CHESTNUT HILL, MASSACHUSETTS (Florida State) – He’s Odell Haggins, he’s back again.
Tasked with leading his alma mater as interim head coach for the second time in three seasons, Haggins, Florida State’s beloved former-player-turned-assistant-coach, oversaw yet another inspiring afternoon for the FSU football team.
D.J. Matthews’ 60-yard touchdown catch from James Blackman gave the Seminoles a late lead, then a 66-yard scoring run from Jordan Travis – yes, that Jordan Travis – put the finishing touches on a 38-31 win over Boston College on a chilly afternoon at Alumni Stadium.
The Eagles added a late touchdown that provided the final margin, but, by then, the Seminoles were well on their way to a welcome victory that came at the end of a tumultuous week.
“We’ve got some great kids on this football team,” Haggins said, his grey FSU t-shirt still soaked from the Powerade – not Gatorade – shower he’d received a few moments before.
“A lot of people want to count them out, but they wanted to show the nation: ‘We are Florida State.’”
