. If they can shut down Florida State’s offense and score a few touchdowns of their own, they have a good shot of securing victory on the field.
