    After routing Duke in week 3 to open the conference schedule, FSU had to face one of the toughest opponents in the ACC on the road in UNC. Both teams came out with their A-game on offense early and it was quickly 14-14. UNC took a 3pt lead into the half after Jameis Winston made a bad decision and threw a pick in the endzone with under 5 seconds to play in the half. FSU wasted another opportunity early in the second half when kicker, Robert Aguayo clanked one off of the right upright from about 35 yards out. However, the Seminole defense rose to the occasion and gave FSU's offense enough opportunities to win the game in the end.

    This is the type of game that we lost last season, so it felt good to pull-out a tough road win. Winston was efficient again, and had good control of the offense in key situations. The kid has amazing talent but in our offense that relies heavily on the run-game, he will rarely put up jaw-dropping numbers. Devonta Freeman was the workhorse on the road, totaling 163 yards and 1 TD on 32 carries. On the defensive side, Karlos Williams and Nigel Terrell were flying around all day making plays, each finishing with 7 tackles on the day. The defense only allowed 2.4 yards per carry and a total of 43 yards rushing by the Tarheels.

    Next week we will look to maintain our momentum against Wake Forest in Winston Salem, NC.

    Miami continues its road back to the National Championship

    Coach Bud Wiser led his Canes into Louisville to take on the #10 Cardinals and wanted to make a statement to the rest of the ACC. The statement was that losing key players doesn't effect good teams, they don't rebuild they reload. The Canes got off to a fast start in this one and did not look back and won the game 69-15.

    POTG: Ryan Williams 11/20 238 yds 3 tds.

    South Carolina 48, Mississippi State 35

    Fresh off the victory against #1 Georgia, the Gamecocks looked to avoid a letdown against the Mississippi State Bulldogs. MSU would win the toss and defer to the second half. Carolina would do nothing on their first drive and be forced to punt. The Bulldogs easily drove the field and took a 7-0 lead when QB Dak Prescott found TE Malcolm Johnson from 13 yards out. The Gamecocks would answer quickly, as just 27 seconds later, QB Dylan Thompson would hit WR Bruce Ellington on a curl route, The defender would miss on the tackle, and the end result was a 43 yard TD to tie the game up. The Bulldogs answered on their next drive, as Prescott would throw a 40 yard TD pass to HB Josh Robinson. Thompson would get a bit greedy on the next Carolina possession and throw an INT. The Bulldogs moved down the field quickly, and carried their possession into the second quarter.

    With 7:06 left in the second, Johnson caught his second TD pass of the game to put MSU up 21-7. Coach Turner was going off on the sidelines, and it must have lit some kind of spark. Carolina would score the next 24 points, with 21 of them courtesy of Shon Carson running the ball in. The last 3 would come as the half expired on a 44 yard Landon Ard FG. This would not have happened had it not been courtesy of a favorable (for Carolina, anyway) facemask call. Score at the break was 31-21, South Carolina.

    The third quarter would start with MSU receiving the ball. They drove the field, but a well-timed sack made it 3rd and 24. Playing a cover 3, the Gamecocks had everyone covered. Prescott threw one deep down the right sidelines, and only Carolina guys were there to make a play. Unfortunately for Gamecock fans, the play was to tip the ball up into the air so WR Joe Morrow could snag it for a 46 yard TD. It's now 31-28. Carolina would put together a coordinated drive, and backup HB Brandon Wilds would run it in fro 19 yards out to put Carolina up 10 again. Prescott would throw an interception on the next drive, and Carolina would add to the lead. With 2 seconds left in the 3rd, Thompson found TE Rory Anderson from 2 yards out. At the end of the 3rd, it was 45-28, Carolina.

    MSU would score quickly on their next drive, with Morrow catching his second TD, this time from 8 yards out. Carolina would chew the clock with the running game, and add 3 points to their score to make it 48-35. MSU was unable to score again, and Carolina took the ball over to seal the victory. Next up for Carolina is a bye week, followed by a visit from Kentucky where the Gamecocks look to avenge a loss from last year.

    Good game, Alabama fan34

    You going up 10 gave a good cushion on the lead

    I always feel more comfortable with a two score lead. Wasn't feeling good when you were up 21-7.
