The Miami Hurricanes front seven has been one of the best in the country this year. Florida State’s offensive line is one of the worst. If that continues the Canes should wreck havoc in the Seminoles backfield. Expect many meetings by the Miami linebackers and defensive lineman in FSU’s backfield.

Having Quarterman and safety Jaquan Johnson healthy for the remainder of the season will be vital for the Miami Hurricanes defense continue to be dominant this season. We found out early in the week they are healthy and will play.

Quarterman should play a full amount of snaps. Johnson is likely to be paced and play the bulk of snaps in the fourth quarter.

For only the third time in the rivalry’s history, the Miami Hurricanes were installed as a double-digit favorite. Miami opened as a 12.5 point favorite and the line moved up to 13.5 later in the week. Can the Hurricanes dominate that much? It’s a lot to ask in a rivalry that has been decided by 14 points in the last two seasons.

Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois is playing in his second Miami-Florida State game. Francois missed last season’s game with a season-ending Achilles injury suffered in the Seminoles season opener against Alabama. He enters the Miami game leading the ACC in yards and completions.

There are many keys in the game for both teams to succeed. The Hurricanes are also hoping to end a six-game losing streak at home to Florida State that dates back to their last home win versus the Seminoles in 2004. Miami’s defensive should also be able to stop Florida State’s offense.
