Marquee Match-up: No. 7* Miami (Fla.) at No. 3* Florida State
Saturday, November 2 at 8 p.m. (ET) on ABC
Jameis Winston threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns in a little over two quarters of action during Florida State's 49-17 win over North Carolina State last weekend. All three scores and 229 of his passing yards came during a school-record 35-point first quarter scoring outburst by the Seminoles.
Stephen Morris and the Hurricanes needed a fourth quarter rally to dispatch a determined Wake Forest squad on Saturday to set up this weekend's renewal of one of college football's storied rivalries. Miami remains undefeated in 2013 and Morris is a big reason why. The senior quarterback has thrown for 1,463 yards and 10 touchdowns through seven games this season.
