Florida State football, recruiting news: Opponent Recap - Week 3

Updates on Florida State football opponents are ordered as they appear(ed) on FSU's schedule.

- Texas State lost in a shoot out to Southern Mississippi and an inadvertent whistle may have been the difference. (It wasn't. It was the lack of defense but whistles are so much more fun to talk about.) The Bobcats defense is as bad as we thought (scoring 50 and losing), but it does have a good offense.

- USF continues to be a mess and lost to Maryland 35-17. The Bulls need to do something this year to show improvement as Taggart is on the hot seat.

- Boston College lost to FSU 14-0 - injuries suck.

- WAKE FOREST (Week 5, 10/3) WON A ROAD GAME!!!! ACC! ACC! Unfortunately starting QB John Wolford left the game with an injury but Kendall Hinton performed admirably in his stead. No word on Wolford's status yet.

- Miami (Week 6, 10/10) survived a late game scare and beat Nebraska 36-33 in OT after being up 33-10 with just over 8 minutes to play. Miami threw 10 passes in the fourth quarter with a huge lead, failing to run clock.

- The ACC front office reasserted it's stupidity by having 2 of the ACC's better teams play on Thursday on short rest. As you can imagine Louisville (Week 7, 10/17) and Clemson (Week 10, 11/7) played a pretty ugly game but the Tigers edged the Cardinals 20-17.

- Georgia Tech (Week 8, 10/24) planned to make a statement in South Bend but ended up getting too far behind early and lost 30-22.

- Syracuse (Week 9, 10/31) is 3-0 after beating Central Michigan 30-27 in OT. Unfortunately Syracuse lost it's second QB of the year to a concussion which begs the question: Why did Syracuse schedule LSU?

- NC State (Week 11, 11/14) beat Old Dominion 38-14 in Sr RB Shadrach Thornton's return from suspension.

- Chattanooga (Week 12, 11/21) got a great game from it's defense and beat Samford 31-21. Head coach Russ Huesman called out America:

"Everybody thought we were dead," he said. "The United States of America thought Chattanooga football was dead. Well, you're wrong, America! You're wrong!"

- Florida (Week 13, 11/28) survives a late drive by Kentucky to secure it's 29th win in a row by a final score of 14-9. Treon Harris did not play as Will Grier went the distance for UF.

Opponent W/L record: 25-11
