Miami Football Players Celebrate At FSU's Midfield, Mark Richt Isn't Happy

Even with Miami surging to a 3-0 start and the No. 13 ranking in the Associated Press poll, 'Canes vs. 'Noles won't be the must-see TV it once was for many viewers outside of Sunshine State. It seems like Homer found some running room with 9.2 yards a carry due to FSU in prevent defense. But their attack began clicking after the break.

The fourth-quarter fold by the defensive ruined what had been a strong effort, especially in the first half.

Rosier hit Braxton Berrios for a 17-yard gain on a third-and-down.

The Canes bounced back one snap later, as Rosier connected with Ahmmon Richards for a 32-yard gain to the FSU 25 to extended the drive and the redshirt junior quarterback followed with an eight-yard run to get the Hurricanes in the red zone for the first time at the Florida State 17.

Florida State's defense was stout all game against the run - allowing only 83 yards on the ground - but it wasn't enough. Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Notre Dame all come to Miami, and those are games we can take seriously now.

The FSU offense finished the half with 163 total yards on 38 plays for 4.2 ypp as they were able to get the running game going with Jacques Patrick and Cam Akers. The duo connected on an 15-yard strike on third-and-10 to extend Miami's drive and move the Hurricanes to the Seminoles' 32-yard line.

He caught Miami's first touchdown of the game, a 21-yard grab in the third quarter, which came after a 44-yard punt return.

Hurricanes redshirt junior Trayone Gray, coming off a torn ACL after sitting out last season, has four carries for 34 yards.

Then Florida State took the lead on the Blackman-to-Tate score.

LOS ANGELES - Sam Darnold threw for 316 yards and 3 touchdowns, Ronald Jones II rushed for 1 touchdown and No. 14 Southern California (5-1, 3-1) defeated Oregon State (1-5, 0-3) on Saturday.

Rosier completed 7 of 10 passes for 118 yards. Nine plays, 75 yards and just three completions. "Thankfully, we put together, really, two game-winning drives in the fourth quarter".

The Miami defense was led by safety Jaquan Johnson with 12 tackles, while fellow defensive backs Dee Delaney and Michael Jackson each recorded interceptions in the win. Florida State has faced a far more rigorous slate, but the team is struggling with freshman quarterback James Blackman at the helm after Deondre Francois went down in the opener, resulting in the team's inability to put points on the board as they are averaging just 18 points per game, far less than the 35.1 they averaged a year ago.

Some Hurricanes' players were celebrating on the logo after the win.


Despite a rough loss to Miami on Saturday afternoon, Florida State football received good news on the recruiting front on Sunday.

The Spartans (4-1, 2-0 Big Ten) have beaten MI eight times in a 10-year stretch for the first time in a series that dates to 1898.

The Hurricanes looked like a tropical storm in the first half.
