New, 1 comment

The Florida St. Seminoles laid waste to the Boston College Eagles on Saturday night at Doak Campbell Stadium, walking away with an impressive 51-7 victory.

Florida State was clicking on all cylinders from the start, showing why its the favorite to win the ACC crown. The No. 12 Seminoles were absolutely dominant, gaining 649 total yards including 201 on the ground.

E.J. Manuel was overwhelming throughout the contest, completing 27-of-34 passes for 439 yards and four touchdowns.

Kenny Shaw and Rodney Smith each went over 100 yards receiving, with 125 and 108 respectively. Shaw caught the first touchdown of the game on a 77-yard bomb that capped off a 99-yard drive taking under two minutes.

Boston College couldn't generate much of anything on either side. Chase Rettig was under pressure for most the night and could only complete 15-of-31 passes for 122 yards to accompany a touchdown and interception.

Andre Williams was the lone bright spot for the Eagles, rushing for 104 yards on 21 carries.
