Florida State Vs. Boston College Final Score: Seminoles Roll, 38-7

After a dominant first half, Florida State needed only to cruise in the second half against Boston College. That's more or less what the Seminoles did, throttling down to second gear after a 28-0 halftime lead for a 38-7 victory in Chestnut Hill.

E.J. Manuel paced the 'Noles through the air and on the ground, passing for 180 yards and a touchdown and running for another 37 against a tough rush defense. Devonta Freeman had 62 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while Nick O'Leary led Florida State with 87 receiving yards.

BC has little to hang its hat on after this one, having gained just 207 yards of offense and given Florida State four turnovers.

The victory moves Florida State to 6-3 in 2011, and drops the Eagles to 2-7, making them ineligible to play in a bowl at the end of the season.
