No. 12 Florida State at Miami, 8 p.m. Saturday, Ch. 28, 820-AM, 1040-AM
The Seminoles (6-1, 3-1 ACC) have held bragging rights after each of the past two meetings, including a one-sided 45-17 romp in the Seminoles' last visit to Miami two years ago, and they are about a three-touchdown favorite this time. The teams have combined for 322 points in their last five meetings; they combined for only 132 in the previous five matchups. It's a chance for both teams to stay at or near the top of their respective divisions in the ACC. Florida State enters the weekend as one of four teams with one or no loss in the Atlantic, and Miami (4-3, 3-1) is one of four teams with one loss in the Coastal.
Watch out for …
Florida State RB Chris Thompson vs. Miami's defense. Thompson is averaging 153 rushing and receiving yards in the Seminoles' past five games (getting more than 8 yards per touch in those situations). He's going up against a much-maligned Miami defense that's on pace to give up more yards and points than any team in school history, and one that saw its per-game average actually improve a bit last weekend by holding to North Carolina to 486 yards.
