CFB: (7) Miami at (3) Florida St.
Remember when this was one of the nation's top rivalries? Well, it's back. Florida State's torrid start to the year (example: The Noles led North Carolina State 35-0 after one quarter Saturday) has the Seminoles in the national title picture. The Hurricanes, meanwhile, still haven't lost, thanks to last week's scramble against Wake Forest. Who takes the game Saturday? Is this an ACC title game preview?
