FLORIDA STATE 41, LOUISIANA TECH 7

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 116

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State's Peter Warrick came back to college for his final season with a purpose: He wants a national championship on his resume when he turns pro.

Warrick's slithering 20 yard touchdown run late in the first half broke a 7-7 tie as the top ranked Seminoles overcame a sluggish start to take a 41-7 victory Saturday over Louisiana Tech.

Warrick, who also caught nine passes for 121 yards, took a handoff from quarterback Chris Weinke and ran laterally across the field - reversing direction twice to elude several Bulldogs defenders - before racing up field to the end zone to give the Seminoles a 14-7 lead 39 seconds before halftime.

Earlier in the same possession, Warrick ran 21 yards on a third down reverse to keep the scoring drive alive.

Weinke, making his first appearance since a four hour operation on his spine last November, was 20 of 32 for 242 yards and threw two touchdown passes to freshman Anquan Boldin on plays covering 4 and 29 yards.

Sparked by Warrick's touchdown, Florida State blew the game open in the third quarter.

William McCray scored on a 1 yard run and Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 49 yard field goal in addition to Boldin's second TD catch as Florida State took a 31-7 lead.

Louisiana Tech tied the game 7-7 midway through the second quarter when quarterback Tim Rattay arched a 13 yard scoring pass to John Simon.

Rattay, the nation's leading passer a year ago, completed 28 of 48 passes for 240 yards, but suffered two interceptions.

Florida State's defense, ranked first nationally a year ago, allowed 269 yards, but only 80 in the second half.

Linebacker Theon Rackley picked off Rattay's pass and ran 10 yards for a touchdown early in the final period, boosting Florida State's lead to 38-7.

Janikowski added a 23 yard field goal to complete the scoring as Florida State extended its home unbeaten streak to 41 games. The Seminoles' last loss in Tallahassee was a 17-16 defeat to Miami in 1991.

Warrick's go ahead touchdown came after Louisiana Tech, threatening to take the lead, instead turned the ball over.

Tech's Sean Canagelosi fumbled when hit at the Florida State 5 by Clevan Thomas, and Sean Key recovered for the Seminoles.

Louisiana Tech had gotten the ball when Bobby Gray picked off Weinke's pass from the end zone to avoid being sacked for a safety. Weinke had thrown 237 consecutive passes without an interception, eclipsing the Atlantic Coast Conference mark of 231 straight by Virginia's Matt Blundin.

Louisiana Tech was a last minute substitute on the Florida State schedule for Auburn, which paid $500,000 to buy out of a two year, home and home deal with the powerful Seminoles.

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 118

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State's Peter Warrick and Georgia Tech's Joe Hamilton lived up to their billing Saturday. So, too, did top ranked Florida State, which had too many weapons in a 41-35 victory over the 10th ranked Yellow Jackets.

Hamilton threw a 22 yard touchdown pass to Kelly Campbell with 1:35 left as the Yellow Jackets (1-1) closed to 41-35 in the final minute. An onside kick was fielded by Florida State's Travis Minor and the Seminoles (2-0) ran out the clock to win the Atlantic Coast Conference opener.

Hamilton, who was knocked out of the last two games against Florida State, was 22 of 25 for 387 yards and four touchdowns, completing his final 14 passes of the game.

Warrick caught a touchdown pass, ran for a TD and finished with 167 yards as Florida State extended its home unbeaten streak to 42 games.

The teams combined for 595 yards in the first half and Florida State scored last to take a 28-21 halftime lead. The game was tied three times in the half.

Florida State, which never trailed in the game, took the lead for good at 28-21 with 68 seconds left in the half when Jeff Chaney weaved 29 yards for a TD on a screen pass from Chris Weinke.

Florida State finally got a bit of breathing room on the first drive of the second half when Warrick caught a 26 yard pass from Weinke for a touchdown and a 35-21 advantage.

Hamilton's 11 yard TD throw to Kerry Watkins shaved the Georgia Tech deficit to 35-28. Florida State countered on field goals by Sebastian Janikowski covering 46 and 45 yards for a 41-28 lead.

Once the teams scored, they couldn't stop. The teams produced touchdowns on seven straight series, combining for five in the second quarter alone.

Georgia Tech had tied the game 21-21 when Hamilton and Kelly Campbell hooked up on a 56 yard touchdown.

Minor's 18 yarder midway through the second quarter had given the Seminoles a 21-14 lead, just two minutes after Hamilton's 19 yard run had tied the game 14-14.

