(SEMINOLES) – In their comeback victory over Ole Miss two weeks ago, Florida State’s script followed a familiar pattern of scoring before halftime, getting the ball back to start the third quarter and then scoring again.
So maybe the surest sign that things would be different here at Louisville’s Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium came when Louisville, not the Seminoles, scored the momentous touchdown at the end of the second quarter.
And it was Louisville, not FSU, that scored the decisive blow early in the third.
By then, the Seminoles trailed by 32 points and their hopes for yet another jump-off-the-mat rally were gone. This time, the hole was too far deep as No. 2 FSU fell prey to a Heisman-worthy performance by Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson in a 63-20 defeat.
“It starts with me and ends with me as the head coach,” FSU’s Jimbo Fisher said after the game. “You’ve got to fix it and look at your issues and (see) what you’ve got to do.
“Find it, correct it, coach them better. And they’ve got to play better.”
FSU (2-1, 0-1 ACC) will get a chance to play better at South Florida next Saturday at noon. The No. 10 Cardinals improved to 3-0 and, after a trip to Marshall next week, will then travel to Clemson for a game that will have massive implications for the ACC Atlantic Division.
