I still can’t believe it. My favorite sports team, the Florida State Seminoles somehow found a way to win against conference rival the Clemson Tigers last night – in a game where they had every opportunity to lose and end their run as the nation’s #1 team. What a game.
Without Winston, FSU Survives Clemson In OT
The crazy, back and forth battle was hard to watch for die-hard Seminoles fans (myself included) at times, as the offense struggled mightily throughout the night. Backup quarterback Sean Maguire did his best to lead the offense in Jameis Winston’s absence, but it really didn’t look good at times and the result was in doubt all the way until the end.
Fortunately, a Clemson fumble near the end of regulation gave FSU the opportunity to finally pull this one out in overtime. That’s when Florida State’s defense shut down the Tigers on fourth and short, a play call that was undoubtedly made due to Clemson’s kicker missing two field goals earlier in the game.
From there, FSU discovered its running game for the first time all night, and I can only imagine the decibel level at Doak Campbell Stadium as Karlos Williams took it around the corner for a touchdown on the Seminoles’ ensuing overtime possession to win it.
Safe to say, I got a workout in just from jumping up and down at the good and not so good plays throughout the game. Never a dull moment, guys. Way to get the job done last night. Still #1. Go ‘Noles!
