SOTU Roundtable: Miami Hurricanes vs Florida State Seminoles 2021, part 2. What do we think about the players in this game? is there a path to an FSU upset? And more. #BeatFSU https://t.co/hEbKSKwVZL pic.twitter.com/gWlvKFlsnP— StateOfTheU.com (@TheStateOfTheU) November 11, 2021
And now, here are our predictions:
Prediction time. How do you see the game playing out?
Cam Underwood: I think this game is going to be close for a half, with adrenaline and testosterone buoying the Noles. But, in the end, I think that Miami’s offense and red-hot QB Tyler Van Dyke, and a couple timely defensive plays, are too much for FSU to overcome.
Final Score: Miami 34 FSU 20

Jake Marcus: 31-13 Miami. Not quite the 52-10 dismantling from last year but Tyler Van Dyke is just getting started and appears to welcome the pressure. He’ll thrive at the Doak.
Craig T. Smith: 33-22 Miami. I saw a tweet that said Tyler Van Dyke bombs away, and the FSU pass defense is Baghdad. I have a feeling that will be prophetic. Rambo has another massive day, and Miami’s run defense tightens up in the second half after a slow start.
John Michaels: 41-31 Miami. I have a hard time believing either defense will have much success stopping the other team. Tyler Van Dyke, Charleston Rambo and Jaylan Knighton have taken Miami’s offense to a different level and Florida State can not keep. 5 in a row over little brothers.
Carl Bleich: 38-27 Miami. The Hurricanes roll on offense behind another amazing effort from Van Dyke but struggle on defense until some late second half stops make this a double digit win.
