A kickoff time for the annual rivalry contest between Florida State and Miami will be announced next week as the start time for the Oct. 8 game was 6-day optioned by the ACC on Monday. It will instead be announced on Sunday.

FSU has won six straight in the series, but this year’s contest could be a match-up of highly-ranked teams. The 3-1 Seminoles are currently No. 12 in the AP Poll while Miami is currently ranked 14th with a perfect 3-0 record.

Florida State will play host to North Carolina on Saturday while Miami visits Georgia Tech. Only twice in the previous nine meetings have both teams entered the contest ranked.

Miami hasn’t defeated Florida State in South Florida since the 2004 opener. 10 of the last 13 contests between the schools have been in prime time.
