Florida State drops first game to Clemson.

Gary Cismesia's extra point was good, but the Tigers' defense kept the Seminoles from scoring further.

CLEMSON, SC - First-time starter Cullen Harper threw two touchdown passes in Clemson's 24-18 victory over the No. 19 Seminoles on Monday night.

Harper and the Tigers came out throwing to take a 21-0 lead before the game was 17 minutes old -- and brought their coach, Tommy, his third straight win over father Bobby's Seminoles.

Florida State rallied from 24-3 down in the second half of the season opener for both teams. When Drew Weatherford hit Richard Goodman for a 15-yard TD pass with 11:40 left, the Seminoles trailed by 6.

Weatherford and the Seminoles got the ball back three more times after that, but could not score.

"It looked like stage fright. We were running a new offense but I thought we grasped it better than that. We were bad," Bobby Bowden said.

Clemson fans rushed the field and the collapsible goal posts came down after Weatherford's final pass fell to the ground. But officials chose to review the play, moving orange-clad fans out of the way.

Finally, they were told the play stood and the game was indeed over.

Florida State had a rough first half, managing only one first down and 62 yards. The Seminoles, however, found their rhythm in the second half.

Antone Smith had a 49-yard run to Clemson's 1, then followed with the score that drew them to 24-11. Goodman's TD catch tightened things up even more.

But Weatherford and the Seminoles couldn't sustain the rally.

They got to Clemson's 31 with 3 minutes left. But Florida State's junior quarterback threw three incompletions and was taken down from behind by defensive lineman Philip Merling.

Harper was 14-of-24 for 160 yards and no interceptions. Davis gained 102 yards on 18 carries.

The victory closed Tommy within a win of his father after the ninth meeting of college football's best known family feud.

Bobby's Seminoles won the first four games in the series by a combined score of 160-79. Tommy won four of the past five, including the last three at Death Valley.

Bobby Bowden said he can't be certain the Seminoles will rebound from their fifth loss in their last eight games. "You never know. The season's too young," he said.

Clemson got things going with a reverse to Jacoby Ford that went for 34 yards to Florida State's 23. Three plays later, Harper found Linthicum for an 11-yard touchdown pass.

The Tigers were at it again moments later when linebacker Nick Watkins recovered Preston Parker's fumble.

Davis, who gained 1,187 yards a year ago, showed off his power on the next play, breaking two tackles and cutting hard left near the goal line for his 29-yard touchdown and a 14-0 lead.

Two series later, Harper hooked up with Kelly for a 41-yard touchdown pass.

Florida State Defeats UAB in Tallahassee.

Drew Weatherford threw for 332 yards and three touchdowns.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Drew Weatherford threw for 332 yards and three touchdowns as Florida State rallied from an early two-touchdown deficit and held off UAB 34-24 on Saturday.

The Seminoles fell out of the Top 25 after losing Monday at Clemson and found themselves in a hole to UAB, which has lost nine straight but was up 17-3 lead in the first half.

Weatherford hit a streaking Richard Goodman in stride for a 50-yard touchdown on the final play of the third period that gave the Seminoles a 31-24 lead and Gary Cismesia's 40-yard field goal two minutes later finally gave Florida State some breathing room at 34-24.

Florida State didn't get its first lead, 24-17, until late in the third quarter on Marcus Sim's 1-yard TD run, but UAB countered on Joseph Webb's one-handed catch on a 16-yard pass from Sam Hunt to tie the game at 24.

Tight end Charlie Graham and wideout Greg Carr also caught TD passes for Florida State (1-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), which totaled 520 yards offense.

Although the offensive statistics were virtually even at the half, UAB held a 17-10 lead on the strength of Will Dunbar's 21-yard interception return touchdown just five minutes into the game that made it 10-0.

After a 28-yard field goal by Cismesia, Hunt's 4-yard scoring scramble early in the second quarter boosted UAB into its 17-3 lead.

UAB (0-2) has not won since a 35-29 win over Memphis last Oct. 7.

Florida State lost starting tailback Antone Smith with a concussion midway through the third period and his status for next Saturday's game at Colorado was not immediately known.

Florida State Shuts Down Colorado, 16-6.

Seminoles stifling defense guides team to impressive road victory.