Dan Kendra, making his first start at fullback, put Florida State into a 14-7 lead early in the quarter when he caught a 3 yard TD pass from Weinke. Kendra, recruited by Florida State to play quarterback, also lined up at his old position to convert first downs on two short yardage keepers.

Warrick, lining up at quarterback in a shotgun formation, ran 17 yards for the game's first score. His 59 yard catch keyed the drive.

Dez White's 80 yard touchdown catch tied the score 7-7 and the scoring parade was off.

Georgia Tech had won six straight games dating back to a 34-7 defeat last October to Florida State.

FLORIDA STATE 42, NORTH CAROLINA STATE 11

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 120

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Since Florida State's offensive and defensive units don't seem to be in sync at the same time, it's a good thing placekicker Sebastian Janikowski has been almost perfect this season.

Janikowski kicked five field goals, blasted all of his kickoffs into or out of the end zone - twice hitting the goal post crossbar - and ran down a North Carolina State linebacker to save points in No. 1 Florida State's 42-11 victory Saturday.

Florida State (3-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) is 100-13-1 this decade - the only school to reach the century mark in wins. The Seminoles also are 56-2 in the ACC as they go after an eight straight league title.

North Carolina State (3-1, 0-1) upset the Seminoles 24-7 last year behind quarterback Jamie Barnette, who lost two fumbles and was intercepted four times Saturday.

Florida State's defense, which gave up five touchdowns a week earlier in a 41-35 victory over Georgia Tech, looked back on its game against the Wolfpack.

Two turnovers by Barnette resulted in Florida State touchdowns. Abdual Howard returned one interception 47 yards for the game's final score and Jamal Reynolds recovered a Barrette fumble in the end zone for a third quarter TD that gave Florida State a 32-11 lead. The ball was stripped by David Warren.

Barrette, who threw for 287 yards against Florida State last year, was 10 of 25 for 129 yards.

Florida State led 18-3 at the half on a 1 yard touchdown run by fullback Dan Kendra and four field goals.

Janikowski, a left footed junior, kicked field goals of 30, 47, 22 and 31 yards. He also ran down Clayton White, who intercepted a 2 point conversion pass thrown by holder Marcus Outzen after a poor snap.

Janikowski, who added a 47 yarder in the fourth quarter, could have been given an opportunity to try one from 61 yards away on the final play of the first half but Florida State instead was unsuccessful on a desperation "Hail Mary" try.

Travis Minor scored on a 2 yard run that gave Florida State a 25-3 lead early in the third quarter.

Kent Passingham's 22 yard field goal that briefly tied the game 3-3 in the first quarter and Rahshon Spikes' 3 yard run in the third quarter accounted for the Wolfpack's scoring. Spikes led all runners with 89 yards on 21 carries.

Florida State's offense struggled all day, managing 378 yards - its lowest output in three games.

Weinke, who threw six interceptions in last year's loss, was intercepted twice Saturday and failed for the first time in 13 starts at Florida State to throw a TD pass.

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 122

CHAPEL HILL, NC - The main problem for No. 1 Florida State on Saturday was staying interested for four quarters after its lightning quick start.

The Seminoles (4-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) put this one away early, scoring four touchdowns before the first quarter was half over en route to a 42-10 victory over North Carolina.

It was Florida State's fastest start in its seven plus seasons in the ACC.

Bowden played a whopping 52 players in the first quarter and 70 in the game.

It's not a good thing for the Tar Heels (1-2), who are off to their first 0-2 ACC start in a decade with games at Clemson and No. 10 Georgia Tech next on the schedule.

Sophomore quarterback Ronald Curry had three passes intercepted, fumbled once and was sacked five times.

The Seminoles ran their record to 32-4 as the nation's top ranked team and Bowden moved within four victories of 300.

Many of the Florida State players said they wanted to prove a point with a quick start.

Chris Weinke, who threw for 272 yards, marched the Seminoles 80 yards on their opening drive, completing passes of 28, 20 and 19 yards before Minor scored on a 14 yard run - the first of his two first quarter TDs.

Curry played giveaway on the next two possessions as the Tar Heels fell into a deep hole against one of the nation's better defenses.

Three plays after Minor's score, Curry was stripped of the ball by Jerry Johnson. David Warren recovered at the North Carolina 25 and the Seminoles were in business again. Forty five seconds later, Minor was in the end zone on a 5 yard TD run.

Curry's first pass on North Carolina's next series was returned 25 yards for a score by Sean Key, who stepped in front of tight end Alge Crumpler and raced down the right sideline untouched for a 21-O lead less than five minutes into the game.

