PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – It's a split decision for the panel as to who will win this weekend's rivalry game between the Miami Hurricanes and Florida State Seminoles.

Local 10 sports director Will Manso and Local 10 sports reporter Clay Ferraro are both picking the Seminoles, while Local 10 sports reporter Andrea Brody and Local 10 meteorologist Julie Durda are picking the Hurricanes.

No. 12 Florida State has won five straight against the Hurricanes, whose last win came in Tallahassee in 2009.

Brody has been betting on Florida each weekend, and the results paid off after the Gators soundly defeated previously undefeated Mississippi last Saturday. Brody's 10-2 record last week pulled her into a tie with Manso and Ferraro. The others are now banking on the 11th-ranked Gators to defeat Missouri, which has beaten Florida each of the past two seasons.

Manso and Ferraro are picking UCF to win its first game of the season at home against Connecticut. The Huskies upset UCF last season, handing the Knights their lone loss in American Athletic Conference play.

Ferraro also has faith in USF, which has lost three in a row after winning its season opener against Florida A&M. The Bulls host a surprisingly good Syracuse team. The Orange are 3-1, with their only loss to undefeated LSU.

Durda is going rogue again by picking California to knock off Utah in a pivotal Pacific 12 Conference tilt. The Golden State native is just an upset or two away from catching up to the rest.
