Hurricanes hope to keep momentum going against Syracuse Saturday

Hard Rock Stadium doesn't permit smoking in locker rooms.

Syracuse might hope to test that policy.

Victory cigars were part of the celebration at the Carrier Dome last week when Syracuse knocked off then-unbeaten and defending national champion Clemson. Another robust test awaits the Orange (4-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) on Saturday, when they head to steamy South Florida and resume a long-dormant rivalry with No. 8 Miami (5-0, 3-0).

Revenge on FSU's mind as Louisville comes to Tallahassee

If a disappointing start isn't a big enough chip on Florida State's shoulder, the Seminoles can draw some additional incentive from their opponent Saturday.

The Louisville Cardinals.

Yes, the Cardinals who dealt the Seminoles one of their worst losses in school history in a 63-20 rout last September. That was also the game that helped catapult Lamar Jackson - who scored five touchdowns in the blowout - to being named the Heisman Trophy winner.

Cornerback Levonta Taylor said the memories of that game remain vivid in his teammate's minds.