The Tar Heels received a mock cheer from their crowd when Curry finally completed a pass for a first down, but the drive stalled and more bad news was on the way.

Warrick, Florida State's flashy receiver and equally elusive return man, raced 75 yards with a punt return for a score, helping his cause in the Heisman Trophy race. It was the first time a team had scored four TDs against the Tar Heels in a quarter since Florida in 1969.

North Carolina picked up the pace and closed to 28-3 on a 36 yard field goal, but allowed the Seminoles to strike quickly again at the end of the half.

Weinke drove Florida State 92 yards in 90 seconds, capping the drive with a 25 yard pass to former walk on and fourth string receiver Atrews Bell.

Florida State intercepted a third pass off Curry on North Carolina's opening possession of the second half, and Warrick's spectacular 28 yard catch over a defender set up a 1 yard run by backup quarterback Marcus Outzen.

FLORIDA STATE 51, DUKE 23

10/02/1999, Jacksonville, Fl

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 124

JACKSONVILLE, FL - Florida State coach Bobby Bowden says his team is improving quarter by quarter.

A week after getting 28 points at North Carolina in the first quarter, the top ranked Seminoles rolled up a 44-0 halftime lead on the way to a 51-23 victory Saturday over winless Duke.

The veteran Florida State coach had to find several starters for some fourth quarter action after Duke scored 13 unanswered points in the third period against a host of Florida State reserves.

Chris Weinke threw five touchdown passes, three to Peter Warrick, to lead an offense now averaging 43.2 points a game.

Florida State (5-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) scored on all eight of its first half possessions as Bowden picked up his 297th career victory.

The Seminoles, who needed only seven minutes last week to take a 28-0 lead at North Carolina, took a 24-0 lead 10 seconds into the second quarter after Sebastian Janikowski's 46 yard field goal.

Warrick caught all three of his scoring passes in the first quarter and then threw for a 35 yard touchdown to Laveranues Coles in the second quarter.

Janikowski added a 27 yard field goal and Weinke threw his fourth TD pass of the half, seven yards to fullback Dan Kendra, to round out the first half scoring.

Weinke didn't play in the third quarter, but was put back into the game after backups Marcus Outzen and Jared Jones were ineffective.

Weinke, 19 of 27 for 290 yards, immediately hooked up with Ron Dugans on an 84 yard touchdown pass play to give Florida State a 51-13 lead.

Duke (0-4, 0-1) scored the only points in the third period on a 15 yard touchdown run by Kevin Thompson and field goals by Sims Lenhardt covering 46 and 47 yards. Lenhardt added a 48 yard field goal in the fourth period and Thompson threw a 16 yard scoring pass to Richmond Flowers.

Nine Duke penalties and two interceptions in the first half made it easy work for Florida State.

Brian Allen made a juggling interception of Bobby Campbell's pass to set up Florida State's first touchdown.

Duke received $800,000 to move its home game to Jacksonville.

FLORIDA STATE 31, MIAMI 21

10/09/1999, TALLAHASSEE, FL

Click here for program cover

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 126

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Chris Weinke connected with 11 different receivers for 332 yards and two touchdowns Saturday as No. 1 Florida State overcame a sloppy first half for a 31-21 victory over No. 19 Miami.

Germaine Stringer, a fifth year senior with just 12 catches before Saturday, had three for 80 yards, including a 48 yarder 3:47 into the game. And Ron Dugans came through with five grabs for 80 yards, including a 54 yarder that set up Travis Minor's clinching 2 yard touchdown with 9:55 left in the game.

Florida State (6-0) has now beaten Miami (2-3) five years in a row, and in doing so the Seminoles won their 27th straight at Doak Campbell Stadium and 44th without a loss. Both streaks are the longest among major colleges.

Miami scored all its points in a 21-21 first half, with Kenny Kelly throwing TD passes of 8 yards to Reggie Wayne and 80 and 14 yards to Santana Moss. The Hurricanes finished with 448 yards, but were held to 166 in the second half by a defense that almost gave away the game in the opening 30 minutes.

With the Seminoles ahead 24-21 after Sebastian Janikowski's 38 yard field goal midway through the third quarter, Weinke led the Seminoles on a game clinching 97 yard drive. After Dugans' S4 yard gain to the Miami 30, FSU moved down to the 13, when Miami's Leonard Myers was called for pass interference in the end zone against Dugans.

