FSU football will be taking on their arch-rival Miami Hurricanes on Saturday, November 11th in the confines of a sold-out Doak Campbell Stadium.
Fans were patiently awaiting the kickoff time to be announced for when the Seminoles take on the Hurricanes. On Sunday afternoon, it was decided that Florida State would be facing off against Miami at 3:30 PM EST on ABC.
I completely understand that most individuals wanted a night game in Doak Campbell Stadium, given that there would be several highly-touted prospects in attendance plus the atmosphere of the stadium is certainly unforgettable.
However, head football coach Mario Cristobal and company lost out on their opportunity to play Florida State under the lights as they were defeated on the road by the North Carolina State Wolfpack by a score of 20-6.
While the Hurricanes have fell to a 6-3 record on the season, it seems like always rejuvenate the program down South as they treat this as an opportunity to spoil their rival’s undefeated season as they look forward to positive trajectory heading into Cristobal’s third season in Coral Gables.
The Florida State football team understand what is at stake given the implications of the rivalry game. While the Seminoles are coming off a lackadaisical performance (a victory is a victory in college football) to the hands of the Pittsburgh Panthers by a score of 24-7, this could be a perfect opportunity to get things ironed out.
Miami will try to give Florida State its A+ effort as they look to go into Tallahassee with a much-needed victory. I realize that fans were wanting the opportunity for Tallahassee to finally host a College GameDay, especially considering that this could be Lee Corso’s final year on the show.
Nonetheless, FSU fans will hopefully be able to celebrate yet another victory over the Hurricanes in the near future.
