Miami completely owned the rivalry series against FSU in the early 2000’s, taking six straight games from the Seminoles during that time.

The sixth straight win came in the season opener in 2004, when the two teams met in the Orange Bowl, Miami ranked #5 and the Noles #6.

It was a defensive struggle the entire night, and the game eventually went into overtime with both teams tied at 10.

On the first possession of OT, FSU quarterback Chris Rix attempted to make something happen.

Hurricanes defensive end Thomas Carroll recovered the bobbled snap from Rix, giving Miami the ball. Two plays later, Frank Gore gave the Canes the 16-10 win.
