FINAL: Florida State 31, North Carolina 28
It was nearly a heck of a comeback, but North Carolina couldn't quite overcome their poor first half against the Seminoles. North Carolina tried to erase a 31-7 halftime deficit, and nearly got there, but a trio of bad dropped passes at the end of the game allowed Florida State to hang on for the win. This is a statement win for first-year coach Mike Norvell as he tries to build this proud program back up. Florida State's offensive line played much better tonight than it has all year with FSU rushing for more than 200 yards. North Carolina, put simply, didn't execute as well as it needed to in order to win. Lots of questionable play calls, poor throws from Sam Howell and bad defense ended up costing North Carolina. And now coach Mack Brown is 0-for-10 against FSU.
