Savannah State Vs. Florida State Final Score: Seminoles Cruise To Victory; 55-0

The No. 6 Florida State Seminoles absolutely crushed the Savannah State Tigers 55-0 in Doak Campbell Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The game was called with 8:59 remaining in the third quarter due to dangerous weather conditions.

The game was never in doubt, with the Seminoles grabbing a 35-0 lead before the end of the first quarter. Florida State was dominant from the start, outgaining the Tigers in total yardage by the obscene margin of 413 to 28.

E.J. Manuel started the game at quarterback for the Seminoles and went 11-of-13 passing for 161 yards and three touchdowns. Rodney Smith hauled in one of the scoring passes on a 61-yard bomb while Kelvin Benjamin caught a pair of touchdowns on the afternoon.

It was tough to watch for Savannah State. Quarterback Antonio Bostick was completely overwhelmed completing just 2-of-19 passes for nine yards.

The Tigers couldn't get anything going on the ground either, netting just 19 yards on 18 carries.

Florida State will take on Wake Forest next week at home.
