TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The seventh-ranked Miami Hurricanes hope their ground game will help their defense contain No. 3 Florida State's explosive offense and quarterback Jameis Winston and

Running back Duke Johnson is the focal point of the Miami offense and the No. 11 rusher in FBS, racking up 117.6 yards per game. Florida State's No. 3 scoring offense is much less dangerous watching from the sideline.

The Seminoles (7-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) expect a physical game and know they must win the line of scrimmage to keep their national championship desires alive. Cornerback Lamarcus Joyner challenged Florida State's front-seven, saying, "Whoever has the best front-seven wins football games."

Florida State will have to neutralize a deep Miami (7-0, 5-0) offensive line that has gashed open lanes for Johnson and backup Dallas Crawford.
