                        === No. 11 FSU bedevils Duke ===
 
 Tallahassee,  FL  (Sports Network) - Devonta  Freeman rushed for 104 yards and
 two  touchdowns on  12 carries,  as  the 11th-ranked  Florida State  Seminoles
 rolled over the Duke Blue Devils, 48-7, at Doak Campbell Stadium.
 
 EJ  Manuel completed  just 8-of-16  passes, but  racked up  282 yards  and two
 scores through the air for the Seminoles (8-1, 5-1 ACC), who have won three in
 a row and will rest until a Nov. 8 game at Virginia Tech.
 
 "We  definitely  took advantage of the  plays we saw down field," Manuel said.
 "The receivers did a great job, the o-line gave us some time to get down there
 and make some plays down field."
 
 Rodney  Smith posted 112 yards on three receptions, Rashad Greene registered a
 71-yard  TD catch, and James Wilder, Jr. finished with 70 yards and a score on
 13 rushes.
 
 Sean  Renfree  left with a  concussion after one half  of play, but not before
 completing  13-of-21  passes for 92 yards  for the Blue Devils (6-3, 3-2), who
 have dropped three of four. Anthony Boone went the rest of the way by totaling
 37 yards on just 3-of-15 efficiency.
 
 Jela Duncan contributed 46 yards and Duke's lone touchdown on 13 carries.
 
 Florida  State jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead thanks to a 71-yard hookup from
 Manuel to Greene and a 75-yard punt return by Tyler Hunter.
 
 "I  just trusted my  blockers. I knew if a guy got close my guy would take him
 out,  so  I trusted  him and  caught it and  followed my  blocks until the end
 zone," Hunter said about his return.
 
 Dustin  Hopkins added a 27-yard field goal to cap the opening 15 minutes, then
 Wilder and Freeman both crossed the goal line on rushes in the second quarter.
 Duke's first score came just before the end of the half on Duncan's three-yard
 run.
 
 Freeman  capped  FSU's opening  possession of  the third  quarter on a 14-yard
 touchdown  gallop,  and Manuel's loft  for Kelvin  Benjamin from 35 yards away
 made it 45-7.
 
 Hopkins  set a  personal record when he  split the uprights from 56 yards away
 with 9:40 left in regulation to cap the rout.
