However, now they have different endings to their last game of the regular season. Florida State tops Florida 27-2. Florida State wins its third straight game in Gainesville. The Florida State seniors now have won 49 games in their careers, a new program record.
"Two top teams in the country, that's what Florida State and Florida is supposed to be, and I want to say a special thanks to our seniors," FSU Head Coach Jimbo Fisher said.
In a defensive game, Florida State scored the first touchdown in the second quarter when on 4th down Sean Maguire threw a touchdown pass to tight end Jeremy Kerr. It was his first reception and touchdown of the season. That extended the lead to 10-0. Dalvin Cook added two more touchdowns in the 4th quarter to put the game away.
