The Florida State Seminoles (9-0), who rank No. 2 in the most recent AP Poll, will look to continue their winning ways when they travel south to Sun Life Stadium to face the Miami Hurricanes (6-3). With a win, Florida State will move one step closer to the College Football Playoff, for which the Seminoles now sit third in the rankings. Florida State is coming off a modest 34-20 home victory over the Virginia Cavaliers. Quarterback Jameis Winston completed 22-of-35 passes for 261 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Wide receiver Rashad Greene accounted for 13 catches, 136 yards, and one touchdown in the win. Running back Karlos Williams chipped in two touchdowns to secure the win. Florida State’s defense limited Virginia’s offense to just 37 rushing yards on 32 carries. Florida State’s trip to Miami will arguably be their toughest road game of the season. Fans can expect to pay above average ticket prices when Florida State and Miami renew their rivalry.
According to TiqIQ, the average price for Miami vs Florida State football tickets is currently $239.80 on the secondary market while the get-in price for the game is $90. Tickets for this game are more expensive than any home game for the Miami Dolphins, but still 22% below the average price for this meeting last season at Doak Campbell Stadium.
Two weeks ago, Miami routed North Carolina, 47-20. Miami ran for 295 yards and three touchdowns. Running back Duke Johnson rushed for 177 yards and two yards. Tight End Clive Walford caught six passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns. Miami has had two weeks to prepare for this pivotal ACC showdown.
On top of still relatively high secondary market ticket prices, Miami will look to avenge last year’s 41-14 defeat. Florida State out-rushed Miami, 192 to 89. Winston threw for 325 yards in the victory. Johnson rushed for 97 yards on 23 carries. Greene caught six passes for 83 yards. Expect a spirited effort from both sides as college football playoff aspirations are on the line.
