WIth there of their last four games on the ACC Network or regional sports networks, the Hurricanes and Seminoles get the prime kickoff time and key national attention on ESPN. Miami and Florida State were on ABC in 2020.

The Hurricanes and Seminoles played in primetime in front of a limited crowd of 12,806 at Hard Rock Stadium in 2020. Florida State has had a streaky season. The Seminoles began 2021 with four straight losses followed by three straight wins. Florida State will host Miami with two straight losses.

Miami alternated losses and wins through their first four games. The Hurricanes lost their next two to drop to 3-4. Miami has won three straight games to go over .500 for the first time in 2021. The Hurricanes have not lost in Tallahassee since 2015 and have a four-game winning streak against the Seminoles.

The 52-10 victory Miami had over Florida State at Hard Rock Stadium in 2020 was the most points scored by one team in the rivalry.

Miami has dominated Florida State defensively in the last three seasons. The Seminoles offense has not scored more than 21 points as Miami has extended their streak. Florida State had a punt return for a TD in a 28-27 loss at Hard Rock Stadium in 2018 and lost 27-10 to Miami at home in 2019.
