Regular season

FSU beat its first five opponents by scores of 42-0, 45-7, 57-0, 33-7, and 51-0, through five games, Derrick Brooks, a Florida State linebacker, had outscored all the other teams by himself. The Seminoles' first real contest didnt come until October 9, when the third ranked Miami Hurricanes came to Tallahassee with a 31 game regular season win streak. That game was sealed when FSU safety Devin Bush picked off a Frank Costa pass and ran it back 40 yards for a Florida State touchdown, making the score 28-10 with 4:59 to play.

On November 13, 1993, Florida State played Notre Dame in a matchup of unbeatens. Florida State University was ranked Number 1, and Notre Dame was ranked Number 2. The winner of this game, at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, was certain to play Number 3 Nebraska (which would then move up to Number 2) in the 1994 Orange Bowl for the National Championship.[1]
