Football

Los Angeles Rams’ Cam Akers and Jalen Ramsey advanced to the next round of the playoffs in a nail-biting game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in which a second-half comeback almost took them out of their bid to the Super Bowl. Other former FSU stars who played this weekend included Ryan Izzo, Auden Tate, Josh Kaindoh, Derrick Nnadi, Bobby Hart, and Roderick Johnson.

Kaindoh, Nnadi, Tate, and Johnson also advanced.

Basketball

Both men’s and women’s basketball teams won this weekend and in the exact opposite fashion from their previous matchup men’s basketball found themselves facing a buzzer-beater as the Miami Hurricanes were able to put on a second-half rally only to fall short to the Noles (61-60.) The team will travel to McCamish Pavillion this Wednesday to face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at 9 p.m. and will play at home on Saturday afternoon against the Virginia Tech Hokies at 3.
