Orlando Sentinel: Division-leading Florida State earns 48-7 rout of Duke; With NC State loss Saturday, FSU claims sole possession of Atlantic Division lead

"As television cameras turned away from Doak Campbell Stadium for a commercial break late in the first half of Saturday’s game, the low buzz of the murmuring hometown crowd began to grow...Gradually, a few scattered cheers crescendoed into a roar that rang throughout every corner of the stadium...'In Chapel Hill,' the public address announcer said to the more than 71,000 seated on the warm metal bleachers. 'North Carolina has beaten North Carolina State, 43-35.'" (by Coley Harvey)

Tallahassee Democrat: FSU manhandles Duke; Seminoles enter bye week on high note

"It was early. It was often. And then it was over...The Florida State Seminoles used a big-play passing attack and its typical swarming defense to jump all over the Duke Blue Devils on Saturday afternoon, cruising to a 48-7 Homecoming win in front of 71,467 at Doak Campbell Stadium." (by Corey Clark)

The wires:

"Duke coach David Cutcliffe has been saying all along that he believes Florida State is the best team in the country...He didn't change his mind Saturday after watching the Seminoles (No. 12 BCS, No. 11 AP) mangle his Blue Devils 48-7 to regain control of their fortunes in the Atlantic Coast Conference."

"EJ Manuel tossed two touchdown passes and Devonta Freeman ran for two more scores to lead No. 11 Florida State to a 48-7 victory over Duke on Saturday. Florida State's win coupled with North Carolina State's loss to North Carolina puts the Seminoles back in control of the Atlantic Coast Conference's Atlantic Division while Duke (6-3, 3-2) dropped out of the undisputed lead in the league's muddled Coastal Division."
