For the first time since 2013, the Miami Hurricanes will travel to Doak Campbell Stadium to take on the Florida State Seminoles. At the moment, the futures line lists Florida State as 10 point favorites.

So far this year, Florida State has covered on two of their four games this season while Miami has covered on two of their four games as well, but have not covered in the past two weeks.

When these teams met last year in Sun Life Stadium, Florida State was a 2.5 point favorites and covered, winning 30-26 as the teams hit the under.

In 2013, at Doak Campbell, Florida State was a 22 point favorite over Miami, a record for two top 10 teams. The Noles covered in that game as well, winning 41-14.

The game will be a test for the Florida State defense as they will try to counter the strong Miami Hurricane offense led by Brad Kaaya.

UPDATE: Florida State will walk into Doak Campbell Stadium as an 8.5 point favorite over the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday.

What do you think, Seminole fans? Is that point spread a fair one?
