In fact, Florida State’s most recent comeback for its 24th consecutive win might have saved its season.
Thursday night’s game against Louisville found the Seminoles in a 21-0 hole in the first half. But in typical Florida State fashion, the losing didn’t last long.
The Seminoles and quarterback Jameis Winston stumbled (literally, on one good ankle) and bumbled their way to a 42-31 victory over the Cardinals at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
Florida State began its comeback just before the half, when the reigning Heisman Trophy winner led the team 78 yards on a drive that culminated in a Nick O’Leary touchdown when Karlos Williams fumbled in the end zone.
Winston then took charge in the second half throwing for three touchdowns to lead the rally.
The undefeated team arrived in Kentucky earlier in the week, giving them some time to find a makeshift practice field.
In case you missed it, the Seminoles took their game preparation to the Waterfront Park in Louisville, but they had to pass a certain attraction to get to the field.
Head coach Will Muschamp gave Harris a chance to turn the game around Oct. 4, when the Gators were trailing Tennessee in the third quarter. His pair of scoring drives in the fourth did just that, leading the team to a 10-9 victory over the Volunteers, their lone win in their past four games.
— The Tampa Bay Rays announced bench coach Dave Martinez, pitching coach Jim Hickey and hitting coach Derek Shelton will all be returning to the team for the 2015 season. The replacement for former manager Joe Maddon is still undecided.
