Florida State vs Miami Hurricanes: Need to know

Youth movement: It’s been a trying season for Miami, which entered the season at No. 13 in the AP Top 25. After getting waxed by Alabama and Michigan State, the Hurricanes lost tight matchups against Virginia and NC State. But since losing five key veteran starters to injuries — including King — the Hurricanes have embraced a youth movement. Over that stretch, Miami has won three straight games against NC State, No. 21 Pitt and Georgia Tech.

Pass rushing machine: While Florida State is still trying to find its identity on both sides of the ball, defensive end Jermaine Johnson has quietly developed into one of the nation’s best edge rushers. Johnson leads the ACC with 8 sacks and 17 QB hurries, per Pro Football Focus. For his efforts, Johnson earned a spot on the CBS Sports Midseason All-America team.

QB of the future: Miami freshman QB Tyler Van Dyke only entered the lineup because of injuries to the Hurricanes’ top two quarterbacks, but has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting young signal-callers in the country. Van Dyke has led the program to a 4-2 record, including three straight wins. Over the winning streak, Van Dyke has thrown for 1,140 yards, 10 touchdowns and 1 interception while completing 72.5% of his passes.
