ESPN: Florida State and University of Florida football rise again

ESPN: Florida State and University of Florida football rise again | FSU Football | Scoop.it

Back in March, I did a three-city tour around Florida, stopping in Gainesville, Tallahassee and Miami with a very serious question: When will the state of Florida rise again?

 

At the time, Florida State finished 2011 as the top-ranked team among the Big Three, at No. 23. Will Muschamp was getting heat from Florida fans after a disappointing season. Miami was under the cloud of an NCAA investigation. (And still is.)

 

Perhaps only Muschamp and Jimbo Fisher anticipated the rise back up would happen in just a handful of months. Indeed, No. 4 Florida and No. 10 Florida State meet Saturday as Top 10 teams for the first time since 2000. That probably has surprised many college football observers, but not Fisher.

 

Simply put, this rivalry is better when national championship stakes are on the line. Thirteen times between 1990-2000, both were ranked in the Top 10. They played for the national championship in 1996, after the regular-season finale between the two featured No. 2 Florida State upsetting No. 1 Florida.

 

In fact, six times in those 13 meetings the lowe- ranked team won the game. Several times national championship hopes were dashed -- aside from the title game in the Sugar Bowl. In 1997, Florida upset No. 2 and unbeaten Florida State, in a stunning upset, thanks to the way Steve Spurrier rotated his two quarterbacks.

 

Those were the good ol’ days. Then we saw a streak of five times within seven seasons that only one team was ranked headed into the game, taking away much of the luster surrounding the matchup, especially from a national perspective.

 

But now here we are again, with national championship hopes on the line for the Gators. If they can win and Notre Dame loses, there could be another potential SEC vs. SEC national championship game. If Florida State wins, the Noles would have their first three-game winning streak in the series since 1998-2000.

 

Fisher has yet to lose to Florida or Miami, going 5-0 against the two in-state rivals. In fact, the Seminoles have gone 1,091 days since losing to a team from Florida...

Jameis Winston wins the Heisman Trophy

Jameis Winston, Florida State quarterback, beats out AJ McCarron, Jordan Lynch, Andre Williams, Johnny Manziel and Tre Mason for the Heisman and gives a speech.
Duncan Graham's insight:
Jameis Winston is by far the best rookie in college football and with the win of the Heisman Trophy, he joins an elite fraternity and becomes the youngest member ever to win the Heisman.
