1987 Regular Season
Miami vs Florida State
26 - 25
3 October, 1987
Another classic in the Miami-Florida State rivalry with both teams ranked in the top 5 and naitonal championship aspirations. Miami was down 3-19 in the 3rd quarter but mounted a comeback to tie it up 19-19. However, with just over 2 minutes left and needing a 1st down conversion in their own territory an audibled play call at the line resulted in not just a first, but Michael Irvin streaking up the sidelines for a 73 yard TD. Miami would stay unbeaten throughout the season, winning their second national championship.
2000 Regular Season
Shockey's TD sets up Wide Right III
Miami vs Florida State
27 - 24
7 October, 2000
Down by 4 points against #1 Florida State, the Hurricanes put together a strong drive as they marched down the field. With only 46 seconds left to play, Dorsey found Shockey over the middle to put Miami up by 3. As history would have it, FSU would get a chance to send the game into OT, only to have their kicker miss wide right. It was the first time Miami beat FSU since 1994 and beating a #1 team let the world know, The U was back.
2001 Regular Season
Miami vs Boston Col
18 - 7
10 November, 2001
The 2001 Miami team is argued by some to be the best college football team of all time. However, against unranked Boston College, Miamifound themselves in serious trouble with 30 seconds left as Boston College had a 1st and Goal on Miami's 9 yard line. A bad loss to an unranked team here would have surely derailed Miami's championship hopes. Instead, a great defensive play resulted in an interception and what followed will be remember by man as Ed Reed stripped the ball from his own teammate and decided to return it all the way for a touchdown, essentially ending the game there. Many of the Miami players would cite this game as a crucial part of their season as a true "wake up call" and they would go on to roll past future opponents, including a demolition of #2 Nebraska in the Rose Bowl where the led 34-0 at halftime and would win their 5th championship.
1984 Orange Bowl
Miami vs Nebraska
31 - 30
2 January, 1984