On the next play, from the Miami 3, Minor powered into the end zone and Florida State kept its national title hopes alive as 80,976 fans broke into the Seminole War Chant.

Minor finished with 25 carries for 146 yards. Kelly was sensational, hitting 27 of 41 passes for 370 yards. Moss finished with nine catches for 180 yards.

Bowden gave Weinke credit for taking a leadership role usually reserved for Peter Warrick, who coined this year's theme that appears on the front of the Seminoles practice T-shirts: "TEAM - It's not about me."

The Seminoles opened a 7-0 lead on Weinke's hookup with Stringer, one of two replacements for Warrick, caught his 48 yard TD pass just 3:47 into the game. He beat Myers on a post pattern, caught the ball in stride at the 13 and scored untouched.

Miami, the last team to beat Florida State at Doak Campbell (in 1991), wasted little time in pulling even.

Kelly threw an 8 yard scoring pass to Wayne 3:08 later, the football sailing over the head of cornerback Mario Edwards in the left corner of the end zone and into the Hurricane receiver's arms.

The Seminoles moved ahead 14-7, on Jeff Chaney's 3 yard TD run, and the Hurricanes responded on Kelly's 80 yard TD pass to Moss.

Florida State lost a scoring chance late in the first quarter when Dan Kendra fumbled at the Miami 10 and the Hurricanes A1 Blades recovered.

Miami took a 21-14 lead after an 89 yard march, with Kelly hitting Moss on a 6 yard TD, with Edwards again the beaten defender in the end zone. This time it was the Seminoles turn to even the score, with Weinke finding tight end Ryan Sprague behind Miami's linebackers on an 18 yard scoring pass.

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 128

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Chris Weinke threw two touchdown passes to Atrews Bell and Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field goals Saturday night as top ranked Florida State shook off a lethargic first half to defeat Wake Forest 33-10.

It marked the 299th career coaching victory for Florida State's Bobby Bowden, who will try to become only the fifth Division 1A coach to reach 300 victories next week at Clemson, which is coached by his son, Tommy.

Florida State (7-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) extended its unbeaten homefield streak to 45 games, including 28 straight victories.

The Seminoles, now 104-13-1 in the 1990s, have won the most games in a decade in NCAA history.

Florida State led 9-3 at halftime as Janikowski kicked field goals from 31, 34, and 52 yards. He added a 32 yarder in the fourth quarter.

Florida State scored the game's first touchdown 4:17 into the third quarter when Bell caught a 16 yard pass from Weinke to give the Seminoles a 16-3 lead. The duo hooked up again on a 9 yard touchdown pass in the final minute of the third period as Florida State built its lead to 23-3.

Following a fumble recovery by Florida State's Tommy Polley, the Seminoles took a 30-3 lead in the first minute of the fourth quarter when Anquan Boldin ran in from two yards out of the quarterback position.

Wake Forest (3-3, 1-3) took a 3-0 lead on a 24 yard field goal by Matt Burdick just three minutes into the game, but could only manage 66 yards of offense and three first downs by halftime.

Wake Forest scored its only touchdown on the final play of the game on a 1 yard pass from C.J. Leak to Fabian Davis.

Wake Forest's Morgan Kane came into the game averaging 134 yards rushing a game, but was held to just 28 yards on a dozen tries.

The Seminoles were playing for the second straight game without receiver and return specialist Peter Warrick, their do everything offensive threat.

Weinke completed passes to 10 receivers for a career high 354 yards.

FLORIDA STATE 17, CLEMSON 14

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 130

CLEMSON, SC - It was a victory only a mother could love.

Florida State's Bobby Bowden sneaked away with career victory No. 300 on Saturday night as the top ranked Seminoles rallied for a 17-14 decision over Clemson in major college football's first father-son coaching matchup.

In the weeks leading up to this historic game, Ann Bowden said she was rooting for her husband of 50 years to win, but in a close game against her son, Tommy Bowden.

With star receiver Peter Warrick back in the lineup after his legal case was favorably resolved on Friday, the Seminoles (8-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) were more lucky than good in beating the Tigers before a record crowd of 86,200 at Memorial Stadium.

Warrick caught 11 passes for 121 yards and Sebastian Janikowksi's third field goal, a 39 yarder with 5:26 left, broke a 14 all tie and kept Florida State alive in its drive for the national championship.

Clemson (3-4, 3-2) had its bid to send the game into overtime ended when Tony Lazzara's 42 yard field goal attempt fell short with 1:57 left in the game.

