End of Game: Florida State looks like they are going to struggle a bit to return to the National Championship in Dallas in January. But a win is a win, and the Seminoles have that win tonight.
End of Game: The Play of the Game tonight definitely belonged to cornerback PJ Williams. OSU was moving the ball from the second quarter and on, forcing the fumble on JW Walsh that led to the additional touchdown was absolutely necessary.

4th Quarter 1:41--Williams rushes just past a first down marker. The ball is at the OSU 36. OSU takes another timeout. Not much of a chance at hope left for the Cowboys. FSU has a great field goal kicker, so even if they don't get a first down, they could tack on 3 more points.

4th Quarter 4:08--Rashad Green takes the ball and turns upfield and put on the Jets. 50 yard touchdown reception. Over 200 yards receiving for Green. Seminoles now lead 37-24. This should wrap the game up quite a bit.

3rd Quarter 8:05--Oklahoma State has a horrible snap on the punt, hitting an upback and FSU will get the ball at the FSU 44.
3rd Quarter 8:05--Florida State takes a final timeout with OSU lined up in punt formation. Doesn't really make much sense, but it's an odd spot to punt as well.

8:12 PM EST--Still waiting for kickoff, Now they are having Adam Levine sing some sort of entry song. It's so tough to wait for the game to finally be here.
8:06 PM EST--They still haven't shown any Oklahoma State Cowboys on the sideline. So it's currently uncertain if they will be wearing Orange, Black, Gray, or any other assortment of random colors like teams do in recent years.
8:03 PM EST--The Florida State Seminoles are wearing White uniforms with gold number and gold helmets this evening.
8:02 PM EST--Still waiting for kickoff to finally happen. Kirk Herbstreet and Chris Fowler are in the broadcasting booth.

7:52 PM EST--Sorry for the delay there my friends. There was some technical difficulties with the television that needed to be fixed.
7:25 PM EST--One more defensive player to look for Florida State is Junior defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. He is 6'3" and 294 lbs. Against Auburn he had 6 tackles, 3 for loss, and a sack. He is very disruptive and a player that opposing offense have to game plan specifically against. He wears number 15 for the Seminoles.
7:20 PM EST--Don't forget about his left tackle on the offensive line, redshirt Senior Cameron Erving. He is a candidate for the Outland trophy, and at 6'6" and 308 lbs. He could be other player the Seminoles have taken in the first round. It is very interesting to note that when he was a redshirt Freshman, he played no offensive line but was a defensive tackle instead. The big man wears number 75 for the Seminoles.
7:15 PM EST--Everyone knows that the Heisman trophy winner, redshirt Sophomore Jameis Winston could make the early leap to the NFL after this season.
