October 3, 1987
Florida State 20
Miami (FL) 3
It was pouring rain at Doak Campbell Stadium for this game. Torrential.
The Hurricanes jumped on top with an early field goal, but that was it for Miami (FL). The Florida State defense held down the Miami (FL) running game. Hurricane quarterback Steve Walsh had a horrendous 15 for 38 day in the rain.
All-American Deion Sanders returned an interception 54 yards in the First Quarter to set the tone for the Seminoles.
Florida State quarterbacks threw to 10 different players.
Sminole running back Sammie Smith ran for 132 yards to power the win.
(I wish it had turned out this way for real in 1987 - except for the rain.)

What This Is
A replay of the 1987 Florida State Football season. 1987 was the year I became a Seminole fan. My friend JP and I were at the FSU - Miami game this year. Much heartache, but JP and I were lifers after that.
