The Miami football team will make its second straight appearance on ESPN College Gameday and the ABC Primetime game of the Week against Florida State Saturday night.

The Miami football team will bring a 2-0 record into their annual rivalry game with 0-1 Florida State on Saturday. ESPN Gameday will telecast from Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday morning and the ABC Primetime Game of the Week will feature the Hurricanes for the second week in a row.

Miami brings a three-game winning streak against Florida State to the game on Saturday night. After winning close games in 2017 to break a seven-game losing streak to the Seminoles and in 2018, Miami dominated last season in Tallahassee. Miami used nine sacks and a deep passing game in a 27-10 victory.

The Miami offense has been far more explosive through two games this season than they were even against Florida State in 2019. Miami should be able to continue that against a Seminoles defense that allowed 438 yards against Georgia Tech. FSU escaped allowing only 16 points because of three blocked kicks.

Florida State will be without head coach Mike Norvell who it was announced last Saturday tested positive for the Coronavirus. Norvell will be replaced by Chris Thomsen as the interim head coach and Kenny Dillingham as the offensive play-caller. The Norvell tenure at Florida State has gotten off to an arduous beginning.

The game on Saturday gives the Miami football program a chance to be on national TV both during the pregame show on ESPN College Gameday and in the ABC College Football Primetime Game of the Week.
