FSU football got its eighth win of the season by defeating Syracuse 45-14 Saturday. We check out the best photos from the historic game.

Cook later became the first running back in ACC history to surpass 4,000 rushing yards in only three seasons.

Let’s check out some of the great photos from the game.
