No. 2 Florida State led No. 1 Miami 19-3 after two quarters, but this rivalry is rarely decided at halftime. Canes quarterback Steve Walsh completed the comeback when he audibilized a 73-yard touchdown to Michael Irvin and gave Miami a 26-19 lead. But the Canes didn't put the game away until after the Seminoles scored in the final minute. Miami defensive back Bubba McDowell knocked down Danny McManus' two-point attempt for a 26-25 victory.
