Florida State vs. Duke score: Seminoles lead 45-7 after 3rd

The No. 12 Florida State Seminoles continue their dominance over the bowl-eligible Duke Blue Devils on the afternoon, expanding their lead to 38 after three quarters at Tallahassee's Doak Campbell Stadium.

At the half, Florida State had a 31-7 lead over Duke, combining a strong defensive performance with a powerful and consistent rushing attack. This trend continued during the third quarter, with the Blue Devils failing to score altogether while Florida State scored two touchdowns. The first touchdown was 14-yard Devonta Freeman rush for a touchdown, and the second was a 35-yard pass from EJ Manuel to Kelvin Bejamin for a touchdown.

Freeman has 104 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries on the afternoon. He leads the Seminole rushing attack, which has totaled 204 yards and three touchdowns.

Duke has gained only 202 yards through three quarters, with most of those coming from the Duke passing attack.
