01/02/2013 - So much for happy endings to storybook seasons. Heavily favored Florida State crushed Northern Illinois' hopes of completing a dream season with a dominating defensive performance in the Discover Orange Bowl on Tuesday night. The final score of 31-10 didn't really tell the whole story, as the Seminoles, champions of the Atlantic Coast Conference, kept the upstarts from the Mid-American Conference pretty much under control throughout the warm evening. Only in the third quarter, when the Huskies recovered an onside kick after scoring their only touchdown, was there much of an inkling that the Huskies might be able to pull off the unlikely upset.
The Seminoles' defense rose up, however, and stopped the Huskies (12-2) on safety Terrence Brooks' interception on third-and-8 at the Florida State 23-yard line. The Seminoles (12-2) amassed 534 yards in total offense. Senior quarterback EJ Manuel threw for 295 yards, completing 27 of 39 attempts, and senior fullback Lonnie Pryor gained 134 yards on just five carries. Pryor scored on runs of 60 and 37 yards in addition to igniting a drive to a third-quarter field goal with a 31-yard dash. He was selected the game's outstanding player. - The Sports Xchange
10/13/2012 - Florida State got back on track by throwing the ball all over the field. Despite facing a Boston College defense that came into the game with a rushing defense that ranked 117th in the country, the Seminoles mostly eschewed the running game and instead opted for the arm of E.J. Manuel, who threw for a career-high 439 yards and four touchdowns in No. 11 FSU's 51-7 win. Running backs James Wilder Jr. and Lonnie Pryor each scored twice for the Seminoles, who piled up 649 yards of offense and handed BC its most lopsided loss since a 54-7 defeat to Notre Dame in 1992. On its opening drive, BC (1-5, 0-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) appeared ready to pick up where North Carolina State left off a week ago, marching the ball 68 yards to FSU's 1-yard line in just six plays. The Seminoles' defense, though, denied BC four times from near the goal line and the Eagles turned it over on downs. FSU (6-1, 3-1 ACC) then called six straight pass plays, with Manuel's 77-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Shaw doing most of the legwork, on a 99-yard scoring drive. Manuel threw two more first-half touchdown passes and Lonnie Pryor scored from two yards out as FSU went into the break with a 31-7 advantage. - The Sports Xchange