BOULDER, CO - The Seminoles beat Colorado 16-6 Saturday night behind Gary Cismesia's three field goals and a defense that nearly handed the Buffaloes their first shutout in almost two decades.

The Seminoles offense didn't do much, even when they started at the Buffs' 15-yard line late in the game and had to settle for yet another short field goal.

"The most ridiculous demonstration of football I've been around in my life," Florida State offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher fumed. "I'm going to tell you what, if I'm an offensive player, I'm embarrassed. Our defense won that football game. It's ridiculous the mistakes we keep making.

"It's my fault. It starts with me. If you ain't coaching it, you're letting it happen. We're going to find 11 guys who want to do it. We'll start on Tuesday when we get back, I promise you."

The Buffaloes were in danger of getting shut out for the first time since Nov. 12, 1988, at Nebraska, until Cody Hawkins found tight end Tyson DeVree in the back of the end zone on fourth-and-10 from the Seminoles 11 with 3:40 remaining.

That was the latest the Buffs had scored in their 225-game scoring streak, the longest in the Big 12. The Buffs' last whitewash at home was a 28-0 loss to Oklahoma on Nov. 15, 1986.

"Colorado wouldn't quit fighting, kept coming back," Seminoles coach Bobby Bowden said. "I was hoping we could get a shutout. We needed it. Everything looked kind of shoddy to me, but it beats losing."

Said linebacker Derek Nicholson: "We gave up 48 points our first two games, so we wanted to get the shutout. It's disappointing, but six points is not that bad."

After the score, the Buffs went for 2, but Hawkins' throw was high, and Richard Goodman recovered the onside kick for Florida State, which avoided its first 1-2 start since 1989 thanks to its stellar defense.

"Colorado did nothing except line up and kick our tail," Fisher said. "Scheme wise, they didn't have to (do anything). Our defense did a miraculous job. I'm glad they're on our team."

Colorado lost star senior cornerback Terrence Wheatley to a knee injury late in the game. There was no immediate word on the severity of the injury. Coach Dan Hawkins said, "He's fine." But Wheatley didn't look fine limping off the field in the waning minutes.

The Buffs (1-2) had hoped the returns of tailback Hugh Charles (knee) and freshman receiver Josh Smith, the talk of camp before bruising a kidney in preseason practice, would provide a boost, and they did -- just not nearly enough to counter Florida State's vastly superior speed.

Bowden had said he wasn't concerned about the altitude in the Seminoles' first trip into the Rockies, and he was right not to worry.

What bothered the Seminoles much more was Colorado's scrappy defense that made just one big mistake when it allowed Antone Smith to burst through the line with nobody deep to help. The result was a 36-yard touchdown run that helped Florida State take a 10-0 halftime lead -- the first time the 'Noles took a lead into the locker room since last Nov. 18 against Western Michigan.

The Seminoles thwarted the Buffs by using their safeties to shut down the run and relying on their speedy cornerbacks to take away Hawkins' downfield receiving targets.

Colorado finished with minus-27 yards on 25 carries and Hawkins threw 53 times, completing 34 of them for 306 yards with one TD and two interceptions.

"I'm a quarterback, so I like to pass, but I'd like to see our running backs have some success, too," Hawkins said.

But the Florida State offense couldn't capitalize on the good field position it had most of the night.

Smith gained 66 yards on 19 carries and Drew Weatherford was 8-for-18 for 126 yards, no touchdowns and three sacks, and the Seminoles never found any sort of rhythm against the stout Colorado defense.

"I'm not happy at all, by all means," Weatherford said. "We've been doing a pretty good job of getting it into the end zone, I expected us to put it in there when we got down there. But we had stupid penalties, stupid mistakes that kept us out of there."

"I felt like I played terrible," Smith said. "I feel like I left a lot of yards on the field."

A 44-yard punt return from Preston Parker and a 5-yard face mask penalty set up the Seminoles at the Buffs' 15-yard line in the third quarter, but Florida State was forced to settle for Cismesia's 27-yard field goal to make it 13-0.

"This is the first time it's kind of been like that," Bowden said. "When you're backed up on your 10-yard line, you can understand it. When you're on somebody else's 10, that's not supposed to be. I didn't think we were sharp."