Bowden joined Bear Bryant, Pop Warner, Amos Alonzo Stagg and Joe Paterno as the only major college coaches to reach 300 victories.

When the game ended, Bobby Bowden was hugged by several of his players, then lifted on their shoulders as the group made its way to midfield to meet Tommy Bowden.

At the center of the field, father and son were pressed together by a horde of photographers. They spoke briefly before heading off the field accompanied by security guards.

Asked if he thought his team was still No. 1, he added: "We probably are, but I don't think we played like it."

On a day of upsets - No. 3 Nebraska, No. 9 Michigan, No. 10 Alabama and No. 11 Michigan State lost - the Seminoles came back from a 14-3 halftime deficit.

Janikowksi's second 33 yard field goal of the game cut the margin to 14-6 early in the third quarter. The Seminoles pulled even on Travis Minor's 1 yard touchdown run and Chris Weinke's 2 point conversion pass to Dan Kendra with 10 seconds left in the third quarter.

In the final 15 minutes, the defenses took over, but Florida State managed to put together a winning drive. Weinke, who was 24 of 49 for 258 yards, hit Ron Dugans for gains of 7, 7 and 22 yards to set up Janikowski's game winner.

Earlier, Janikowski missed field goal attempts of 45 and 47 yards.

Many of the Bowden clan were at the game, including a dozen or so grandkids, and they saw father and son go at each other with a vengeance.

And, of course, there was a bit of trickery. Tommy ordered a fake punt that kept alive a drive that resulted in a touchdown. In the final quarter, it was a dipsy doodle Dantzler (102 yards passing, 86 yards rushing) to Travis Zachery to Rod Gardner, who completed a 14 yard pass to Dantzler that went to the Florida State 44. It set the stage for a potential game tying field goal, but Lazzara was well short in his attempt.

The 69 year old Bowden, who began his coaching career at Samford in 1959, never thought he'd be at this coaching stuff so long. But when he arrived at Florida State in 1976 after six years at West Virginia, he found a home - and built an empire.

He turned a program that had considered dropping football into one of the most formidable in the country, especially over the past dozen years. Bowden's Seminoles have finished in the top four of the AP poll and won at least 10 games in every season since 1987, capturing the national championship in 1993.

Bowden, with folksy charm and honesty that has parents of high school stars lining up to sign on with Florida State, has won 227 games at Florida State, and his Seminoles are 105-13-1 in the 1990s - the most wins in any decade by a major college team.

This latest one, though, may have been the toughest.

FLORIDA STATE 35, VIRGINIA 10

10/30/1999, CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 132

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Another slow start for top ranked Florida State, another come from behind victory. And this time, it was the same guy who made the early going hopeful for Virginia who wound up spoiling the Cavaliers' aspirations.

Chris Weinke shook off three first half interceptions with three touchdown passes, including the go ahead throw to Marvin Minnis in the third quarter Saturday night, as the Seminoles rallied for an easy 35-10 victory at Virginia.

Weinke finished 24 of 35 for 297 yards with three touchdowns, including a 4 yarder to Minnis for the Seminoles' first first half touchdown in three games.

Weinke's go ahead pass to Minnis with 3:16 left in the quarter was the second scoring hookup for the pair and gave the Seminoles (9-0, 7-0 ACC) a 14-10 lead. They padded that 2:46 later when Travis Minor scored on a 6 yard burst.

Two fourth quarter touchdowns capped the scoring for the Seminoles. One was a 50 yard pass to Peter Warrick that was highlight film material.

Warrick, held in check to that point, took the short pass in the right flat and outran and outdanced several defenders, finally breaking free with a cut to the left side that left all of them in position to watch him score.

Warrick finished with six catches for 81 yards. Ron Dugans had six for 84.

Virginia (4-4, 3-3), which led 10-7 at halftime, lost quarterback Dan Ellis when he was hit hard on consecutive plays at the end of the first half. Coach George Welsh said his junior starter sustained a concussion and was dazed.

Ellis was 7 of 14 for 44 yards in the half, and junior David Rivers struggled mightily in the first extensive playing time of his career. Rivers was 4 of 11 for 32 yards and threw a costly interception to Corey Simon at the Virginia 27, setting up the Seminoles' third touchdown.

Jones' night included a 71 yard run the longest against Florida State this season - and ended with him atop Virginia's career rushing list.

Trailing 10-7, the Seminoles were facing second and goal at the 2 when Marcus Outzen replaced Weinke and tried to sneak the ball in. But Outzen was hit on the play and coughed up the ball, Ljubomir Stamenich recovering for the Cavaliers.

