Florida State 33, Miami 20 - F

The Florida State Seminoles hung on to beat the Miami Hurricanes in Coral Gables, 33-20 on Saturday night.

In a gritty, back-and-forth defensive struggle, Florida State (7-1, 4-1) scored 17 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to blow the game wide open. Miami jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead after two FSU turnovers, but couldn't gain any momentum in the key points of the game.

Miami QB Stephen Morris played through an ankle injury, but wasn't able to help Miami knock off its ACC rival.

Florida State running back Chris Thompson went down with a left knee injury in the second quarter, and did not return to the game. Devonta Freeman scored two touchdowns in his absence.

Thanks for sticking with me tonight as we watched this classic rivalry. Both teams had a chance to win, and it was one of those games that threw all the numbers out the window. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, and if this Florida State team can avoid all the needless penalties, they're as tough an out as any team in the country.
