This game has already been mentioned several times throughout this countdown, due to the fact that it was that memorable. 1992, the Hurricanes, ranked second in the country, play host to the third-ranked Florida State Seminoles.

Miami led 17-16 in the fourth quarter, and the deafening sold-out crowd at the Orange Bowl was going absolutely bananas. It got even louder when Pat Riley sacked Charlie Ward. And then on the very next play, Ward threw a screen to Tamarick Vanover.

Vanover was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Though, all-time linebacker Micheal Barrow was not, and absolutely leveled Vanover. In my opinion, this is the greatest hit in the history of Canes football. Miami won, 19-16.

GO CANES!
