The Seminoles will head down to Miami for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff against the Hurricanes. The game will be televised in front of a national audience as ABC handles the broadcast.
This is the second year in a row that the heated rivalry has been broadcast at 3:30 p.m. instead of it’s more familiar 8 p.m. time slot. After the kickoff time was placed on a six day hold to see how this weekend unfolds, it felt like a Florida State win could push the kickoff to prime time. But alas, it did not, and it’s a mid afternoon kick for the ‘Noles.
Miami will come into the game at 4-1 and ranked 16th in the country after rattling off four wins following their opening weekend loss to LSU.
Florida State has done some rebounding themselves and will enter the contest at 3-2 on a two game win streak.
Following an exhilarating road win in Louisville, the Seminoles will look to ride that momentum as they make their way to Hard Rock Stadium next weekend. The ‘Noles will be out for revenge for last year when the Hurricanes were able to score a late go-ahead touchdown with just six seconds left on the clock, and escape Doak Campbell with a victory.
