GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Get ready for the intensity of two Florida State-Miami showdowns this fall.
The first is a certainty -- Oct. 9 at Miami -- and the second is a very real possibility -- Dec. 4 at Charlotte for the ACC championship.
"Every year Florida State is a good game," Miami defensive tackle Allen Bailey said Sunday at the ACC Football Kickoff. "Always ends up as a thriller somehow. Every year we play them with a lot of intensity." Three reasons the ACC will get its first Florida State-Miami title game:
-- The quarterbacks. Jacory Harris (Miami) and Christian Ponder (Florida State) are experienced and capable of carrying their offenses.
-- The maturity. This is Miami coach Randy Shannon's fourth season -- he spent much of the first three instilling discipline in a squad that now has many veterans.
-- The continuity. After a couple seasons as coach-in-waiting at Florida State, Jimbo Fisher takes over in what he expects to be a seamless transition.
