Florida State survives upset scare

FSU, Football, Sports

Florida State survived a scare in their season opener against Oklahoma State. A lot of experts had Florida State on upset alert going into this game, and they proved to be spot on as Oklahoma State was within three points of the defending champions in the 4th quarter.

Florida State’s run game struggled for most of the game, putting all the pressure on sophomore quarterback Jameis Winston. Winston had another good game for the Seminoles, especially when they needed him when the game was close.

Oklahoma State kicker Ben Grogan missed a field goal in the 1st quarter and that looked as though it would be a crucial play in the game, especially with Oklahoma State only down by three in the 4th.

PJ Williams was a big reason the Seminoles won as he played great at cornerback and he also forced a fumble and recovered it late in the 4th quarter.

Three defensive holding calls on Oklahoma State corner Lampkin proved to be crucial as they helped extend Florida State drives.

Florida State looks to bounce back next week at home against Citadel.
