Miami Vs. Florida State Score Update: Noles Hold 20-7 Lead, Driving To Start Fourth Quarter

Florida State opened up the second half with what looked like another long kick return for a touchdown, but a holding call brought the play back. Florida State marched down the field however, on the arm of quarterback E.J. Manuel, including a 33-yard reception by wide receiver Bert Reed to put the Noles to the Miami 29-yard line. Manuel hit wide receiver Kenny Shaw for 13-yards a few plays later to get to the 9-yard line. The Hurricanes defense held strong however, and held the Noles to a field goal pushing their lead to 20-7.

The teams traded punts back and forth after stalled drives. Another Miami drive was stopped short and the Hurricanes punted, Greg Reid had another sensation return, but a questionable roughing the punter personal foul gave the Hurricanes a first down and new life. Miami shot themselves in the foot with penalties however and punted again.

Florida State got the football back and connected on their first two passes, including a 14-yard pass to Christian Green to close out the third quarter. FSU holds a 20-7 lead and are driving.
