At Florida State , this will be The Collapse. N'Kosi Perry threw four touchdown passes, and No. The game had the usual fare that comes with this rivalry: A pregame shout fest after warmups, the entire Miami roster getting an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for running across the field to come to the aid of injured receiver Jeff Thomas after he got pulled down by his face mask and was shaken up near a raucous Florida State sideline, and missed field goals by both teams in the final quarter. The Hurricanes, down , scored two touchdowns in a span of 42 seconds to get right back into the game, and then Perry connected with Brevin Jordan with left for what became the winning score - the one that would give Miami , Atlantic Coast Conference its first home victory over FSU since Perry's numbers weren't great - 13 for 32, yards - but he made big throws when they mattered. The go-ahead score to Jordan came one play after Perry threaded a yard throw to Thomas on third-and, meaning in the span of about a half-minute the Hurricanes went 73 yards for the lead.
Miami leads the series 33— Since the late s, one or both squads have been highly ranked entering the game, adding national championship implications to an already heated rivalry. Kicks have played an important role in the series with many wide right, wide left, blocks and other mistakes occurring with the game in the balance. The series has consistently drawn very high television ratings with the game being the most-watched college football game—regular-season or postseason—in ESPN history, and the and meetings being the second- and fifth-most watched regular season games, respectively. In one of the season's biggest shockers, FSU stunned Miami 24—0, in the season opener for both squads.
Miami remains undefeated in conference play and in the driver's seat of the ACC Coastal Division after holding off Florida State's best effort of the season and storming back from a double-digit halftime deficit in a rivalry win. After giving up seven straight to the Seminoles, Miami now has its own two-game run in the series behind Mark Richt, following up last year's late-game heroics with 21 unanswered points to close the game after trailing by 20 in the third quarter. A lot of credit goes to those guys, but somehow we gutted it out. It started with a turnover, and that beautiful turnover chain. Miami's defensive line finally showed the edge that many expected to see throughout the game in the second half as Gerald Willis, Joe Jackson and the rest of that group started to dominate in one-on-one battles and disrupt Florida State's offensive flow. As things started to sputter for the Seminoles, redshirt freshman N'Kosi Perry got into rhythm and threw three of his four touchdown passes in the final 20 minutes of the game. The home crowd voiced its displeasure with what appeared to be a conservative approach from a play-calling perspective, and when Perry was challenged to move the ball the down the field through the air, he often missed receivers though, while he completed less than half of his passes, there were no turnovers.
Comeback for the ages: No. 17 Miami stuns FSU, 28-27
For all the issues that the FSU football team has had to deal with during the first season of the Willie Taggart era — adapting to a new offense and defense, getting blown out in two of their first three games — all of that can be fixed come Saturday afternoon if the Seminoles can continue their dominance this decade of a hated rival. For the 63rd time in their history that dates back to the first meeting during the season, the Noles and the Miami Hurricanes will take the field inside Hard Rock Stadium with plenty on the table — FSU football going for their ninth win in the last 11 games of this series while looking to win their seventh straight game against Miami on their rented field.
