Florida State vs. Miami 2012 score update: Hurricanes lead Seminoles 10-3 after one quarter

The Florida State Seminoles entered their game against the Miami Hurricanes as big favorites. However, their old rivals don't seem to be in the mood to roll over. Two turnovers by the Seminoles have helped stake the Hurricanes to a 10-3 lead after one quarter.

A Nick O'Leary fumble 1:30 into the game gave Miami the ball at Florida State's 22-yard line. Four plays later, Mike James ran it around the left edge from 9 yards out to give Miami a quick and unexpected 7-0 lead. The Canes were able to force a three and out on the next drive, and got the ball back with good field position. Miami heavily featured James and got the ball inside the FSU five, but had to settle for a 19-yard field goal by Jake Wieclaw to make it a 10-0 lead. Florida State answered with a 33-yard field goal by Dustin Hopkins with just over a minute left in the quarter to make the game 10-3.
