The Miami-Florida State rivalry dates back to 1951, when the Hurricanes defeated the Seminoles 35-13 in their inaugural meeting.

The rivalry has been such a large success on a national media basis that the two highest rated college football games in ESPN history are owned by these two teams.

The 1994 game between the two clubs was the highest rated college football game in ESPN history with a 7.7 rating. The 2006 game was the most viewed college football game in ESPN history averaging  6.3 million households for a 6.9 rating.

In the span of 19 years, 1983 to 2002, Miami and Florida State combined to play in 14 National Championships, winning 7 of them.

Here is a look back of one of the greatest rivalries in college football.
