You know there's been Wide Rights and and a Wide Left to decide Miami-Florida State games in the past, and now there's a blocked extra-point try to add yet another unforgettable chapter to this storied rivalry.
That's not even close to describing all the drama in this Hurricanes-Seminoles series.
Here's what was going to be a list of 10 late-and-great finishes in Miami-Florida State history ... it became a list of 15 instead, because this series is just that good and has gone to the wire so many times before.
Want an example of how close this series is? The rivals have played 61 times _ and the margin is now Miami 31, Florida State 30.

Florida State went for the win with 39 seconds left, but Rick Stockstill's try for a two-point conversion was knocked off line

Jeff Davis' 19-yard field goal as time expires wins it for Miami, which got a pair of big first-down throws from Bernie Kosar to Stanley Shakespeare on what became the gamewinning drive.
Miami 26, Florida State 25
Derek Schmidt missed two field goals and an extra point, Florida State had another field-goal try go bad when a botched snap led to a 51-yard loss, the Seminoles failed on a two-point conversion when Miami's Bubba McDowell batted down the pass with 42 seconds left _ and all that was barely enough to help the Hurricanes get another one-point win.

Florida State 10, Miami 7
Miami kicker Jon Peattie had a 28-yard field goal try that could have tied the game with 2:30 left, but a low snap bounced off Hurricanes holder Brian Monroe's hands and Peattie never got his foot on the ball. "We finally stole one from them like they've been stealing them from us," Bowden said.

FSU's Dalvin Cook gets the go-ahead touchdown at Miami with 3:05 left, doing so in his hometown. Miami's Michael Badgley misses a short field goal in the first half, Florida State blocks a point-after try in the first quarter _ and those four points proved to be the margin of defeat for the Hurricanes, who wasted a 13-0 early lead. "This game should be like this every year," a disappointed Miami coach Al Golden said afterward.