Virginia's halftime lead came on a 26 yard field goal by Todd Braverman with 2:21 left. Jones set it up with his 71 yard run down the left sideline.

Florida State tied it 6:42 later on Weinke's 4 yard pass to Minnis. The third down pass capped a 14 play, 91 yard drive that had three third down conversions, including passes of 8 and 9 yards to Dugans that moved the chains.

FLORIDA STATE 49, MARYLAND 10

11/13/1999, TALLAHASSEE, FL, ACC Champ

Click here for program cover

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 134

TALLAHASSEE, FL - After weeks of inconsistent performances, top ranked Florida State looked deserving of its ranking Saturday.

Chris Weinke threw six touchdown passes - three to Peter Warrick - as the Seminoles clobbered Maryland 49-10, reaching 10 victories for the 13th straight season.

Florida State trailed at one point in each of its previous four victories, barely escaping once - 17-14 at Clemson, October 23.

Weinke, who did not play in the fourth quarter, threw four touchdown passes by halftime. He had two 6 yard scoring throws to Ron Dugans, another 5 yard TD to Warrick and a 30 yarder to Atrews Bell as the Seminoles built a 28-3 lead.

Weinke combined with Warrick on scoring plays covering 26 and 28 yards in the third period as the Seminoles increased the lead to 42-3. Marcus Outzen's 35 yard touchdown pass to Greg Moore in the fourth quarter completed Florida State's scoring.

Maryland (5-5, 2-5) was hurt by five turnovers and also had two punts blocked, offsetting LaMont Jordan's 169 rushing yards, the most this year against Florida State.

Warrick caught nine passes for 134 yards and became the ACC's career leader with 3,427 receiving yards. North Carolina State's Torry Holt held the record for a year with 3,379 yards.

Although he missed two games for legal reasons, Warrick has caught 62 passes for 844 yards and eight touchdowns. His touchdown catches Saturday give him the school record with 32, eclipsing E.G. Green's 29.

Weinke, who was 23 of 33 for 304 yards, matched the school record for touchdown passes set in 1989 by Peter Tom Willis against Memphis State.

Jermaine Arrington's 77 yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter set up Maryland's only touchdown, a 1 yard pass from Trey Evans to tight end Eric James. The Terrapins also scored on Brian Kopka's 38 yard field goal in the opening minute of the second quarter.

Maryland lost its next best scoring opportunity in the third period when Evans' pass was intercepted in Florida State's end zone by Clevan Thomas, who had two of the Seminoles' four interceptions.

Freshman quarterback Latrez Harrison, making his first start for Maryland, was knocked out of the game in the first half with a sprained ankle.

Since joining the ACC in 1992, Florida State has won six league titles outright, shared two and stands 62-2 in conference play.

The Seminoles have not lost at home in eight years, a span of 46 games while winning their last 29 since a 31-31 tie against Florida in 1994.

Bowden's teams are 107-13-1 this decade and 57-1-1 at home where they haven't lost since a 17-16 defeat to Miami in November 1991.

FLORIDA STATE 30, FLORIDA 23

11/20/1999, GAINESVILLE, FL

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 136

GAINESVILLE, FL - When the final pass fell incomplete in the end zone, and No. 1 Florida State had locked up yet another chance at a national title, the Seminoles raced to midfield for their rendition of the Swamp Stomp.

Peter Warrick ran for one touchdown and set up the clinching score with a 38 yard catch, and Sebastian Janikowski kicked three field goals - one from 54 yards - as the Seminoles beat No. 3 Florida 30-23 Saturday before a record crowd of 85,747 at Florida Field.

The win all but clinched a spot for coach Bobby Bowden and the Seminoles (11-0) in the Sugar Bowl, the site of the Bowl Championship Series' national title game on January 4.

The Gators (9-2) were their own worst enemy in losing for just the fourth time - second this season - in 61 home games under coach Steve Spurrier. Florida was called for 15 penalties totaling 93 yards, and in the fourth quarter had a punt blocked and threw an interception at the Seminoles' 2 yard line.

For the past seven years, this passionate rivalry has become a playoff elimination game, and the Gators weren't knocked out until the very end.

With the Gators on the FSU 40, Jesse Palmer threw a desperation pass into the end zone, where a half dozen players were waiting for the ball. It was tipped by several Florida State defenders and fell to the ground before Brian Haugabrook had a chance to grab it.

