FSU vs. Miami: A look at the statistically even matchup
A little under three years ago, the Miami Hurricanes traveled to Tallahassee, Florida, to take on the Florida State Seminoles. The No. 7 Hurricanes attempted to keep their 7-0 winning streak alive against the No. 3 Seminoles. However, they failed with a disappointing 41-14 score.
To be fair, this was a Miami team that by the end of the season only posted a top-10 record for kickoff returns, and they played the Seminole team that had Jameis Winston, who went on to win the Heisman that year and ranked within the top-10 nationally for total offense, team passing efficiency, scoring offense, third-down conversion percentage, fourth-down conversion percentage, red zone offense, total defense, passing yards allowed, passing efficiency defense, scoring defense and kickoff returns, according to NCAA Stats.

Florida State and Miami look to be much more evenly matched coming into their Week 6 game, but just how close are they?
The two teams will face each other on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. ET at Miami. No matter the outcome, this looks to be an interesting ACC matchup and could possibly determine how the rest of the season plays out for each team.
