Miami will achieve a notable milestone when it takes on visiting Florida State on Saturday. It will be the Hurricanes’ second consecutive appearance on “College GameDay” — the first time in program history.
The 12th-ranked Hurricanes (2-0) will play host to rival Florida State (0-1) in the first rivalry game of the 2020 season. And while Hard Rock Stadium will only allow 13,000 capacity amid the COVID-19 pandemic, expect those who do show up to make it as troublesome an atmosphere as possible for the visiting Seminoles.

That said, it looks on paper as if Miami should have no problem against FSU, which struggled mightily in its season-opening upset against Georgia Tech and second-year coach Geoff Collins. The Seminoles jumped out to a 10-point lead behind quarterback James Blackman, but could only muser one more field goal in the 16-13 loss. Moreover, FSU will be without first-year coach Mike Norvell on the sideline after he tested positive for the coronavirus on Sept. 18.
Miami, meanwhile, is rolling after a 47-34 romp over Louisville in Week 3. Florida State’s defense should offer up a tougher challenge for D’Eriq King and the rest of Miami’s offense than Louisville did, but if FSU can’t find a way into the end zone it could be a long day for the Noles.
