TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA (Seminoles) – Willie Taggart spent the offseason preaching speed and simplicity.

After watching Florida State’s debut on Monday night, perhaps patience is in order, too.

In front of a packed Doak Campbell Stadium, desperate for any reason to get excited, the 19th-ranked Seminoles had the look of a rebuilding program.

And their opponent, the 20th-ranked Virginia Tech Hokies, looked like a team in Year 3 with their current staff.

Virginia Tech marched down the field for a touchdown on its opening drive, extended its lead to two touchdowns late in the second quarter, then methodically finished off the second half for a startling, deflating 24-3 victory over FSU.

It marked FSU’s first home game without a touchdown since 2008.

The Seminoles are 0-1 for the second straight season and will look to even their record Saturday at home against Samford.
