Florida St. year 2 game recaps Florida St. @ Miami When you think of these two teams meeting you probably think of words like epic, classic, or even legendary. Well this game definately fits the bill. Miami started off the scoring with a FG to lead 3-0 after one quarter. FSU finished their next drive with a FG as well to tie the score at 3's. Miami answered back with another FG drive to go up 6-3. Guess what FSU decided to do? You guessed it, 52 yard FG and we were knotted up 6-6 at the half. 2nd half ---------------------------------------------------- Let me start by saying the second half would be nearly an exact replica of the first. Defense, defense, defense, and defense by both squads. By the end of the 3rd FSU had kicked their 3rd FG of the game and led 9-6. Again Miami would answer back with a FG at the 3minute mark of the 4th quarter. FSU had a 3rd & long with a little over a minute left in the game. Emerging number one target Avis Commack ran a corner pattern that Ponder had to float up in an attempt to beat a blitzing Hurricane defense. He hauled it in to keep the drive moving. Miami appeared to be reeling with the clock and field position starting to work against them. Jermaine Thomas, star running back was hurt in the first half for a week opening the door for Tavares Pressley who broke a key 18 yard run to put FSU in game winning FG territory. Luckily for the Seminoles they wouldn't need it as they kept chipping away and eventually punched the ball in the endzone for the only TD of the game. Albeit the game winner! FSU sat back as there was only about :30 secs left for Miami and wound up with an interception to seal the deal.

JCA great game man. That was a really tough struggle for both of us as I'm sure you would agree.
