St. Petersburg, Florida -- This weekend will be special. It's the first time both Florida State and Miami are ranked in the Top-10 in the BCS standings when the rivals square off since 2004.

The Seminoles are undefeated. FSU is playing outstanding football. They blew out NC State last weekend 49-17.

However, that win wasn't as impressive in voters' eyes as Oregon's 42-14 trouncing of UCLA. The Ducks jumped the 'Noles and that's a big deal.

Only the top two teams at the end of the year get a crack at the national title game. There is a chance Florida State could leap frog back up to No. 2 this weekend if they can beat the Hurricanes in Tallahassee.

It won't be easy. Miami is No.7 in this week's BCS poll after hanging on to beat Wake Forest last weekend.

Both teams are excited for this Sunshine State showdown.
