Florida State QB James Blackman eyeing history against Miami

The pressure of earning his first victory may be gone for Florida State freshman quarterback James Blackman, but a new challenge has surfaced this week. Blackman will aim to become the sixth straight Florida State signal caller to beat Miami.

Miami hasn’t beaten Florida State since 2009. Coincidentally, Jimbo Fisher took over the Seminoles program in 2010, so he’s never lost to the Hurricanes.

Actually, Fisher’s dominance of Miami really isn’t a coincidence. Florida State hasn’t lost to anybody in Florida in its last 11 games and are 17-1 against instate opponents under Fisher. It will be largely up to Blackman to keep that streak going as well.

With a victory, Florida State would actually tie the all-time series against Miami with 31 wins apiece. The Seminoles have never led in the series and the last time it was tied was 1974.
