The Florida State Seminoles continue to have problems off the field. But that hasn’t stopped them from rolling on the field.
The Seminoles needed two late touchdowns to defeat the Louisville Cardinals, 42-31, at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. The Seminoles have now won 23 straight games.
The Cardinals (6-3) were considered the best chance to beat Florida State (8-0) before the end of the season. The upset did not take place, and it is not expected to take place next Saturday in Virginia, either.
Heisman candidate James Winston hit tight end Freddie Stevenson for a 35-yard touchdown with 2:11 left to put Florida State up 42-31. Less than two minutes later, freshman running back Dalvin Cook scored on a 38-yard run to make it 35-31.
The Cardinals lone scoring opportunity in the fourth came when Michael Dyer scored on a 1-yard touchdown. Louisville went up 31-28 on the scoring play.
Shortly into the fourth, Winston hit freshman wide receiver Ermon Lane for a 47-yard touchdown. The Seminoles went up 28-24, their first lead in the game.
Cook also added a 40-yard touchdown in the third to get Florida State within 3 at 24-21 with 6:17 left in the third. Freshman wide receiver Travis Rudolph caught a 68-yard touchdown from Winston to get within 10 at 24-14.
Cardinals kicker John Wallace hit a 33-yard field goal at 11:22 to make it 24-7.
With 33 seconds left in the first, Seminoles tight end Nick O’Leary recovered a fumble for a touchdown to make it 21-7.
The Cardinals jumped out to a 14-0 lead with Dyer scoring on a 4-yard run then a 12-yard run within the first 10 minutes of the game. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Will Gardner hit redshirt senior Gerald Christian for an 11-yard touchdown to make it 21-0 at 2:09 left in the first.