Buffaloes kicker Kevin Eberhart missed from 37 and 46 yards. His first miss came at the end of a 16-play first-quarter drive that chewed up 7 1/2 minutes that showed Florida State -- and, more importantly, the Buffs -- that they could move the ball.

It's just that they couldn't get it into the end zone or through the uprights until it was much too late.

FLORIDA STATE 21, ALABAMA 14

Florida State Defeats No. 22 Alabama 21-14.

Seminoles move to 3-1 after win in Jacksonville.

JACKSONVILLE, FL - There is no quarterback controversy at Florida State: Xavier Lee's the quarterback - at least until Monday.

The 6-4, 235-pound redshirt junior with a cannon arm came off the bench Saturday to throw a pair of touchdown passes to De'Cody Fagg and lead Florida State to a 21-14 victory over No.22 Alabama in a showdown between one-time powers looking to regain elite status.

"He gave them a spark," Alabama coach Nick Saban said. "His ability to run made us play different."

Bowden said the Lee he saw perform Saturday before the largest crowd to see a game in this city was the one he's been looking for since 2005.

"He gave us some mobility at quarterback and offensively he won the game," Bowden said. "He did what we've always wanted him to do. Xavier has always been a young man with great potential and I thought tonight he began to use that potential."

Lee, who entered the game in the second quarter, hit Fagg with a 7-yard pass for the game's first touchdown on the opening drive of the second half. The two then teamed up on a 70-yard TD pass with 4:46 left to give the Seminoles a 21-7 lead.

That play came immediately after Alabama scored its first touchdown.

Lee completed 12 of 19 passes for 224 yards after making his first appearance of the year and ran for a game-high 59 yards in what began as a defensive struggle for both teams. He replaced Drew Weatherford, who couldn't produce any first quarter points despite having good field position and a brisk wind at its back.

Bowden said offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher would make the decision on a starter for next week's game against North Carolina State.

"If he doesn't make the right one (decision), I'll correct him," Bowden teased.

Fisher, however, sounded like he was leaning to sticking with Lee.

"I'd say right now, 'you'd think so,"' Fisher said. "(But) we don't want to make any rash decisions after a game."

Weatherford, who is also a redshirt junior, has started 27 games and Lee just three since they began their careers together. Despite continual speculation that Lee would transfer, he didn't.

"No athlete likes to wait and sit around and wait for their chance but patience pays off and patience is a virtue," Lee said.

"He showed some persistence there," Bowden said. "I betcha it's gonna pay dividends for him."

Florida State (3-1) gave Bowden, who grew up in Birmingham, Ala., his 369th coaching win in his first game against Alabama. Bowden has three more coaching wins than Penn State's Joe Paterno.

"When it will be emotional is when I go home this summer up to Birmingham and we go out to Roebuck (golf course) and we tee that thing up on the first tee box and I say 'We whipped y'all,"' Bowden said.

Antone Smith scored on a 5-yard run to give Florida State a 14-0 lead early in the fourth quarter.

Smith's touchdown, which came on a play after Letroy Guion recovered a fumble by Alabama's John Parker Wilson, gave Florida State a 14-0 lead with 9:03 left. Wilson lost the ball as he was being sacked by Florida State's Everette Brown.

Alabama (3-2) cut the lead to 14-7 with 5:04 left on DJ Hall's leaping grab in the back of the end zone on a pass from Wilson, who added a 17-yard TD pass to Keith Brown with 1:06 left.

Wilson completed 28 of 53 passes for 240 yards with Hall catching seven for 83 yards. Alabama's leading rusher, Terry Grant, was held to just 36 of the team's 89 rushing yards.

"The only thing that we had was underneath," said Wilson, who was sacked three times and had little time to throw deep.

Alabama had 78 total yards and three first downs in a scoreless first half while Florida State was only marginally better with five first downs and 89 total yards.

Saban said the Seminoles' defense was one of the best he's seen over the years.

"I've been part of some great defensive teams as a coach and I've played against quite a few and they're up there with the best of them," Saban said.

No players benefited more from Lee's presence that Florida State's two tallest receivers, 6-foot-6 Greg Carr and 6-3 Fagg, who caught nine passes for 202 yards between them. Carr had five catches for 107 yards and Fagg, who has been troubled with dropped passes for much of his career, had 95 yards on four catches.

