Seminoles Weekly: Rivalry game of the season
One of the most important games of the season.
It’s November 2, 2013, the in-state, ACC rival Miami Hurricanes are coming to Doak Campbell Stadium to play against to the undefeated Florida State Seminoles.
Jameis Winston and Devonta Freeman took over the game leading the Seminoles to a 41-14 victory over the undefeated, Miami Hurricanes.
Even though the Hurricanes have one loss, we still have that same feeling we had on that November night. It’s the same feeling we get when ever these two teams play. On October 12, 2015 the Hurricanes will once again be going to Doak Campbell Stadium to play against the undefeated Seminoles in one of most important games of the season, not just because it is an ACC opponent but also for the pride of beating a rival.
Everyone seems to play bigger, better, and faster in this game. FSU right now has a streak of five consecutive wins and wants to continue that this weekend. The Hurricanes are coming of their first loss of the season against the Cincinnati Bearcats. That means this talented Miami team is looking for redemption not just for the recent loss, but for the five consecutive beat downs that have been served by the Noles in the last five years. Both teams will come out ready and fighting on Saturday night.
Even though the Seminoles do not have Jameis or Freeman anymore, they do have a solid quarterback in Everett Golson and an even better running back in Dalvin Cook. Cook is injured at the moment and is considered to be day to day right now, but should be safe to play against the rivals if he does not suffer any set backs.
Quarterback Everett Golson is showing more confidence in the past weeks. He is connecting with his receivers which he would need to be on the same page if they want to beat this University of Miami secondary. FSU just needs to continue what they are doing this season and they will be fine against Miami. Either way this FSU team is ready to win this important game against the ACC rivals in Tallahassee on Saturday night.
Game Prediction: Miami will come out swinging and will show that they are serious and are ready to win. FSU’s defense will pick it up and stop Brad Kaaya and the UM offenses for the most part, but Miami will score 31 points. The FSU offense will continue what they have been doing this entire season a healthy Cook will be running all over the Miami defense and Golson will be on the same page with his receivers and will ultimately score 28 points.
Final Score: Florida State 28 Miami 31
