Not much has gone right for the Florida State Seminoles of late when it comes to college football. They nearly did something correct on Sunday night against the #9 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish, though. In a game befitting of being played in prime time, the Seminoles would just never go away.
Having led a couple of times in a seesaw affair, they fell behind 38-20 heading into the fourth and looked out of it. That’s before McKenzie Milton, playing for the first time since 2018, took over and led them to tie the game up and force overtime. Once there, though, Notre Dame held its nerve and won on a 41-yard field goal from Jonathan Doerer. The 41-38 win is a crucial step as the Irish hope to contend for the CFP this season. Irish QB Jack Coan finished 26-35 for 366 yards and four touchdowns. Seminoles running back Jashaun Corbin impressed by running for 144 yards on just 15 carries. He also had one touchdown in the epic clash in Tallahassee.