It was Florida State's first victory in four tries against Alabama in the first meeting between the schools since 1974 when Alabama won 8-7 by scoring a safety and field goal in the final 1:27.

The 85,412 fans at Saturday's game was the most to see a game in Jacksonville, exceeding attendance at the 2004 Super Bowl game or any of the annual Georgia-Florida rivalry games.

FLORIDA STATE 27, NORTH CAROLINA STATE 10

Seminoles Finish Strong, Top N.C. State 27-10.

Xavier Lee, making his first start of the season hit 16 of 28 passes for 257 yards.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Michael Ray Garvin's 43-yard interception return for a touchdown snapped a halftime tie and sparked Florida State to a 27-10 win Saturday over North Carolina State for its fourth straight win.

A track All American who finished sixth in the 100 meters at the NCAA finals and ran a leg on Florida State's championship 400-meter relay team, Garvin gave Florida State a 17-10 lead early in the third quarter with his first interception of the season.

Daniel Evans, who threw three TD passes in N.C. State's 24-20 victory last year over the Seminoles, was intercepted three times Saturday -- once at the end of the half that killed a Wolfpack drive that had reached Florida State's 26.

Xavier Lee, making his first start of the season at quarterback, ran 2 yards for the Seminoles first touchdown 2:11 into the game, three plays after a 58-yard pass to Greg Carr on the game's first play. Carr later caught a 40-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter to give the Seminoles a 24-10 lead.

While the 6-6 Carr caught 4 passes for 140 yards.

The Seminoles (4-1,1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) snapped a string of eight straight losses against Atlantic Division rivals while N.C. State has now lost a dozen straight game against Bowl Subdivision (formerly 1-A) schools.

Although N.C. State (1-5, 0-3 ACC) led 10-7 in the first quarter, it was again plagued by four turnovers -- boosting its number to 21 in coach Tom O'Brien's first year at the school.

It was Florida State coach Bobby Bowden's 370th career coaching win, the most in major college football.

It was an emotional game for Seminole assistant coach Chuck Amato, who returned to Bowden's side earlier this year after he was fired by his N.C. State alma mater last November following seven seasons as head coach.

One of the players Amato recruited, sophomore running back Jamelle Eugene, ran for 101 yards on 14 carries and caught 5 passes for another 30 yards to lead the Wolfpack offense.

The game was delayed late in the third quarter for 49 minutes because of a lightning threat. Florida State led 17-10 when the players were removed from the field.

ACC sideline official, Ernest Benson, fainted on the sideline in the second quarter and was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for dehydration and released.

Seminoles Lose Battle with Deamon Deacons, 24-21.

Lee scores with 17 seconds remaining but Wake Forest claims win.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Riley Skinner threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Kenneth Moore in the fourth quarter to lead Wake Forest past No. 21 Florida State 24-21 on Thursday night.

Skinner completed 19 of 27 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns for the Demon Deacons (4-2, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who rallied in the second half to beat the Seminoles (4-2, 1-2).

Skinner led the Demon Deacons 82 yards in nine plays, converting three third downs during their game-winning drive. The biggest came when Skinner sidestepped a pass rush, stepped forward in the pocket and found Moore, who had a step on cornerback Jamie Robinson at the goal line, for the easy score that put Wake Forest up 21-14 with 6:41 remaining.

Florida State gave the ball right back to Wake Forest on the first play of its ensuing drive, when Chip Vaughn intercepted Xavier Lee's deep pass at the 26. The Demon Deacons milked the clock and set up Sam Swank's 48-yard field goal with 1:40 to play that made it a 10-point game.

Lee scored on a 17-yard run with 17 seconds left to draw the Seminoles within 24-21, but Wake Forest recovered an onside kick to seal it.

Josh Adams rushed 18 times for 140 yards, including an 83-yard touchdown run, and caught a scoring pass. Micah Andrews ran hard as his relief, gaining 57 tough yards in helping spark the comeback.

Wake Forest's defense in the first half allowed two big plays that set up the Seminoles' two scoring drives, then shut them down after halftime. The Demon Deacons forced five second-half punts, intercepted two passes and allowed 105 total yards after the break - with a good chunk coming after Swank's late kick. Florida State's rushing offense never could get going, finishing with 47 yards on 24 carries.

