The spread for the game is Miami by 2.5 points.

Miami, which still has a shot at winning the ACC East to reach the conference championship game, has won three straight games overall, including two over Top 25 teams. The Hurricanes are led by quarterback Tyler Van Dyke, running back Jaylan Knighton and wide receiver Charleston Rambo. Van Dyke, a redshirt freshman with just six career starts, ranks 19th in the nation and fifth in the ACC with an average of 268.1 passing yards per game. Van Dyke, who has tossed 15 TD passes and only four interceptions, is the first Hurricanes QB since Bernie Kosar in 1984 to throw for at least 325 yards in three consecutive games.

Knighton, in five contests since coming off a team-issued, four-game suspension, has 628 scrimmage yards and seven touchdowns. He is averaging 125.6 scrimmage yards per game, and he had a career-high 162 rushing yards last week in Miami’s 33-30 win over Georgia Tech. Rambo ranks 15th in the nation and fourth in the ACC with 860 receiving yards. He had 210 receiving yards against Georgia Tech, falling just 10 yards short of Eddie Brown’s single-game program record.

Florida State, which has lost two straight games, is just 2-4 at home. Seminoles quarterback Jordan Travis missed last week’s 28-14 loss to North Carolina State due to a flu bug that hit much of the team.

McKenzie Milton, a former UCF star who has come back from a gruesome leg injury, started in place of Travis and completed 22 of 44 passes for 233 yards and one touchdown against the Wolfpack. However, he threw a key interception. Travis, who has won three of his past four starts, is the better player at the moment, especially as a runner. He has rushed for 340 yards in seven games, which ranks third on Florida State’s team, behind Jashaun Corbin (747 yards, 6.9 average) and Treshaun Ward (444 yards, 6.9 average).
