Florida State Vs. Florida Final Score: Seminoles Send Gators To 21-7 Defeat

The Florida St. Seminoles are now on a two-game winning streak against their rival Florida Gators following a 21-7 victory on Saturday night. The amazing thing about this victory for the Seminoles is that they had almost no offense throughout the entire game. In fact, Florida State had 92 total yards and 96 yards in penalties.

The Seminoles took advantage of Florida quarterback John Brantley's three interceptions by converting two of them into Devonta Freeman rushing touchdowns. Terrance Parks intercepted a pass by Jacoby Brissett, replacing an injured John Brantley, at Florida's 29-yard and returned it for a touchdown

Brissett, though, did throw a six-yard touchdown to Quinton Dunbar late in the game. Dunbar barely kept one foot in bounds before he fell down into the white. On the ensuing Florida State drive, the two school almost erupted into a brawl after a personal foul by Florida's Matt Elam led the Seminoles' Greg Reid to get up in his face. The Florida State coaches defused the situation before it got out of hand.

Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel finished the game with six completions on 13 attempts for 57 yards. His running backs picked up just 35 yards.
