Up 28-20 early in the fourth quarter against Clemson, Florida State lost a key defensive back when Trey Marshall was ejected due to targeting. Clemson receiver Mike Williams caught a pass and lowered his shoulder when Marshall’s helmet made contact with Williams’.

Just as with Matthew Thomas against Miami, Marshall will miss the first half of the team’s next game at NC State as the penalty occurred in the second half of play. Prior to leaving the game, the junior from Lake City was leading the team with 11 tackles and had a pass breakup.

Marshall was injured for a brief amount of time at the beginning of the game before returning a few plays later.

In his place is freshman Kyle Myers who had one tackle up to that point.

Up to that point, the Florida State defense had allowed 409 yards in total offense on 6.0 yards per play.
