No.13 Miami Ends FSU's Run With GW Touchdown: The Takeaway

No.13 Miami Ends FSU's Run With GW Touchdown: The Takeaway

Then came Malik Rosier to Darrell Langham, writing another epic ending into a library full of them in this heated and storied rivalry.

In a rivalry that so many times has come down to one kick, No. 13 Miami instead broke a seven-game losing streak to in-state rival Florida State in a 24-20 victory on Saturday with one ideal back-shoulder throw.

"I told the guys that we had plenty of time for us to go score".

He needed it. Rosier hadn't been sharp all day; his stat line finishes at 19-44 for 254 yards and three touchdowns and an interception.

Coming into Saturday's game between 13-ranked Miami and Florida State, both teams were looking to get their running games going.

Rosier though found Langham in single coverage up the right sideline and he beat Tarvarus McFadden.

Langham might have been down before the ball broke the goal line.

"The last play was simply a four verticals play". Some wondered if Miami had better options at returner, though UM's coaches always said they were riding with him. "We always take one-high man and throw it to the short side".

"We'll coach them better ... blame it on me", Fisher said after the game.

The Hurricanes beat the Seminoles for the first time since 2009 and improve to 4-0 on the season.

It is the first time since 1974 that the Seminoles have dropped their first two home games of a season. The Tigers required only five plays and 67 seconds to 75 yards for the winning touchdown.

We're all for sportsmanship, but this is one case where it is hard to blame the players for having some fun after taking down a rival. "We've got to find a way to do that".

Despite two interceptions, Blackman showed some poise while frequently under fire from the Miami pass rush. Cam Akers had his first 100-yard rushing game with 129 yards on 14 carries.

The loss marked Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher's first defeat against Miami since he took over the program in 2010. He said that he tries not to focus on the past, but did have some flashbacks to his time at FSU on the drive into the stadium. FSU ran only 11 plays in the third period, which ended with Miami up 10-3.

Florida State up 3-0 on Miami at halftime. Florida State has faced a far more rigorous slate, but the team is struggling with freshman quarterback James Blackman at the helm after Deondre Francois went down in the opener, resulting in the team's inability to put points on the board as they are averaging just 18 points per game, far less than the 35.1 they averaged a year ago. It bounced back to win five in a row to the end the season, setting the stage for a 2017 season in which it hoped to make its first ACC title game appearance.

The Rebels (2-3, 0-2) endured their second straight blowout in the state a week after losing 66-3 to No. 1 Alabama.

The Miami Hurricanes not only defeated the Florida State Seminoles on Saturday, but chose to bring back some of that "The U" swag when it was all said and done.

While many critics will bash this squad after such an underwhelming start, it's important to remember that this team going through a transition period with a new quarterback and learning how to replace the loss of talented offensive players like Dalvin Cook and Travis Rudolph.
