The first half was brutal for FSU, gaining one yard rushing and 43 yards passing. The second half would prove to be much better thanks to two drives in the second half that netted the Seminoles 10 points and gave them the victory.
7th possession from FSU 20.
1-10 F20 -- Dive play to Smith gains three yards (Surratt had a great lead block)
2-7 F23 -- Shotgun inside draw to Smith goes for no gain (Claude badly missed his block)
3-7 F23 -- Shotgun square in to Fagg for 14 yards (Weatherford had great time, but almost moved into a sack by coming too close to Boatman. He recovered and made a great throw)
1-10 F37 -- Weatherford bobbled the shotgun snap and loss two yards. Good snap, QB error.
2-12 F35 -- Dump pass to Smith gains seven yards (Great protection again gave Weatherford time to go through his progressions and catch Smith working his way back).
3-5 F42 -- FSU flagged for false start (-5)
3-10 F37 -- Weatherford escapes a sack to gain four yards (Boatman was PWNED by Atkins on that play).
4 rushers, 5 yards
2 passes, 21 yards
1 penalty, -5 yards
8th possession from FSU 41
1-10 F41 -- Booker gains two yards on an inside draw (Weatherford audibled out of the original play. Booker actually hit the hole with some authority)
2-8 F43 -- Toss pitch to Booker loses five yards (Everyone stunk on this play and Booker had his dancing shoes on right away)
3-13 F38 -- Shotgun post pattern to Davis was incomplete (Pass was tipped and it's a good thing because it would've been Meriweather's second interception as he read Weatherford perfectly)

1-10 M40 -- Jump ball to Carr was overthrown (Glenn Sharpe almost intercepted it and Carr was playing defense on the play)
2-10 M40 -- Rollout pass to Warren in incomplete (Boatman held his block to give Weatherford additional time but it was a bad throw)
3-10 M40 -- Dump pass to Booker gains 35 yards (Booker found a seam and just ran until he got tackled, it was the longest play from scrimmage for either team)
1-G M5 -- Shotgun drag route to Davis gains four yards (Blocking was solid)

Final Thoughts: The team did some good things in the second half, especially in the passing game. It's time to do something different with Lorenzo Booker. He's got to be put in the slot on occasion or out wide, force defenses to account for him. He's just not the type of running back that's going to help a team that can't run the ball effectively to begin with.
