Less then a year after a disheartening loss to Miami by a missed field goal, FSU went down to Miami for a little bit of revenge.
The Hurricanes, the 1991 National Champions, were rolling with a 20 game win streak and a No. 2 ranking. FSU, on the other hand, came into the game undefeated with a No. 3 ranking.
FSU jumped out to a quick lead as Tamarick Vanover returned the opening kick of 94 yards for a touchdown. Miami came back and scored 10 unanswered points to take a 10-7 lead.
FSU would add a field goal to tie the score at ten heading into halftime.
The second half became a defensive battle as FSU would score the next six points with two field goals to take a 16-10 lead with just nine minutes remaining in the game.
Miami responded on the very next possession as Gino Torreta found Lamar Thomas for a 33 yard touchdown pass to put Miami in the lead at 17-16.
Both defenses held tight, but when Miami punted to the Seminoles Corey Sawyer, he attempted an illegal forward pass while in the end zone, resulting in a safety for Miami, now giving them a 19-16 lead.
The FSU defense held strong again, forcing Miami to punt the ball to FSU with just 1:35 left to play.
Seminoles stand out quarterback Charlie Ward conducted a 59 yard drive to take the ball to Miami's 22 yard line with just seconds to spare.
In came the Seminoles kicker Dan Mowrey to try and tie the game with a 39 yard field goal, but the kick went wide right for the second straight year against the Hurricanes.
All ended well in 1992 for the Seminoles as they never lost another game and ended up second in the overall standings.
Miami went on to play in the National Championship game, losing to Alabama and ending up in thirds, one spot below the Seminoles.
