The Hurricanes used a late touchdown by Darrell Longham to snap a seven-game losing streak against hated rival Florida State in front of a stunned crowd in Tallahassee.
"I told the guys that we had plenty of time for us to go score".
Rosier had an all-or-nothing performance after finishing 19 of 44 for 254 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
Tate caught a 20-yard touchdown from Blackman to regain the lead, 20-17, with 1:24 left.
Rosier though found Langham in single coverage up the right sideline and he beat Tarvarus McFadden. Following a long replay review, the play stood.
"The last play was simply a four verticals play". "We're going to keep our heads up and move forward, we're not the type of team to keep looking back on games and feel bad". "We always take one-high man and throw it to the short side. He's growing and will continue making great plays". It was a contest where FSU football - a team who on paper seems to be in real danger of not being bowl eligible - had the lead late in the fourth quarter against the No. 13 ranked team in the country, showing they have the ability to play well.
Langham caught the exclamation point, but much of the heavy lifting was done by senior receiver Braxton Berrios.
"We'll coach them better ... blame it on me", Fisher said after the game.
The undefeated Hurricanes stayed unbeaten when they scored a game-winning touchdown in the final seconds of their contest at Florida State.
It is the first time since 1974 that the Seminoles have dropped their first two home games of a season.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nick Chubb ran for two touchdowns and 138 yards, and Georgia routed Vanderbilt despite missing three players from the Bulldogs' stingy defense. Going into Week 4, they had each played just one game, with precious little information to evaluate them by.
Miami made halftime adjustments and found ways to get wide receiver Ahmmon Richards open more. Blackman finished 17-28 passing for 203 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Blackman followed with an 11-yard run on a zone read and Jacques Patrick rushed for 10 yards to put the Noles in the red zone at the Miami 14.
It's the reason defensive coordinator Charles Kelly has become the favorite social media whipping boy of FSU fans, although head coach Jimbo Fisher, the only one on the staff allowed to talk to the media, took the blame for the staff after the game. He said that he tries not to focus on the past, but did have some flashbacks to his time at FSU on the drive into the stadium.
He now has a touchdown catch in each of his first four games this season.
Miami had known nothing but heartbreak against Florida State in recent years.
For three straight years, Miami came oh so close to beating Florida State in the fourth quarter. It bounced back to win five in a row to the end the season, setting the stage for a 2017 season in which it hoped to make its first ACC title game appearance. After starting the season as a prime contender for the College Football Playoff, the Seminoles are 1-3 overall and 1-2 in the ACC.
A good roster plus excellent all-around coach is a winning formula for the Hurricanes, and Richt is capable of leading the team back to glory.
There's a new top team in the state of Florida.
