There are certain moments in your life that you’ll always remember for the rest of your life. You know who you were with, where you were, what you were eating. For me, that moment was October 7th, 2017, when the Canes were in Tallahassee taking on the Florida State Seminoles.

For seven straight seasons, from 2010 to 2016, FSU had defeated Miami, and each loss was harder than the last. So when the Hurricanes played the Noles in 2017, we had reason to believe that the streak could end this year, especially with FSU having early season problems.

Though, those hopes seemed to nearly die when the Seminoles took a 20-17 lead with just over a minute to go. Still, somehow, someway, Malik Rosier led one of the great drives in school history, and found themselves deep in FSU territory with 11 seconds to play.

On a dime of a throw, Rosier found receiver Darrell Langham for the touchdown, cementing both players into Miami lore forever. Game over. Canes 24 Noles 20. The streak was over. What a night.
