They won by 44 points.
They had a short week to get ready.
And still, FSU was a bit disappointed after its 52-8 victory over Charleston Southern Saturday. That says a great deal about the program and its expectations.
FSU jumped to a 35-6 halftime lead over an outmanned Charleston Southern team – which suspended 14 players — 10 starters — for the game.
Quarterback Deondre Francois hit 25 of 32 passes for 262 yards. Running back Dalvin Cook gained 83 yards on 11 carries. Receiver Travis Rudolph caught seven passes for 105 yards.
“We won a game,” coach Jimbo Fisher said. “We did what we were supposed to do. We still have a lot of work to do.
It was 49-6 after three quarters, but the Seminoles, weren’t especially sharp after that.
They will need to be next week. FSU travels to Louisville next Saturday. FSU may abe without star safety Derwin James, who left in the third period and did not return.
