Coral Gables, FL (AP) - The last three matchups between
Florida State and Miami have something in common. All have been
offensive showcases.
Saturday's 55th renewal of the series might be different.
The best two defenses in the Atlantic Coast Conference so far
this season will take the field in Miami, when the 13th-ranked
Hurricanes (3-1, 1-0) host the 23rd-ranked Seminoles (4-1, 2-0).
Miami is giving up 266.8 yards per game, Florida State 293.4 --
and the teams are ranked Nos. 1 and 2 nationally in both sacks
(with Florida State leading) and tackles for loss (with Miami
leading).
The teams have combined for 218 points in their last three
meetings. This season, Miami is giving up 15 points per game,
Florida State 15.4.
