So this is how it feels, huh?
This is how it feels when the air leaves your body? This is what it’s like when you block a kick? This is what’s it’s like to walk off with a narrow victory?
If nothing else defines FSU–Miami, missed kicks at the end do. Staring at overtime, FSU’s Demarcus Walker blocked an extra point kick to preserve a 20-19 victory. Miami’s Michael Badgley had converted 72 consecutive extra points. It was the seventh straight season that FSU has beaten the Hurricanes, meaning that if Mark Richt is indeed going to bring the Hurricanes back, it will take another year before the Seminoles acknowledge it.
Miami had taken a 13-0 lead in the first half. But the Seminoles roared back in the second half to take the lead. FSU’s maligned defense, one of the worst in the country, played well. They held UM to only 62 yards rushing
The Hurricanes appeared to have the game tied with 98 seconds to play. On fourth-and-five, Brad Kaaya lofted a perfect pass to the end zone .
“It was Florida State-Miami,” said FSU coach Jimbo Fisher.
Dalvin Cook rushed for 159 yards for FSU. Derrick Nnadi had seven tackles, two and a half for loss and a sack.
FSU is home Saturday against Wake Forest. Miami is home against North Carolina.