Chris Weinke, who missed last year's games against Wake Forest, Florida and Tennessee with a neck injury, was 24 of 36 for 263 yards and a touchdown - a 27 yarder to Marvin Minnis with 6:03 left that put the Seminoles ahead 30-16. Two plays earlier, Weinke hit Warrick for 38 yards.

The Gators came back, though, with Doug Johnson throwing a 3 yard TD pass to Haugabrook to trim the lead to seven points with 3:33 left. But the Seminoles recovered an on side kick and then held off the Gators' last gasp.

To no one's surprise, Florida alternated quarterbacks, with Johnson and Jesse Palmer taking snaps every other play in an effort to get the offense going. It didn't work the way Spurrier had hoped as Florida had a good chunk of its 346 yards in the final few minutes.

Florida's defense kept the game from getting out of hand early on, forcing the Seminoles to settle for first half field goals of 22 and 27 yards by Janikowski.

Johnson was 20 of 36 for 214 yards with two interceptions; Palmer 8 of 19 for 166 yards.

Warrick caught nine passes for 90 yards and ran for 19 yards, including a 4 yard TD to give FSU a 7-0 first quarter lead.

Florida State led 13-6 at the half, but the margin could have been greater. After scoring on their opening drive, the Seminoles moved to the Gators 4 the next two times they had the ball but settled for Janikowski field goals.

Jeff Chandler kicked field goals of 50 and 45 yards to keep the Gators in striking distance entering the second half.

Florida needed 71 seconds to take its only lead of the game. First Chandler kicked his third field goal, a 22 yarder, to cut the margin to 13-9. The Seminoles took over and on third down, and with Florida's defense still setting up, Weinke took the snap and tried to hit Minnis for a big gainer.

But cornerback Bennie Alexander intercepted the pass and returned it 43 yards for a touchdown, putting the Gators ahead 16-13 with 7:39 left in the third period.

Unfazed by the blunder, Weinke brought Florida State into Janikowski's field goal range. After his successful 49 yarder was wiped out by a delay of game penalty, Janikowski kicked a 54 yarder to tie the score at 16 all.

Then came Florida State's big break, linebacker Tommy Polley blocked a Florida punt. He blew through the middle of the line, leaped in front of Alan Rhine's punt and safety Jean Jeune recovered at the Florida 21. Six plays later, Jeff Chaney scored from 2 yards out with 34 seconds left in the third quarter and the Seminoles had the lead for good, 23-16.

Florida nearly tied the score, moving to the Seminoles 8, but after a holding penalty moved the ball back 10 yards, Johnson's third down pass was intercepted at the 2 by free safety Chris Hope. A few plays later, Weinke found Minnis in the right corner of the end zone, and the Seminoles had the win that surely puts them in their second straight national title game.

This year, Bowden is hoping for different results as one more win would give the 70 year old coach the first perfect season of his career.

FLORIDA STATE 46, VIRGINIA TECH 29

01/04/2000, Sugar Bowl, New Orleans, La

Click here for program cover

From the 2000 FSU Media Guide, Page 138

NEW ORLEANS, LA - No. 1 at the start, No. 1 at the finish. Florida State is the perfect national champion.

Led by the sizzling Peter Warrick and the steady Chris Weinke, the Seminoles held off Virginia Tech for a 46-29 victory in the national championship game Tuesday night.

The Hokies' thrilling freshman quarterback, Michael Vick, did all he could to run his team to victory in the Sugar Bowl, but it wasn't enough.

Warrick electrified a Superdome crowd with a record 20 point game - he caught touchdown passes of 64 and 43 yards, returned a punt 59 yards for a score and snagged a 2-point conversion pass from Weinke.

The 27 year old Weinke completed 20 of 34 passes for 329 yards and four TDs - two to Warrick and two to Ron Dugans. Warrick finished with six catches for 163 yards in the highest scoring Sugar Bowl in history.

Vick threw for 225 yards and one TD and ran for 97 yards and a score.

Florida State (12-0) was certain to become the first team to go wire to wire in The Associated Press' poll since the preseason ratings began in 1950. The final AP poll will be released early Wednesday to confirm the obvious.

The Seminoles were automatically crowned national champs in the USA Today-ESPN coaches' poll under the Bowl Championship Series format.

All week, Warrick and his senior pals promised each other they would do everything possible to avoid losing three title games. They did - in a big way - and Bobby Bowden completed a remarkable year. He won his 300th game in the first father vs. son coaching matchup, celebrated his 70th birthday and 50th wedding anniversary and finally attained his first perfect season in 40 years as a coach.