Lee finished 24-of-45 for 283 yards and two touchdowns for the Seminoles, who led 14-7 at halftime.

Wake Forest moved 80 yards in nine plays late in the third quarter to force a 14-14 tie - a drive that started when Alphonso Smith intercepted Lee in the end zone. Skinner capped the drive with a nifty play in which he faked a handoff to Adams, deked like he would roll right and instead reversed field and flipped to the wide-open tailback for a 6-yard score.

Florida State rallied from an early deficit by using two big plays to set up short touchdowns passes. Lee hit Parker for 58 yards and then hooked up again three plays later from 6 yards out - the first TD of the receiver's career - that snapped a five-quarter scoreless streak against Wake Forest.

Later, Carr outjumped Smith on a 50-yard gain down the right sideline, then did it again in the left corner of the end zone to make it 14-7 43 seconds before halftime.

Adams had given Wake Forest a 7-0 lead midway through the second quarter when he took a handoff at his own 17, stutter-stepped through the line and burst down the right sideline for the fourth-longest touchdown run in school history and the longest run allowed by Florida State in more than a decade.

Miami Edges FSU In Rivalry Game.

Gary Cismesia kicked five field goals for the Seminoles.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Colin McCarthy returned a fumble 27 yards for Miami's second touchdown in 11 seconds late in the fourth quarter and the Hurricanes beat Florida State 37-29 Saturday.

For the first time since 1977, the rivalry game that helped decide so many national titles during the 1980s and 90s was played with neither team ranked. Fittingly, the Seminoles and 'Canes combined for nine turnovers, five by FSU.

Minutes before Miami's two quick touchdowns, the Hurricanes (5-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) appeared to have lost their best chance to get the win when Kirby Freeman was stopped for no gain on a fourth-and-1 at the Florida State 1 with 5:29 left and the 'Canes trailing 29-24.

But Freeman, who replaced injured Kyle Wright in the first half, drove Miami 83 yards in a 1 1/2 minutes to take the lead 30-29 on a 13-yard pass to Dedrick Epps with 1:15 left.

Xavier Lee, who was intercepted twice, then fumbled after being hit by Miami's Teraz McCray, and McCarthy ran it in for the clincher.

Lee threw two interceptions and lost two fumbles for Florida State (4-3, 1-3). He completed 14 of 32 passes for 208 yards in his third start this season.

The Seminoles wasted five field goals by Gary Cismesia and Antone Smith's first 100-yard game of the season. Smith finished with 114 yards on 22 carries.

Cismesia's fourth field goal, from 45 yards, gave Florida State a 26-24 lead late in the third quarter of the back-and-forth contest and he added another from the same distance early in the fourth quarter for the 29-24 lead.

The Hurricanes had grabbed a 24-23 lead on a trick play midway through the third quarter when place-kicker Francesco Zampogna took an over-the-shoulder toss from his holder and found tight end DajLeon Farr on a 26-yard scoring pass.

Wright, who hurt his left ankle, was 6 of 10 for 88 yards, but threw an interception that put Florida State into a 17-14 lead.

Toddrick Verdell's 45-yard touchdown run was followed by a Cismesia field goal that put the Seminoles ahead 20-17 at halftime.

Miami also scored two quick touchdowns in the first quarter to grab an early 14-3 lead.

The Hurricanes went ahead 7-3 lead on Wright's 1-yard run on a scoring drive highlighted by Wright's 64-yard third down pass to Darnell Jenkins.

Greg Cooper then added a 2-yard TD run set up by a fumble by Florida State's Smith.

Florida State coach Bobby Bowden, who has 370 career coaching wins, is now just one ahead of Penn State's Joe Paterno.

FSU Defeats Duke, 25-6.

Parker scored his second TD late in the third quarter on a 14-yard run to make the score 22-0.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Preston Parker caught a touchdown pass and scored on an end around Saturday to help Florida State end a two-game losing streak with a 25-6 victory over Duke, handing the Blue Devils' their 22nd straight Atlantic Coast Conference loss.

