CHESTNUT HILL, Ma. (WTXL) — Odell Haggins received a Powerade bath from his Seminoles, after the team defeated Boston College in Chestnut Hill.
The 38-31 win was nice for players, coaches, boosters, and fans alike after an eventful week. However, it was also Haggins' third win as a head coach, which happens to be his third game as a head coach too.
The Seminoles didn't have captain and defensive tackle Marvin Wilson. Wilson injured his hand during the Miami game and just recently had surgery on it. Despite not having Wilson on the defensive side and trailing by 11 points in the 2nd quarter, Florida State found a way to score.
FSU scored 21 straight points before Boston College would answer with a touchdown and extra point to tie the game in the 4th quarter.
With under 2:30 remaining in regulation, Blackman got the ball to DJ Matthews who worked his way towards the endzone before leaping for the pylon several yards out.
FSU led 31-24 before Boston College fateful interception.
Redshirt freshman quarterback, Jordan Travis, who went in for the first time this season in the first half against Boston College, would score his second touchdown of the game. That touchdown ended up being the game winner, since Boston College would score just a few plays after Travis' second score.
The starting quarterback was James Blackman, who completed 18-of-26 passes for 346 yards and two touchdowns.
Tamorrion Terry had 7 catches for 156 yards and 1 touchdown.
Seminoles are back home on Nov. 16. FSU hosts Alabama State. They need just one more game to be bowl eligible.
