10/21/2017 03:23 PM

The UofL Cards finished the game in Tallahassee 31-28 against the Florida State Seminoles. Both teams were tied at 14 at the half but the Cards returned from the locker room strong. Lamar Jackson handed the ball to freshman Dae Williams and he ran 25 yards for his first career touchdown.

The third quarter ended with UofL 28, FSU 14. But the Seminoles were able to recover a loose ball in the end zone to close the gap to 7 points. And that play was followed quickly by a 20 yard touch down pass for FSU to tie up the game.

UofL’s Henry Famurewa was able to make a game-changing recovery of a loose ball with just two minutes left in the game. The Cards were able to move the ball into field goal range. And despite a five yard penalty for a false start, Cardinal kicker Blanton Creque got the field goal bringing the score to 31-28 with just five seconds left in the game.

This is the fourth time the Cards have taken on the Seminoles since UofL joined the ACC in 2014. The Seminoles game into today’s game with a 2-1 advantage. The Cards will take on Wake Forest next Saturday in Winston Salem.