After going more than five quarters without an offensive touchdown, the Seminoles made it to the end zone six minutes into the third quarter when Parker raced 9 yards with a short sideline pass from Drew Weatherford, giving Florida State a 16-0 lead.

Florida State, which plays next Saturday at undefeated Boston College, led 9-0 at halftime on three field goals by Gary Cismesia.

Parker scored his second TD late in the third quarter on a 14-yard run to make the score 22-0.

After Cismesia kicked his fourth field goal, Duke (1-7, 0-5 ACC) avoided a shutout when Thaddeus Lewis lofted a 3-yard pass to a wide-open Brandon King in the right front corner of the end zone with 8:07 left.

Florida State (5-3, 2-3 ACC) rolled up a season-high 534 yards and 30 first downs while holding Duke to 222 yards and 9 first downs. The Blue Devils managed only 49 yards and two first downs in the first half.

The win was Bobby Bowden's 371st coaching victory and gave him a two-game cushion over Penn State's Joe Paterno, whose team lost Saturday to Ohio State.

Weatherford, making his first start in four games after being benched in favor of Xavier Lee, completed 35 of 47 for 339 yards despite not having junior wide receiver Greg Carr, who missed the game with a wrist injury.

Carr, who has 24 career touchdown catches, had caught six TD catches in two previous games against the Blue Devils.

But De'Cody Fagg took up the slack with 9 catches for 134 yards and Richard Goodman had 11 catches for 73 yards, but injured his right ankle late in the fourth quarter.

Parker had 8 catches for 89 yards and Antone Smith tacked on 146 yards on 23 carries, but was also knocked out of the contest late with a left ankle sprain.

Florida State's Patrick Robinson had an interception for the fourth straight game.

Geno Hayes returned Matt Ryan's third interception for a 38-yard touchdown with 1:10 to play on Saturday night to help Florida State beat second-ranked Boston College 27-17, ending the Eagles' run at an unbeaten season and shaking up the BCS standings yet again.

With the loss by BC (8-1, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), only Ohio State, Kansas and Hawaii remain unbeaten. A handful of one-loss teams - LSU, Oregon and Oklahoma among them - had their hopes for reaching the Bowl Championship Series title game aided by Florida State. LSU will probably take second-place behind Ohio State in the BCS standings when they come out Sunday.

"This does not deter us from what we want to do," BC coach Jeff Jagodzinski said, "and that's win the ACC championship."

The No. 2 team in The Associated Press Top 25 lost three consecutive weeks before Boston College took over the second spot on Oct. 21 and held on with a comeback victory over Virginia Tech last week. Southern California, California and South Florida were the others to lose as No. 2.

Drew Weatherford completed 29-of-45 passes for 354 yards for Florida State (6-3, 3-3), hitting Preston Parker nine times for 93 yards and a touchdown and De'Cody Fagg on six catches for 111 yards and a TD.

Ryan finished 25-for-53 for two touchdowns and 415 yards - his fourth career 400-yard game, tying Doug Flutie for the most in school history.

But his interceptions were costly.

"One of the things you can't do, I don't care what level you're on, you can't turn the ball over," Jagodzinski said. "We had four."

Ryan was picked off once in the first quarter inside the Seminoles 10. He also threw an interception early in the third that allowed Florida State to move into position for a 40-yard field goal that made it 10-0.

It was the second consecutive game BC trailed 10-0 before mounting a rally: The Eagles spotted Virginia Tech a two-score lead on Oct. 25 before Ryan threw two touchdown passes in the final 2:11 to vault himself into the Heisman Trophy conversation.

This time, he had more than 20 minutes to work with.

"You can never count out Matt Ryan and BC," Weatherford said. "I was nervous the whole time. He's a great player, he's led his team back before and I knew he could do it again. I was nervous until the final play."

Ryan led BC on a four-play, 70-yard drive over 63 seconds, hitting Ryan Purvis for 26 yards to the Florida State 30, and then Brandon Robinson for the touchdown. The teams traded field goals, then Weatherford hit Fagg on a 42-yard touchdown pass to give the Seminoles a 20-10 lead.

Ryan hit Rich Gunnell on a 42-yard pass to the Florida State 6 with 7:24 left. Two plays later, including a penalty that moved the ball to the 3, Ryan hit a wide-open Purvis in the middle of the end zone to make it 20-17.

