The Virginia Cavaliers took a 7-0 lead over the Florida St. Seminoles just seconds into the second quarter. The Cavaliers had started on their own 18-yard line, but quarterback Michael Rocco was unfazed by this field position. He had completions of 13, 14 and 31 yards, the latter putting the team at Florida State's 14-yard line. Three plays later, Rocco found Perry Jones for the seven-yard touchdown pass. Rocco has completed 11 of 17 passes for 116 yards.
Virginia's running game has been non-existent, totaling just eight yards. However, the Seminoles are in the opposite position. They have 83 yards on the ground, but just 13 passing yards. E.J. Manuel has gone 4-of-5 in the air, but the yards just aren't there yet.
Receiver Rashad Greene did have a 53-yard rush for the Seminoles, putting his team at Virginia's 16-yard line. But fortune did not favor the Seminoles that drive as Bill Schautz sacked EJ Manuel and forced a fumble. LaRoy Reynolds recovered the ball for the Cavaliers.
