Several Washington Redskins tonight will have their eyes on the Florida State-Miami game set to take place in the Sunshine State, most notably Florida State alum Chris Thompson and Miami products Brandon Meriweather, Santana Moss and Leonard Hankerson.
Tonight’s game will mark the 59th time the two schools have squared off, as Miami took the first-ever meeting 35-13 on Oct. 5, 1951.
In recent seasons, though, Florida State has dominated, winning seven of the last nine meetings.
Thompson, representing Florida State, said his Seminoles will win rather easily.
From 2009-12, Thompson appeared in 38 games with eight starts at Florida State, rushing 277 times for 1,735 yards with 14 rushing touchdowns as well as compiling 45 receptions for 430 yards with one receiving touchdown.
During his last season at Florida State, Thompson carried the ball 91 times for 687 yards and five touchdowns in only eight games.
Meriweather had several great years at Miami, but probably none greater than his 2005 campaign when he became the first defensive back to ever lead the Hurricanes in tackles in a season (115).
Moss, meanwhile, still remains Miami’s all-time leader in receiving yards.
And while not in the above video, Hankerson also broke records at Miami, as he set school records in receptions (72), receiving yards (1,114) and touchdowns catches (13) during his senior season in 2010.
