‘Canes appeared defensively: ‘We are going to win FSU’

The Florida State Seminoles have a chance to defeat Miami for the first time since 2016 and keep their hopes alive at Doak Campbell on Saturday. It will be the first time manager Mike Norville has had a taste of the competition after he missed the game last season due to positive COVID-19 tests.

No matter the ratings or records, these two teams are always ready to go for it and deliver a final picture. Miami dominated the last two games of the series, but the game will be much closer this weekend.

It can help that Hurricanes save some bulletin board material. Speaking to the media for the first time this season on Tuesday, Miami defensive linebacker Avantai Williams made a bold announcement.

We don’t like FSU,” Williams said. “We’re going to beat FSU. That’s all we’re worried about.”

As if there wasn’t already enough animosity and passion in this rivalry, these comments should provide the Seminoles with a bit of a spark. The State of Florida understands the importance of this game. It helps that early returns are positive regarding Jordan Travis’ availability on Saturday. He was a full participant during this week’s first open practice.
