The Hurricanes offense was not able to get going in the first half.

FSU special teams have been both great and bad.

The Canes received the opening kickoff and gained more yards on this drive than they did the entire first half. It was a one play - 21 yard drive for the Canes. That was critical, because it left Miami a timeout and the chance to take a shot or two at the end zone.

Miami tied the game at 3-3 early in the third quarter on a 31-yard field goal by senior Michael Badgley.

Berrios caught Miami's first touchdown in the third quarter to put the Canes up 10-3.

Miami took the 10-3 lead into the fourth quarter, and both teams traded touchdowns before Florida State appeared to score the knockout punch late.

LSU bounces back with win at Florida, 17-16
A missed extra point after a Florida touchdown in the third quarter let LSU (4-2, 1-1 SEC) keep a lead that once stood at 17-3. However, a bad snap led to the normally reliable Eddy Pineiro missing the extra point, keeping the score at 17-16.

FSU was stuck deep in their half of the field after Keith Gavin chose to return the kickoff out of the end zone and made it to the 12 yard line. Miami's deciding drive was also 9 plays, 75 yards and took only 1:18 to execute.

Rosier played a strong second half, finishing the game with 254 yards passing with three touchdowns and an interception. Freshman running back Cam Akers had 20 carries for 121 yards for the Seminoles while Miami running back Mark Walton had just 25 yards on 12 carries. Wharton High alumnus Auden Tate's first catch was a pivotal third-down conversion which helped set up Aguayo's 38-yard field goal with 6:55 left.

The winning touchdown, on a 23-yard pass from quarterback Malik Rosier to backup wide receiver Darrell Langham with six seconds left, was reviewed to see if Langham's knee touched at the 1-yard line as he was being brought down by FSU cornerback Tarvarus McFadden.

TALLAHASSEE | Florida State's defense, almost impregnable for three quarters against the 13th-ranked Miami Hurricanes, wilted in the final seven minutes as UM staged two 75-yard drives to rally over the Seminoles 24-20 on Saturday and end FSU's seven-game winning streak in the rivalry in front of 78,169 at Doak Campbell Stadium.

But FSU answered early in the fourth quarter when Blackman connected with tight end Ryan Izzo for a 15-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 10-10.
