On Saturday morning, ESPN's College GameDay kicked off from Miami Garden ahead of a contest between the Florida State Seminoles and Miami Hurricanes.

Miami leads the all-time series 34-30 and has won the last three matchups. Prior to that steak from the Hurricanes, Florida State went on an incredible run of seven-straight victories.

Miami enters tonight's game as the favorite over a rebuilding Florida State program. Before kickoff, one Miami-based reporter made a statement that stunned the nation.

AP Sports writer Tim Reynolds suggested Miami-FSU is the best rivalry in college football. He noted other great rivalries, but maintained the Hurricanes and Seminoles is the best.

"Army-Navy is great. So is Notre Dame-USC," he said on Twitter. "Oklahoma-Texas and Florida-Georgia are cool. Auburn-Alabama and Ole Miss-Miss St are special. Ohio State-Michigan is phenomenal. But there's nothing like Miami vs. FSU. The. Best. Rivalry. In. College. Football. Resumes. Today."

Objectively, FSU vs. Miami isn't even close to the top echelon of college football rivalry games right now.

Army vs. Navy might be the most respected rivalry game in all of college football - generally played as the last game of the year. Meanwhile, Ohio State vs. Michigan and Alabama vs. Auburn generally fight for the crown of being the best rivalry in the game.

All three rivalry matchups are better than anything Miami and Florida State have produced recently.
