TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida State's win over N.C. State could be looked at two ways, the first way, not so good, as the Noles trailed by ten early and were riddled with penalties and three turnovers. The second way however, had a more positive twist.

Those views had one difference- they are led by different quarterbacks. Everett Golson's team fell in an early 17-7 hole, but with less than six minutes remaining in the first half, Sean Maguire entered the game and led the Seminoles back to a 34-17 win over the Wolfpack.

The change in productivity is probably the ready why head coach Jimbo Fisher named Maguire the starter for Saturday's match-up with Chattanooga, although he was quick to say the quarterback race still isn't over.

"Sean's our starting quarterback as of right now with what we're doing," said Fisher on Monday. "Hopefully he'll play well and we won't have to relive that. I've been very pleased with Everett's performances, he had one tough quarter, quarter and a half all year. It was disastrous far as making a couple tough plays, but some of those situations he was put in was self-inflicted wounds by our offensive football team around him at times. I've been very pleased with him, very happy with him, so we're ready to go."

Florida State's final home game of the season kicks off at 3:00.
