Florida State took the opening kickoff and went the length of the field on Miami's defense before Devonta Freeman opened the scoring from five yards out.
It was the beginning of a great night, offensively, for the FSU offense. Freeman finished the game with 78 yards and two scores.
After the Hurricanes intercepted FSU quarterback Jameis Winston, the offense got on board. Stephen Morris found Allen Hurns right in stride for a 33-yard touchdown strike. Morris finished the game with 92 yards and two scores.
After two more second half touchdowns, Florida State opened a 14-point lead a few minutes left before halftime. The Canes cut it to down to seven with just seconds left when Morris found Hurns again, this time from 14 yards out. Hurns finished the game with five catches for 84 yards and those two scores.
Miami's chances of pulling the upset seemed over once the second half started, as the Seminoles dominated in the third and fourth quarters. They outscored the Hurricanes 20-0 in the second half.
Duke Johnson finished the game with 97 yards on 23 carries but suffered what appeared to be a major ankle injury late in the game. He was replaced by Dallas Crawford.
The loss sends Miami to 7-1 on the season. They'll have a chance to get back on the winning side in a very important Coastal Division game against Virginia Tech next Saturday.
