The long wait is over, the FSU Seminoles destroyed the Miami Hurricanes Saturday night in one of the most exciting top ten matchups of the season. It seemed like good competition in the first half, but that changed quickly in the second as the Seminoles rolled over the Canes to a 41-14 victory. The win pushed FSU to a perfect 8-0 record, good for second in the BCS polls.
Freshman star quarterback Jameis Winston threw for 325 yards, but shockingly had two interceptions in the first half. This was very different for Jameis, who had only four interceptions total in the last seven games. The contest was exciting, as Miami was only down by one touchdown and the score was 21-14 going into halftime.
The closeness of the game did not last long after half. The Seminoles went on a 20-0 run, which resembled FSU’s win over Clemson just a few weeks ago. In the end, FSU outgained Miami 517-275, making it clear that Miami never had a chance. So far this season, FSU has defeated three top 25 teams, including Clemson, Miami and Maryland by a combined total score of 155-28. Clemson and Miami each had 14 points on FSU’s solid defense, while Maryland scored zero. No one ever had a chance.
Between so many great teams this season, the BCS polls have established a crazy ride. Since its release three weeks ago, FSU and Oregon have been back and forth between numbers two and three every week. FSU started at two in the first week, until Oregon crushed UCLA to prove they were the better team in week two. This week, FSU went back to their original spot behind Alabama because of their impressive win over Miami. It may be crazy, but Oregon has a great chance to take over their second best position again with a dominating win over Stanford on Saturday. After playing Stanford, Oregon still has to face Oregon State, while FSU’s only real remaining threat is Florida. Unfortunately for FSU, a loss to Florida can be very severe. Not only is a loss at this point in the game bad, but Florida’s terrible resume this year would make the fall even worse. Furthermore, a win over not ranked Florida may not be as impressive to the computers as Oregon’s possible win over Stanford and Oregon State. The Ducks will also face Utah who beat Stanford, and they then come across Arizona, who had beat Utah earlier this year. Even if FSU is the better team, the computer knows who has the better competition. The end of the fight to play Alabama in the BCS National Championship still is not in sight, as the last few weeks of play are extremely important.
