UM's Mark Walton To Undergo Surgery On Ankle

09 October 2017

James Blackman, FSU's freshman quarterback, threaded a needle to hit Ryan Izzo for the game-tying score.

Then Florida State took the lead on the Blackman-to-Tate score.

Despite a rough loss to Miami on Saturday afternoon, Florida State football received good news on the recruiting front on Sunday. One play later, Berrios hauled in a touchdown pass from Rosier that put the Canes up, 10-3.

In searching for perspective on this year's Miami-Florida State game, there seems no better source than Hurricanes Coach Mark Richt.

Rosier had an all-or-nothing performance after finishing 19 of 44 for 254 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. His winning TD run came only five plays after an apparent interception was reversed on a replay review. Seems like the junior quarterback can take criticism, coaching, and handle pressure. It bounced back to win five in a row to the end the season, setting the stage for a 2017 season in which it hoped to make its first ACC title game appearance.

The final verdict was a dominating performance behind Kyle Hendricks , who absolutely shut down the Washington Nationals bats. Setup man Carl Edwards Jr . made easy work of the bottom of the eighth, striking out two and getting Bryce Harper to pop out.

After falling behind 13-10, Miami went on a 6-play, 75-yard drive in just 1:46 to regain the lead.

Following the victory, a handful of Hurricanes players went to midfield and begin pretending to dig up the field at the midfield logo.

"We had a wonderful celebration in the locker room", said Richt, who is 7-1 in road games since taking the job previous year. The Seminoles have gotten a few of those runs this game. When it came to one of the ADs, they should've anxious more about their players' play - and the weather - on the field.

Junior running Mark Walton had a rough day in Tallahassee Saturday night.

Newton's 3 TDs help Panthers beat Lions
In the third, the Panthers made it 27-10 after Newton's 31-yard touchdown pass to Benjamin and Gano's 44-yard field goal. For the second week in a row, the Panthers saw a big lead go away by allowing a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown drives.

Entering Saturday's game, during which Walton was clearly hurting, his 9.1 yards per carry ranked second in the nation and his 134.3 rushing yards per game ranked fifth nationally.

Walton has not looked like himself all game while nursing an ankle injury that has bothered him for two weeks. Sophomore Travis Homer played during the fourth quarter and had three carries for 29 yards. He was one of the best punt returners in the ACC, but was aching to use his sure hands and speed to help Miami's offense. Their next matchup will probably come in the NFL. Mostly against lesser competition: Bethune-Cookman, Toledo, and Duke.

What's more disconcerting to the Seminoles is that defense was supposed to be the team's strength this season, with all 11 starters returning. Freshman running back Cam Akers and the "Noles racked up 203 yards on the ground".

Florida State, for some reason, runs it on third-and-eight.

The Green Wave (3-2, 1-1 American) blistered Tulsa, 62-28, scoring its most points in a conference game since 1997. Oklahoma has a rough schedule ahead, facing Texas, Kansas State, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State in the next month.

The Hurricanes finally get a big offensive play - Rosier to Richards for 32 yards. 23 due to Hurricane Irma. They host the 3-1 Georgia Teck Yellow Jackets with their triple-option offense.
