Final Score: (2) Florida State 42, Louisville 31
Louisville, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Florida State escaped by the skin of its teeth once again on Thursday. The second-ranked Seminoles fell into a huge hole against upset-minded Louisville but scored 35 of the final 42 points to pull out a hard-fought 42-31 victory in a hostile environment. Florida State trailed 21-0 against one of the nation's stingiest defenses and never blinked an eye. Dalvin Cook scored the go-ahead touchdown with 3:46 remaining, and the Seminoles (8-0, 5-0 ACC) miraculously ran their school-record winning streak to 24. Jameis Winston was intercepted three times and still wound up throwing for 401 yards and three touchdowns for the Seminoles, who racked up 574 yards of total offense -- more than 300 than the Cardinals had allowed coming in. Will Gardner threw for 330 yards, 214 of which went to DeVante Parker, while Michael Dyer gashed the Seminoles for 134 yards and three TDs on the ground. Louisville (6-2, 4-2) was trying to end FSU's 19-game win streak against ACC opponents in their first meeting as conference rivals.
