It was October 3rd in 1987, and the #3 Miami Hurricanes were in Tallahassee, taking on the #3 Florida State Seminoles. Both rosters were filled with future NFL talent, most notably Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders.
In front of a then record crowd of more than 63,000 the Noles took a 19-3 lead into the third quarter. Though, the Canes fought back, tying the game at 19 with three minutes to go.
