Florida State catapulted from No. 5 in the AP poll last week to No. 2 in the first BCS rankings this week following a convincing 51-14 road win over then-No. 3 Clemson. The Seminoles previously cut short Maryland’s Top 25 stay, topping the Terps, 63-0.

To say FSU has the most momentum in college football right now would be an understatement.

The Seminoles have one ranked team remaining on the schedule when they host No. 7 Miami (FL) on Nov. 2.

The chips are stacked against the Hurricanes in this matchup. FSU has won six of the last eight matchups against its South Beach rivals. Head coach Jimbo Fisher is 3-0 against Miami in his tenure at FSU and will be looking to remain perfect against the Huricanes in his fourth season.

Miami upended Florida, 21-16, in early September when the Gators were ranked No. 12 and the Hurricanes host No. 14 Virginia Tech a week after traveling to Tallahassee.
