No. 4 Florida State takes show on road

BY foxsports • September 28, 2012

Three years later, Florida State remembers and South Florida can't forget.

When the Seminoles and Bulls meet for only the second time Saturday, it once again will be a matchup of teams that appear to be headed in opposite directions.

USF was a relatively young program led by Jim Leavitt and looking to make a name for itself in 2009, when then redshirt freshman B.J. Daniels returned to his hometown of Tallahassee to lead a 17-7 upset in his first college start. FSU was ranked No. 18, but spiraling toward a 7-6 finish under Bobby Bowden.

Times have changed for both schools.

In addition to both having different coaches, the fourth-ranked Seminoles are on the rise, while the Bulls are trying re-establish themselves after a shaky start to the season.
