After putting up 56 points in the first half against FCS opponent Delaware State, Florida State and DSU mutually agreed to cut the third and fourth quarters to 10 minutes.
Prior to the half ending, many Florida State reserves, including QB J.J. Cosentino, were inserted into the game, signaling the normal starters earned the rest of the day off.
The Seminoles had struggled offensively all season, failing to reach the 30 point plateau until Saturday.
James Blackman threw for 179 yards and three touchdowns on 11-15 passing. Cam Akers led Florida State running backs with 44 yards on nine carries. Jacques Patrick added 28 yards and two touchdowns.
This isn’t the first time Delaware State has been on the wrong end of a lopsided score vs. an FBS opponent. Earlier this season, the Hornets lost on the road at Missouri 79-0.
Coming into the game, Florida State was favored by more than 50 points. However, with the quarter times being altered, all bets placed on this game will likely be cancelled.
