The Florida State Seminoles overcame an eight point deficit in the final quarter to defeat in-state rival Miami, 31-28, on Saturday night. The victory over the Hurricanes was the first for the Seminoles since 2016, snapping a four-game losing streak in the series. In the same vein, the team was able to keep its bowl hopes alive with two games remaining in the regular season. FSU will need to win at Boston College and at Florida to go bowling.