Warrick came up with his best performance in the final game of his college career. In the first half, he caught three passes for 100 yards and his punt return helped the Seminoles build a 28-14 lead after 30 minutes of big plays. Last season, he was held to one catch for seven yards in a Fiesta Bowl loss to Tennessee in the national title game. In fact, in three previous bowl games, Warrick totaled five catches and no TDs.

He opened the scoring with his 64 yard grab, then took a punt and blazed past Tech defenders for a 59 yard score and a 28-7 lead.

Late in the game, with half the crowd of 79,280 chanting "Peter Warrick, Peter Warrick," Weinke reared back and threw a 43 yard TD pass to the wide receiver, who caught the ball while diving into the end zone with a Virginia Tech defender draped over him. The chants rang out again and Warrick ran to the sideline to celebrate with his teammates.

The win over the upstart Hokies (11-1) stamped the Seminoles as the Team of the Decade and ended a run of national title misses under Bowden. Since winning its first national crown in 1993, Florida State had lost two of the past three title games 23-16 to Tennessee last season, and 52-20 to Florida in '97 in what until Tuesday night was the highest scoring Sugar Bowl.

The loss ended Virginia Tech's dream season and a bid for its first national title in 107 years of playing football. Vick was valiant in defeat. The 19 year old lefthander overcame a lost fumble near the Seminoles goal line on the game's opening drive and led the Hokies back from a 21 point deficit to a 29-28 lead with 2:13 left in the third quarter.

Florida State somehow regrouped and regained the lead as Weinke hit Dugans on a 15 yard score with 12:59 left in the game. Warrick caught a 2 point conversion pass from Weinke and the `Noles were back in the lead, 36-29.

Florida State got the ball back when linebacker Bobby Rhodes' helmet knocked the ball from Vick's grasp and safety Sean Key recovered at the Hokies 34. The turnover set up Sebastian Janikowski's 32 yard field goal with 10:26 that put the Seminoles ahead 39-29.

And then came Warrick's best catch of all to seal the title. After stopping Tech on fourth down, Florida State took over at the Tech 43 and Weinke found Warrick, who held onto the ball with cornerback Roynell Whitaker hanging over him.

Down 28-14 at the half, Virginia Tech seized the momentum. Vick threw a 26 yard completion to set up Shayne Graham's 23 yard field goal to make it 28-17.

The Hokies defense came alive and forced a punt, which was returned 46 yards to the Seminoles 36 by Ike Canton, the cornerback subbing for injured Ricky Hall. Three plays later, Andre Kendrick raced 29 yards for a touchdown to pull the Hokies within 28-23. Kendrick stepped in for Shyrone Stith, Tech's 1,000 yard rusher who missed the second half with a sprained left ankle. Vick's 2 point conversion pass attempt was incomplete.

Cornerback Anthony Midget then intercepted a long pass intended for Warrick, and Vick went to work again. He threw a 23 yard pass to Cullen Hawkins, was sacked for a 7 yard loss and then went on a catch me if you can 22 yard dash to the 6. Kendrick scored from 6 yards out and the Hokies were ahead for the first and only time.

While Virginia Tech may be the undisputed champion on special teams - 63 blocked punts and kicks in the 1990s - it was Florida State that excelled in that department, too. Sixty eight seconds after Warrick's first score. It was 14-0 after linebacker Tommy Polley blocked a punt by Tech's John Kibble, and Jeff Chaney scooped it up and went 6 yards for a touchdown with 2:14 left in the first quarter. It was the first time in Kibble's career he had a punt blocked.

In the second season under the BCS format, everything went Florida State's way. The Seminoles, ranked No. 1 in both major preseason polls, also had a schedule that was sixth toughest among 114 I-A teams. As long as Florida State kept winning, there was little chance the computer heavy BCS standings would leave the `Noles out of the title game.

Florida State had a healthy Weinke, Warrick for nine games and a solid but unspectacular defense led by noseguard Corey Simon. When the defense was burned for 387 yards and four TD passes by Georgia Tech's Joe Hamilton, the Seminoles' offense took charge for a 41-35 victory on Sept. 11.

Bowden got career victory No. 300 against Clemson, coached by Bobby's son, Tommy, in college football's first father vs. son coaching matchup.

Finally, there was the annual showdown with Florida, this time at The Swamp. After the Gators went ahead 16-13 midway through the third quarter, Weinke led the Seminoles to a tying field goal and two more TDs to seal a 30-23 victory.

Forty-five days later, the relieved Bowden has himself a second national championship. What a decade!
