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

Not only had Berrios played in the All-American game with the injury, he caught a touchdown pass. A long review in the ACC replay booth - one that didn't seem to offer conclusive proof - upheld Darrell Langham's 23-yard touchdown. The Miami Hurricanes are quietly sneaking up the AP rankings and look capable of challenging any team in the country after moving to 4-0 on Saturday afternoon.

After another brutal loss to the Noles past year, Miami lost three more games in a row.

The second half was a totally different story.

"He's just great, man".

Florida State Seminoles quarterback James Blackman (1) gets sacked during the first quarter of the Florida State Seminoles games against the Miami Hurricanes. "This was for all the guys (before us) that didn't win".

Head coach Jimbo Fisher was complimentary of both teams, congratulating the teams on a hard-fought game. It was more than just the third loss of the season for Florida State - it was a painful reminder of what this season is becoming.

With two made field goals against UM, Aguayo has now made 10 consecutive field goals dating back to the NC State game on September 23.

The Hurricanes struggled to run the football all game.

But with two leads, the 'Noles defense played passively, trying to keep plays in front of them.

Miami second-year head coach Mark Richt was going to enjoy this one. "They're pounding that ball up in there", Fisher said. Most coaches in the country would have played the same end of game scenario conservatively to send the game to overtime, but Richt took his chances on the road and allowed Malik Rosier one last downfield throw with under 10 seconds remaining. I'm very proud of them.

Witnesses also claim Damiao embraced some of the children which caused their bodies to burn. Some victims have been taken to hospitals in other cities with facilities to treat burns.

Three snaps later, Rosier and Richards teamed up for another big play.

Florida State clearly isn't the same team with starting quarterback Deondre Francois out due to injury but is still a tough matchup with All-American talent all over the field. Blackman finished 17-28 passing for 203 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Noles start the offense with the ball on their own 20-yard line.

Florida State tied it at 10-10 early in the fourth quarter when Ryan Izzo caught a 15-yard pass in the back of the end zone.

The Miami defense was led by safety Jaquan Johnson with 12 tackles, while fellow defensive backs Dee Delaney and Michael Jackson each recorded interceptions in the win. The former Hurricanes' player also spent some time at Florida State. On the ensuing possession, he converted a third-and-10 before being intercepted by Stanford Samuels III two plays later. Previous year had a blocked extra point with less than two minutes to play, and Saturday we saw back-to-back touchdown drives in crunch time from two quarterbacks with less than 10 combined career starts in a game that, to that point, was being dominated by the two defenses.

Miami came into the game underdogs per the S&P+. And he threw four incomplete passes on the game-winning drive.

"We made a couple of mistakes ... four or five plays determined the outcome of the game", said FSU linebacker Matthew Thomas. "I'm frustrated. We all get frustrated when we don't have success, but we line up and go again". "We were thinking turnover or negative plays".

NOTES: Saturday's attendance was 78,169. Everyone knows Richt will bring in terrific recruiting classes to Miami, and he's doing a far better job of coaching up the existing talent on the roster than predecessor Al Golden.

Florida State got back on the board with a touchdown and field goal in the third quarter, and Miami answered with another Rosier TD to Berrios with 5:09 left. Walker was able to attend the game because his National Football League team, the Denver Broncos, are on a bye this week.

Following the victory, a handful of Hurricanes players went to midfield and begin pretending to dig up the field at the midfield logo.

Florida State Seminoles running back Jacques Patrick (9) brought down after a gain of six in the first quarter of the game between the Florida State Seminoles and the Miami Hurricanes.