BC forced a punt and got the ball back at its own 7 with 3:30 left and a chance to take the lead.

"I was excited," Ryan said. "As soon as they stopped them, and forced the punt, they gave us another chance to go out there and win the game."

Ryan moved the Eagles out to the 33 before Hayes ripped the ball free from Purvis on a pass across the middle and went easily into the end zone.

"This is the fourth game that we've been ahead at the half and we've lost two of them," Seminoles coach Bobby Bowden said. "I thought we were going to make enough mistakes to lose it at the end."

The game began in a frigid and soaking downpour, with wind gusts forecast at up to 50 mph as the remnants of Hurricane Noel proceeded up the East Coast. The rain had stopped by the end of the first quarter, but the winds battered the U.S. flag and played havoc with a couple of second-quarter field goal attempts.

"Everybody believed, until the very end, that we could pull it out at the end, after what Matt did last week," BC linebacker Mark Herzlich said. "Hayes made a great play and sealed the deal."

Robinson caught seven passes for 163 yards for BC, fighting off a grabby defender to make a beautiful diving catch for 38 yards to the Seminoles 6 midway through the fourth quarter. But the Eagles, trailing 13-7 at the time moved backward on penalties and managed only a field goal.

Weatherford answered with a two-play, 61-yard drive that took just 41 seconds before Fagg ran 42 yards into the end zone to make it 20-10.

Florida State Falls To No. 11 Virginia Tech.

Seminoles lead 21-20 entering the final quarter, but lose 40-21.

BLACKSBURG, VA - Tyrod Taylor and Virginia Tech didn't make coach Frank Beamer suffer through another disheartening loss to Florida State, but the No. 11 Hokies sure made their coach and fans sweat it out until late Saturday.

Taylor returned from a sprained ankle that kept him out 2 1/2 games and threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, lifting the Hokies to a 40-21 victory. It was the first win for Beamer in eight tries against Florida State, and marked the first time Seminoles coach Bobby Bowden has lost to Virginia Tech in 16 career meetings.

The Hokies (8-2, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) blew a 14-point halftime lead and trailed 21-20 entering the final quarter, but Taylor drove them to his go-ahead 3-yard scoring run, and three late Seminoles turnovers made a close game turn lopsided.

The end came with fans that had fallen silent in the third quarter celebrating wildly as the Hokies poured it on, as if one victory could erase two painful recent losses. In 1999, the Seminoles beat the Michael Vick-led Hokies in the Sugar Bowl national championship game, 46-29, and then two years ago, the heavily favored Hokies collapsed under a barrage of penalties and lost 27-22 in the first ACC title game.

But this time, with Taylor throwing for 204 yards and running for 92 more, and Justin Harper catching five passes for 167 yards, and the the defense rising in the end, the Hokies stayed on course for a chance to return to the ACC title game.

They have two games left - at home against Miami, and at Virginia.

The Seminoles (6-4, 3-4), who seemed to be catching their stride last week when they beat No. 8 Boston College, lost quarterback Drew Weatherford to injury before halftime and failed to get the 78-year-old Bowden his 300th victory at the school.

Seminoles Post 24-16 Home Victory Over Terrapins.

Florida State (7-4, 4-4 ACC) clinched a 31st consecutive winning season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Bobby Bowden won his 300th game at Florida State, getting 133 yards rushing and a touchdown from Preston Parker in a 24-16 victory against Maryland on Saturday.

Bowden, who has 373 career coaching wins, is assured of keeping his lead over Penn State's Joe Paterno for at least one more week in their long-running competition for the most wins in major college history.

Florida State (7-4, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) clinched a 31st consecutive winning season, while Maryland (5-6, 2-5 ACC) needs a win at North Carolina State next week just to become bowl eligible.

Parker, who had been the Seminoles' leading receiver, made his first start at tailback and ran for 51 yards on his first four carries, including an 18-yard TD that gave the Seminoles a 14-3 lead late in the first quarter. He was moved to running back this week after Antone Smith was lost to a shoulder injury in last week's loss at Virginia Tech.

Drew Weatherford bounced back from a concussion that knocked him out of last week's game to throw for 204 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for another.

