Miami breaks drought against FSU

Once focus of nation, FSU-Miami is chance for calm in storm

The Seminoles did have their best rushing game of the year, but it was not enough to keep the Hurricanes from earning a last-second 24-20 victory, breaking a 7-game losing streak against Florida State.

The Wolverines had the ball with a chance to drive for a go-ahead TD, but a heave from the Spartans 37 as time expired hit the turf near the goal line. Rosier fired a pass right to Langham, a redshirt junior from Lake Worth, who lunged toward the end zone. Berrios scores his second touchdown of the game on a 6-yard catch.

Langham caught the exclamation point, but much of the heavy lifting was done by senior receiver Braxton Berrios. A long review in the ACC replay booth - one that didn't seem to offer conclusive proof - upheld Darrell Langham's 23-yard touchdown. But two of his three completions came on third down. He's emerged this season as Rosier's favorite target. Miami punts with 13:21 left in second quarter. Berrios tore his ACL in a high school All-American game shortly before he enrolled at Miami in January 2014, and UM doctors discovered the tear when he had his first team physical.

Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher comes off the sidelines in the third quarter of the game between the Florida State Seminoles and the Miami Hurricanes. The 'Canes drove 75 yards and ended it with a gutsy call.

The Seminoles would answer on the ensuing drive, when freshman quarterback James Blackman found junior receiver Auden Tate for a 20-yard score that put Florida State back in the lead, 20-17, with 1:24 remaining in the game.

That changed on Saturday, as Miami picked up a victory in its first real challenge of the season. Both drives chewed up the 150 yards UM needed for the touchdowns in 15 plays, using a total of only 3:04 of clock time. No reason to hang your head after that football game. Starter Mark Walton managed just 25 yards on twelve carries, appearing still physically by an ankle injury sustained against Toledo. It seems like Homer found some running room with 9.2 yards a carry due to FSU in prevent defense. Behind an electric day from freshman Cam Akers (20 rushes for 121 yards), Florida State ran for 203 yards.

Auburn's Jarrett Stidham completed 14 of 21 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns.

The Seminoles' defense was stifling early on.

Nnadi said one of the problems in the fourth quarter were missed assignments and missed keys.

The Hurricanes matched their season average with nine tackles for a loss. With Doak Campbell Stadium rocking, it seemed like the same old story with the No. 13 Miami Hurricanes (3-0), losing another lead in the second half.

Still, Kelly, Dickerson and Minshew each got the starts at their respective spots on the line, returning the unit to full health against UM.

The undefeated Hurricanes stayed unbeaten when they scored a game-winning touchdown in the final seconds of their contest at Florida State. Miami has the overall edge in the all-time series at 32-30.

Winning with class is important, and Richt clearly feels like the Hurricanes should act like the storied program that they are, even after a huge win over a heated rival. It bounced back to win five in a row to the end the season, setting the stage for a 2017 season in which it hoped to make its first ACC title game appearance.
