Keys to Victory

Last week, the Seminoles squeaked out an eight-point victory over Wake Forest as star running back Dalvin Cook found himself limping on the sidelines after pulling his hamstring on a burst of speed outside. The injury later occurred after a 94 yard dash by Cook through the middle of the Demon Deacon defense.

In a victory, it was still sobering. As for Miami, the Hurricanes got clawed by the Cincinnati Bearcats 34-23 in a bad-looking defeat as the offense froze for the first time this season. The defeat acted as a firm reality check for Al Golden and the Canes.

A win for Florida State keeps them in the ACC championship race but a loss could rule them out from a Playoff spot, meanwhile an upset win for Miami could give them a boost to be surprise contenders.

Each teams strengths will meet on the field at a single time and both stand a chance to make or break the game for either squad. The Hurricanes have an underrated quarterback in Brad Kaaya who faces his toughest test yet against a stout Florida State defense that ranks 13th in total defense. The Hurricanes have the No. 27 ranked offense so it’s strength on strength.

Betting Odds

Point Spread: FSU – 9

Moneyline: + 280 Miami, -34- FSU

O/U: 51


Hurricanes quarterback Brad Kaaya attempts to be too perfect early in the game and throws a single, yet costly interception which allows the Florida State offense to only have to be methodical, not potent. A trait that should be looked at as a key throughout the rest of conference play. If Golson can play within himself and Cook is healthy, it should be enough to seal the victory for the Seminole faithful.

Final Score: Florida State: 27, Miami: 17
