Fans can watch the Florida State vs. Miami football game live online and see which team wins in the battle of the Sunshine State.

The teams continue their rivalry with a game Saturday at 8 p.m. The game will have a national audience, with ABC handling the broadcast, but those who want to watch live online are in luck as well, with ESPN providing streaming video of all the action (link below).

Fans who watch the FSU vs. Miami game live online will see a Miami team out for revenge. The Hurricanes blew a late lead in last year’s matchup, losing to the unbeaten Seminoles 30-26. Miami had leads of 16-0 and 23-7 in the game before being outscored 23-3 over the last two and a half quarters.

Despite the bitter loss, even Miami’s head coach acknowledged that the game was a classic.

“That’s what this game should be like,” Miami coach Al Golden said after last year’s loss (via ESPN). “This game should be like this every year.”

The players already seem to be geared up for another great game. Miami running back Mark Walton, a true freshman, seems to understand the depth of the rivalry between the two teams.

“I know how this rivalry goes. … Once we see that horse go down and mascot [Chief Osceola] puts that spear in the ground, I feel it’s disrespectful,” he said, (via the Miami Herald).

Fans who watch the Miami vs. Florida State football game live online will see a chance for the Hurricanes to gain an edge in league play. This will be their first Atlantic Coast Conference game this season, and a chance to put the Seminoles at 2-1 in the conference.

But it will take a reversal of fortunes, as Florida State has won eight of the last 10 games in the series — following a stretch in which the Hurricanes won six straight.

“It’s one of the great rivalries in college football and it’s a pleasure and honor to be part of it,” said FSU coach Jimbo Fisher. “They’ve got a great program, we’ve got a great program.”

“We have a lot of respect for them. They have a lot of respect for us. Two teams that are going to play their tails off.”

The game could be a late birthday gift for Fisher, who turned 50 on Friday.

This year’s matchup will look quite a bit different than last season’s game. Florida State’s quarterback Jameis Winston is off to the NFL and has assumed an identity as a very talented and playmaking defensive team. The Seminoles are allowing just 11.5 points per game, good for No. 6 in the NCAA, and are giving up just 141 yards per game through the air.

That could mean difficulty for the Hurricanes, who behind sophomore quarterback Brad Kaaya are near the bottom of the NCAA in third down conversion rates.

It isn’t getting Kaaya down, however.

“Players have to show up on game day,” Kaaya said. “That’s the biggest thing. We’ve got to make the plays when they come to us. You can make all the plays you want in practice out here on Greentree [Field], but they’ve got to show up, you know?”

And Kaaya has still been quite effective through the air, with touchdown passes now in 16 consecutive games.
