Well, this certainly isn’t going to help Florida State in the all-important game control metrics. At a rain-soaked (what else is new?) Doak Campbell Stadium, the third-ranked Seminoles lead Boston College 17-10 at the half.
Florida State opened the game with a 14-play, 75-yard touchdown drive, capped by a three-yard Karlos Williams run, that ate 6:24 off the clock, and Boston College responded with a 14-play, 50-yard drive that consumed 8:22 to pull within 7-3.
A Roberto Aguayo field goal put the Seminoles up 10-3, but Boston College clawed back into it with an interception of Jameis Winston on a tipped pass and a 49-yard touchdown pass from Tyler Murphy to Shakim Phillips.
Florida State responded immediately with a 75-yard scoring drive, capped by a 30-yard pass from Winston to Nick O’Leary.
Winston has completed 14-of-20 passes for 193 yards with a touchdown and an interception while Murphy, a former Gator, has hit four of his five passes for 63 yards and a touchdown. Boston College holds a 95-36 rushing advantage.
Rashad Greene was taken to the locker room with an apparent arm injury, but returned to the field just before the half.
Boston College will receive the ball to open the second half.
