Wins haven’t come easily for the Florida State football program of late. The blowouts of 2013 felt like a brief refresher from the 90s, but since then the Seminoles have, more often than not, had to scratch and claw their way to victories. Saturday’s road showdown with Louisville was no exception, as the ’Noles didn’t claim their first lead until just double-digit seconds remained on the clock.

At the helm of the FSU comeback was quarterback Deondre Francois, who marshaled an impressive final drive that saw Florida State pull ahead, once and for all, after he connected with Nyqwan Murray for the game-winning score against the Cardinals.

12 was underwhelming for FSU in the first half, but put together some nice throws when it mattered most, and that was the difference between the Seminoles improving to 3-2 on the season while UL dropped to 2-3, and on its home field.
