These intrastate rivals have been battling for supremacy since 1958 when the Gators took down the Seminoles 21-7. The Gators hold a 34-32-2 all-time lead. However, things have been more competitive over the last 40 years as the series is tied 21-21-1 since 1974. The rivalry has been particularly fierce over the last 25 years as from 1990 to 2000 both schools were ranked in the top 10 during every meeting.

FSU vs University of Miami

These two schools first met in 1951 when the Hurricanes beat the Seminoles 35-13. Since then the series has been close with Miami holding a slight 31-28 all-time lead. However, the Seminoles have won the last five in a row. This rivalry has been particularly heated since the late 1980s as both teams have found themselves near the top of the rankings in recent years. Field Goals have been particularly pivotal in the rivalry having decided several of the most famous contests including Wide Right I, II, III, and IV as well as Wide Left.

FSU vs Clemson University

Rival Team: Clemson Tigers

Florida State and Clemson have played each other every year since the Seminoles entered the ACC in 1992. Florida State has gotten the better of Clemson over the course of the rivalry as they won the first meeting between the teams in 1970 38-13 and hold a 20-8 lead in the all-time series. Between the late 1990s and the early 2000s, this rivalry was known as the Bowden Bowl as Bobby Bowden coached the Seminoles while his son Tommy was the head coach of the Tigers.

FSU vs Virginia

Rival Team: Virginia Cavaliers

When the Seminoles and Cavaliers meet they play for the Jefferson-Eppes Trophy, which is named after Thomas Jefferson and his grandson Francis W. Eppes VII. The two schools played every year from 1992 to 2006. However, their meetings have become more sporadic due to the divisional alignment of the ACC. Florida State owns a 14-3 series leads and will look to extend that lead in 2019 when the teams meet again.
