    Francois, Murray rally Seminoles past Louisville, 28-24

    Florida State coach Willie Taggart wasn't expecting Louisville to throw the ball late. Neither was Seminoles defensive back A.J. Westbrook.

    But Louisville, up three with the ball at the Seminoles 21 and the clock running under 2:00, did just that, and Westbrook, a senior safety, stepped in front to get the interception his team desperately needed. Five plays later, Deondre Francois connected with Nyqwan Murray on a 58-yard touchdown pass with 1:13 left to give the Seminoles a wild 28-24 come-from-behind victory Saturday.

    Willis leads Virginia Tech to 31-14 upset of No. 22 Duke

    Virginia Tech's offense hummed right along with backup quarterback Ryan Willis. The defense barely resembled the leaky group that took the blame for a humiliating loss.

    There wasn't anything wrong with these Hokies that another trip to Duke couldn't fix.

    Willis threw for 332 yards and a career-best three touchdowns in his first start for the Hokies, helping them upset No. 22 Duke 31-14 on Saturday night.

    Former Clemson running back C.J. Fuller dies at 22

    [​IMG]


    Former Clemson running back C.J. Fuller has died at the age of 22, the school confirmed Wednesday night.

    "Our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies are with C.J.'s family," Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said. "I've known C.J. a long time and watched him grow up through the Easley rec leagues [in South Carolina] all the way through Easley High School. I'm proud of what he accomplished as a Clemson Tiger, most of all his accomplishment of being a Clemson graduate. Our deepest condolences and the thoughts of our program are with his family this evening. May he rest in peace."

    Clemson did not give a cause of death. The Pickens County coroner in South Carolina told The State newspaper that results of an autopsy will take six to eight weeks.

    Marshall, Georgia Tech run all over Louisville 66-31

    Earlier this season, Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson decided to make a change.

    After Johnson's Yellow Jackets walked out of Louisville with a 66-31 victory Friday night, it might be time for the Cardinals to make some changes, too.

    No. 23 NC State holds off Boston College 28-23 to reach 5-0

    North Carolina State went from dominating Boston College on both sides of the ball to frittering just about everything away -- first momentum, then nearly all of a big second-half lead -- in a suddenly close finish.

    And yet, the 23rd-ranked Wolfpack stayed unbeaten.

    Comeback for the ages: No. 17 Miami stuns FSU, 28-27

    At Miami, this will be The Comeback.

    At Florida State, this will be The Collapse.

    N'Kosi Perry threw four touchdown passes, and No. 17 Miami pulled off its biggest comeback ever against Florida State by rallying from 20 points down midway through the second half to top the Seminoles 28-27 on Saturday night.
