Florida State Stoped Asking The 'Noles To #DoSomething In A Blowout

The Orange snapped a 10-game losing streak to the Seminoles.

Syracuse held just a six-point lead heading into halftime, but the Orange scored touchdowns on back-to-back drives in the third quarter and then added a field goal to push its advantage to 23-0.

Dungey was hurt late in the second quarter after a late hit to the helmet and never returned as the Orange took a slim 6-0 lead into the break.

Florida State went 70 yards in eight plays and were almost stopped inside the 'Cuse five yardline, but a pass interference call at the front of the end zone off a dropped pass on fourth down gave the Noles a fresh set of downs, and Francois finished the drive with his legs to make it 23-7.

DeVito, who finished 11 of 16 for 144 yards and no turnovers, gave the Orange a commanding 20-0 lead with his toss to Pierce with 3:33 left in the third. But time expired with the Seminoles inside the red zone and the second half was a bust. FSU finished with just 62 yards rushing.

Florida State has had a horrendous start in Taggart's first year at the helm.

It wasn't much better in the second half, as the Seminoles punted in each of their first four possessions of the half and turned the ball over on downs on their final possession of the game. FSU quarterback Deondre Francois threw for 178 yards and rushed for the lone Seminoles touchdown in the loss.

The running game wasn't much of a factor for the Seminoles either, with Cam Akers leading the way, gaining 53 yards on 10 attempts.

Syracuse: The Orange are unbeaten and seem poised to finally break out of the rut that has seen them finish 4-8 three straight times.
