Originally, Miami-FSU was scheduled to be a primetime, 8pm kickoff on September 16th. But with the game being moved to October 7th, that game time wasn’t set in stone. And, on Monday, a new kickoff time was announced
Here’s part of the official announcement on the gametime:
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The University of Miami's football game at Florida State on Oct. 7 will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on either ABC or ESPN, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced Monday.
The matchup at Doak Campbell Stadium was originally set for Sept. 16, but was rescheduled due to Hurricane Irma.
With FSU now 0-2 on the season, and other games being more appealing for the 8pm timeslot, Miami-FSU now gets bumped up to 3:30pm on October 7th. The game will be televised nationally on either ABC or ESPN.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: regardless of record, expect to get the absolute best from Florida State in this game. That applies to Miami as well, but thinking that this will be a cakewalk just because FSU is 0-2 and unranked for the first time since 2011 is foolish.
We’ll have PLENTY of commentary and analysis leading up to the Miami-FSU game...next week.
