Florida State QB Deondre Francois explains the final moments of loss vs. North Carolina

The redshirt freshman QB Deondre Francois talked about the game’s final moments.

Florida State QB Deondre Francois threw for 372 yards in the loss vs. UNC and talked about the final moments, including his game-tying touchdown run with less than 30 seconds left.

“That was a typical stretch right play, we’d been running it all game, so I feel like they knew it was coming, and before I got the ball in my hands, the whole defense flowed with the (offensive) line and I just tried to cut back and make a play. I saw the guy in my peripheral and luckily I broke the tackle and made it in the end zone.”

At one point in the game, the ‘Noles went down by 21-points and overcame a deficit that large for the second time in the young season. “We’ve been in the situation before, just had to limit the mistakes, the penalties and self-inflicted wounds and we knew we were able to come back.”