Florida State took a 21-3 lead 44 seconds into the second quarter when Weatherford and De'Cody Fagg hooked up on a 10-yard touchdown pass.

The Seminoles led 21-6 at the half with Maryland's points coming on a pair of field goals by Obi Egekeze, who added a third in the fourth quarter to complete the scoring.

Maryland made it interesting in the second half, pulling to within 21-13 midway through the third quarter when Darrius Heyward-Bey scored on a 14-yard pass from Chris Turner.

Turner completed 16 of 32 passes for 242 yards, but threw a costly interception and was sacked four times.

Patrick Robinson's sixth interception of the season set up the game's initial score, a 1-yard run on fourth down by Weatherford.

Parker, a 6-foot, 190-pound sophomore from Delray Beach, carried the ball 20 times, caught a pass for 21 yards and returned four punts for 40 more yards.

No. 12 Florida Tops Rival Florida St.

The Seminoles finish the regluar season 7-5 overall.

GAINESVILLE, FL - Tim Tebow threw three touchdown passes, ran for two scores and carried the 12th-ranked Gators to a 45-12 victory over the Seminoles on Saturday night.

Tebow led the Gators (9-3) to touchdowns on four of their first five possessions, staking them to big lead that eased the pressure on Florida's young defense that has struggled much of the year.

Percy Harvin did his part, too. After missing the last two games because of migraine headaches, Harvin returned and ran 16 times for 157 yards. He scored on a 24-yard run with 3 minutes to play.

Tebow and Harvin burned the Seminoles (7-5) all over the field, helping extend Florida's dominance in the series.

The Gators have won four in a row, the longest streak since winning their sixth straight in 1986.

With Tebow and Harvin on board for at least another year, Florida State's outlook for ending the streak doesn't look so promising.

Tebow finished 19-of-28 for 262 yards. The sophomore also carried 13 times for 89 yards.

Tebow ran around and over defenders all game, and stirred the crowd into a frenzy after every big play.

He had most of the 90,664 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium chanting "Tebow, Heisman" with 5:37 to play.

Maybe Geno Hayes should have joined in. Florida State's junior linebacker said early in the week that Tebow was "going down" Saturday.

Hayes was right, sort of.

Tebow went down the field and down in history.

His second rushing touchdown gave him 22 for the season, tying the NCAA record for a quarterback. Chance Harridge of Air Force also had 22 in 2002.

Entertaining Music City Bowl Won By Kentucky.

Seminoles Edged 35-28 in Nashville.

NASHVILLE, TN - Andre Woodson threw four TD paases against Florida State and Kentucky won its second straight Music City Bowl, beating the Seminoles 35-28 on Monday for Bobby Bowden's first bowl loss in December.

Kentucky hadn't ended back-to-back seasons with bowl wins since 1951-52, but the Wildcats pulled off the feat in Nashville one year after surprising Clemson, coached by Bowden's son, Tommy.

As for the elder Bowden, who has led the Seminoles to 26 straight bowls and two national titles, his December bowl record finally has its first blemish at 7-1-1. Bowden is major college football's winningest coach with 373 victories -- one ahead of Penn State's Joe Paterno.

Woodson capitalized on the missing depth and finished the season with 40 touchdown passes, breaking Tim Couch's school-record 37 set in 1998. It was the 19th consecutive game with at least 200 passing yards and a scoring pass for Woodson, a senior who figures to be among the first quarterbacks taken in the NFL draft.

The Wildcats took the lead for good midway through the third quarter on Woodson's 2-yard slant to Rafael Little, who 126 yards on 26 carries. It was the 13th 100-yard rushing game for the senior running back, tying him for second on Kentucky's career list.

Florida State quarterback Drew Weatherford pulled the Seminoles to 28-21 with 8 minutes left on a 1-yard bootleg run -- his first career game with two rushing TDs.

Woodson immediately answered, dumping off a short pass that Steve Johnson took for 38 yards for his second TD reception. Johnson led all receivers with 126 yards.

Weatherford would add a TD pass to Greg Carr with just over 2 minutes remaining, and Florida State got the ball back at the 1-minute mark behind by one score.

Linebacker Micah Johnson appeared to come up with a game-icing interception, but a fumble gave the Seminoles another chance. Weatherford's last-second pass fell incomplete in the end zone.
