  • Miami vs. Florida State LIVE SCORE UPDATES (10/7/17) | College football

And those numbers account for the game's final offensive flurry, when Blackman found his favorite target Auden Tate from 20 yards out with 1:24 to go for the go-ahead score and Rosier responded with a 75-yard drive of his own to retake the lead, threading a ideal back-shoulder pass to Darrell Langham for a 23-yard touchdown with six seconds left.

Rosier, who came into the game leading the Atlantic Coast Conference in passing efficiency, had a rough start as he completed only four of his first 16 passes.

Maybe Coach Jimbo Fisher doesn't fully trust his freshman QB?

"They're a good team and so are we, and they just made one more big play than we did, so we have to find a way to do that going forward".

It was a game that the Seminoles had a clear advantage of in terms of stats like yards gained, first downs and turnovers committed.

Finally, for Miami, the wait was over.

EUGENE, Ore. - Luke Falk threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns and No. 11 Washington State held OR scoreless after the first quarter for a victory Saturday night.

Still he finished with a line of six innings pitched and allowing five hits (four home runs), three walks and seven strikeouts. After a Cody Bellinger single, Yasiel Puig lined a double into center field to give Los Angeles a 4-0 advantage.

On first offensive play of the second half for FSU, highly scrutinized UM cornerback Dee Delaney intercepts Blackman.

He caught Miami's first touchdown of the game, a 21-yard grab in the third quarter, which came after a 44-yard punt return.

Both defenses were unable to stop each other during a wild-and-wacky fourth period that saw the teams combine for 31 points, 18 more than the first three quarters. This time it was to Darrell Langham- who has three career receptions and only this lone touchdown in his career.

Florida State freshman quarterback James Blackman played better in the second half as well. Final score Miami Hurricanes 24, Florida State Seminoles 20. Blackman hit Ryan Izzo for a touchdown then led a field goal drive to put the Seminoles up 13-10. Ricky Aguayo gave Florida State the lead with a 38-yard field goal, but Miami took a 17-13 advantage on Rosier's 7-yard pass to Braxton Berrios. "They're pounding that ball up in there", Fisher said. They played without starting quarterback Brandon Wimbush due to a right foot injury. "We've just got to keep our heads up and move forward". Coming into the season, he had a grand total of 5 career touchdowns. "Our receivers were killing them on routes", said Rosier, who was 19 of 44 for 254 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.

He delivered, finding his receivers in tight situations and driving down the field into the Hurricanes' red-zone, where he eventually found a wide-open Auden Tate for a 20-yard touchdown pass that sent the garnet and gold faithful into a craze. Cam Akers had his first 100-yard rushing game with 129 yards on 14 carries.

ABOUT FLORIDA STATE (1-2, 1-1): The Seminoles defense has been inconsistent but it has the ability to shut down Miami and may need to do so as the team can't afford to get into a shootout with the Hurricanes. We're either going 0-4 against them, or we're flipping that page. Early in the season, it was easy to imagine these two teams meeting in the ACC title game; that's all but out of the question for Florida State now, while Miami faces a doable schedule until a November 4 meeting with Virginia Tech that could decide the Coastal Division.
