Florida State Seminoles fans react in the stands after the game between the Florida State Seminoles and the Miami Hurricanes at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla. on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017.

For a brief period of time, it appeared that FSU's freshman quarterback James Blackman had again teamed with Auden Tate for a game-winning TD. FSU chooses to punt.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - J.T. Barrett threw for three touchdowns and ran for another in the first half, and Ohio State had its most dominant defensive effort in almost 60 years. Inside their own 5-yard line, Canes go three-and-out. Rosier answered with another touchdown to Berrios in the back of the end zone. On the second half's opening drive, Rosier completed a 32-yard pass on third-and-20 to set up a field goal. Homer led the way with 29 yards on three carries. It would have been a touchdown.

"We had some opportunities in the first half on offense", said FSU coach Jimbo Fisher.

Noles hit 27-yard field goal to put the first points on the board.

Hurricanes can't get any type of rhythm. Lowered his shoulder and knocked Redwine over while going out of bounds. He threw a 16-yard pass to Madre London to put the Spartans up 14-3 midway through the second quarter. And both of those third down throws were to Berrios. He is feeling the pressure early.

Storms moved in with 4 seconds left in the third quarter and the game was called after a one-hour delay with more rain on the way. The Hurricanes' defensive line was active, with ends Joe Jackson and Demetrius Jackson, as well as tackle Kendrick Norton, each picking up a sack.

The fourth-quarter fold by the defensive ruined what had been a strong effort, especially in the first half. He's emerged this season as Rosier's favorite target.

Miami second-year head coach Mark Richt was going to enjoy this one. The pair hooked up for a 20-yard score with only 1:24 left to give the Seminoles their final lead at 20-17. Is it obvious they are struggling? The junior found Langham in single coverage up the right sideline and he beat Tarvarus McFadden.

Miami has left too many FSU receivers wide open. Adam Choice added a rushing TD and Cannon Smith added a 13-yard touchdown catch from third-string passer Hunter Johnson. Hurricanes have also let Akers and Patrick run for multiple rushes without initial contact.

Malik Rosier didn't leave it to the kicker this time.

Becker, who contributed on defense and special teams previous year as FSU's secondary depth dwindled, finished Saturday's game with two solo tackles.

Rosier trying to use his legs - Noles pressure just too much.

Erik Powell contributed to the victory with field goals from 25, 52, 47 and 29 yards.

Florida State up 3-0 on Miami at halftime. "But you play good teams, that happens". The victor came on a 6-yard lob from Rosier to Berrios with 5:09 left. That is what the UM vs. FSU rivalry is all about - physicality. Hence, Rosier looking for 'Canes receiver Braxton Berrios. They each got a turn with the turnover chain.

What would the Canes do without Ahmmon Richards?

This year, with Richards battling a sore hamstring, he has 18 catches for 282 yards and five touchdowns. Seminoles defensive back Kyle Meyers was the team's leading tackler with six stops, while defensive back Stanford Samuels picked off Rosier for his first career interception.

FSU's defense stays strong even when it looked like Miami was gaining the momentum. Coming into the game, the Seminoles offense had accumulated 293 yards through three games.

He now has a touchdown catch in each of his first four games this season.

MI scored its first and only touchdown midway through the third quarter on Khalid Hill's 1-yard run to cut it to 14-10. "We just needed to make one more play than we did".

Berrios scored two touchdowns on the day, hauling in nine passes for 80 yards. Miami had been held scoreless in the first half, not running a single play in FSU territory. The team is off to its best start since winning seven to start the 2001 season.

The Aggies (4-2, 2-1 Southeastern Conference), who entered the game as 26 1/2 point underdogs, made the game interesting, but in the end freshman quarterback Kellen Mond was simply too inexperienced to help them topple a team as talented as Alabama. Berrios scores his second touchdown of the game on a 6-yard catch. Blackman finished 17-28 passing for 203 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Noles go back up 20-17.
