For the fourth time this season, the Florida State Seminoles looked like they were facing defeat right in the face. This time, at the hands of Louisville, FSU looked like they would encounter the same fate that several other top-5 teams have faced on Thursday night games over the years; losing a game that they shouldn’t have and being knocked out of the championship picture late in the season. But in Florida State/Jamie Winston fashion, the Seminoles once again managed to pull off a hellacious comeback as they went on to win their 24th game in a row. With Louisville being the last major roadblock in the way of FSU, it’s looking like the Seminoles are well on their way to appearing in the inaugural College Football Playoff.
Here are the results from that game, and the rest of the action from week 10 in the ACC:
• Florida State went down by 21 points in the first half. It looked like the Seminoles weren’t going to get the chance to ultimately defend their national title, but once again, Jameis Winston pulled this team up by its bootstraps and led them to another thrilling victory. Now Winston was a part of the reason why the Seminoles went down in the first place, as he threw three costly interceptions, but Winston and company have made a habit of pulling off big comebacks this season despite the circumstances. The Seminoles also got a big game out of running back Dalvin Cook, who ran for over 100 yards and two touchdowns.
FSU’s remaining schedule includes Virginia, Miami, Boston College and Florida. In all likelihood, they will be heavy favorites in each of those games, including their rivalry matchups with Miami and Florida. As long as they win those games and the ACC championship, they should be in the College Football Playoff come January.
