Event: Michigan vs Florida State (Orange Bowl)
date: Friday, December 30
Place: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, Florida
The game line suggested oddsmakers have faith that Michigan starting quarterback and junior Wilton Speight will play over senior John O’Korn. Speight suffered a shoulder injury against Iowa and O’Korn filled in for the 20-10 victory over Indiana. But as recently as late last month, both passers were taking reps in practice before the loss to Ohio State and leading receiver Amara Darboh said he was taking reps with both players while running back De’Veon Smith wouldn’t comment, the Detroit Free-Press reported.
Speight was expected to play, but it’s the WolveSports Illustrated told its readers to “accept, too, that they might well be the next national champion.”The New York Times described the pace of play as “a dizzying offensive pace to establish figures among the most embarrassing.”
The two esteemed publications weren’t talking about the No. 3 Michigan football team, either. They were talking about the Wolverines’ opponent that day: the Florida State Seminoles.Florida State came to Ann Arbor with plenty of swagger on Sept. 28, 1991. The Seminoles were the No. 1 team in the country, and left with a 51-31 win … and a chunk of Michigan vs Florida State Live Stadium’s grass. That season, the Seminoles collected pieces of grass and artificial turf from each of the stadiums where they won games.I could think of five schools in the nation where I’d say if I could get some turf there, I could never top this,” Florida State coach Bobby Bowden said after the win in 1991. “Michigan is one of those. Florida State and Michigan will meet for the first time since that September day, when the No. 11 Seminoles (9-3) face the No. 6 Wolverines (10-2) in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 30 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.
It could be a pass-heavy game like the 1991 matchup, when Michigan quarterback Elvis Grbac and Florida State quarterback Casey Weldon combined for 538 yards passing. Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight averages 215.9 yards a game passing, while Florida State freshman quarterback Deondre Francois has thrown for 3,128 yards (260.7 per game). Francois has thrown for at least 300 yards five times Homepage this season, including a 419-yard game in Florida State’s 45-34 win against Ole Miss in its season opener on Sept. 5.But could it be a high-scoring game, much like the regular-season battle 25 years ago?In 1991, Michigan gave up 51 points to the Seminoles — at the time, it was the third-highest point total surrendered by Michigan to an opponent.I can’t believe they could run around the end on us like that,” Michigan coach Gary Moeller said after the loss to the Seminoles. “There are things we have to get to work on.”
The national championship projections, however, were premature. Florida State finished No. 4 in both the Associated Press Top 25 poll and the coaches poll. Miami, with the help of a 17-16 win over the Seminoles that November, earned the top spot in the AP Top 25 and split the national championship that year with Washington, which finished No. 1 in the coaches poll.Michigan, meanwhile, went 10-2 and finished at No. 6 in Michigan vs Florida State Live Stream both national polls.

rine’s defense, led by Heisman Trophy candidate and do-it-all linebacker Jabrill Peppers, that could cap Michigan’s season Michigan vs Florida State with a win. The junior played 15 different positions this season while collecting 72 tackles, including 16 for a loss, 4.0 sacks and an interception.Peppers’ dominance helped the Wolverines rank second in the nation in both points allowed and team sacks, second only to Alabama and Florida State, respectively. He’s joined by senior defensive ends Taco Charlton (8.5 sacks) and Chris Wormley (6.0) and junior pass rusher Chase Winovich (5.0).The Seminoles and head coach Jimbo Fisher, who agreed to a contract extension through 2024, also faced a fall from grace after earning a No. 7 ranking in the preseason poll. Florida State began the season with a huge win over then-No. 11 Ole Miss, but stumbled against No. 10 Louisville, and fell to eventual ACC champion Clemson by three points in October.
The Seminoles, seeking their first bowl victory since capturing the national championship in the 2013 season, will roll out the country’s No. 31 scoring powered by freshman quarterback Deondre Francois and junior running back Dalvin Cook.

Defensive end Jacob Pugh (concussion), and defensive backs Marcus Lewis (hip) and A.J. Westbrook (concussion), to name just a few, are all hurt and their status for the Orange Bowl is unknown.
