Miami vs. Florida State LIVE SCORE UPDATES (10/7/17) | College football

Rosier is looking in the right places but is finding his receivers just a second too late every time and is unable to place his passes on target.

In a rivalry that so many times has come down to one kick, No. 13 Miami instead broke a seven-game losing streak to in-state rival Florida State in a 24-20 victory on Saturday with one ideal back-shoulder throw. "Our receivers were killing them on routes", said Rosier, who was 19 of 44 for 254 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. "Stop letting immature mistakes come in when I go out on the field".

Rosier didn't leave a foot to chance.

With a 23-yard pass from Malik Rosier to Darrell Langham, Miami stunned a crowd of 78,000 at Doak Campbell Stadium and left 'Noles fans feeling more uncertain than ever.

Kelly Bryant named top under-the-radar Heisman contender
Adam Choice added a rushing TD and Cannon Smith added a 13-yard touchdown catch from third-string passer Hunter Johnson . WR Scotty Washington's 16-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter was the first touchdown catch of his career.

We're all for sportsmanship, but this is one case where it is hard to blame the players for having some fun after taking down a rival.

The Seminoles may not have a pretty season, and this likely won't be the last loss that they suffer, yet with time the 'Noles will find their stride and look to rebound from a below-average start. Perhaps the College Football Playoff is among the possibilities; it's tough to count Miami out after a victory like this. Miami head coach Mark Richt won two national titles as an assistant coach with the Seminoles in 1993 and 1999.

"The U" might not be back how you want it to be, but with Richt and Rosier, the Hurricanes have a combination that's good enough to put them in position to play for an ACC championship. When asked after the game what changed in the second half, he pointed to Berrios. Inside their own 5-yard line, Canes go three-and-out. But he wasn't the only quarterback in the state to struggle.

Glen Davis: Cam Newton Comments to Female Reporter Caused by 'Woman Problems'
In Charlotte, Rothacker & Peralta note Newton had a "deal with Belk, the Charlotte retailer that carries his fashion line". Boarding the team's flight to Detroit on Saturday, Newton was seen wearing a women empowerment pin on his hat.

He was helped by Braxton Berrios, who had eight catches for 90 yards and two scores, including receptions of 17 and 11 yards on the decisive drive. After Blackman and Tate hooked up, Rosier was again up to the task. Blackman hit Ryan Izzo for a touchdown then led a field goal drive to put the Seminoles up 13-10. Rosier nearly picked off while feeling pressure in own end zone. Blackman finished his first game against the Hurricanes 17-for-28 for 203 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions.

Becker, who contributed on defense and special teams a year ago as FSU's secondary depth dwindled, finished Saturday's game with two solo tackles. Adam Choice added a rushing score and Cannon Smith added a 13-yard touchdown catch from third-string passer Hunter Johnson. Playing behind stars like Phillip Dorsett, Stacy Coley, David Njoku and a year ago, freshman sensation Ahmmon Richards, Berrios finished with 12 catches for 86 yards in 2015, and 12 for 178 and two scores in 2016. Miami didn't even cross midfield until the second half. Due to Miami's lack of offense, they totaled 57 yards and zero points in the first half for the first time since 2015.

As he told ESPN's cameras after the game, paraphrasing former Miami star Santana Moss' comments after the Canes beat the Noles in 2000: "Big-time players make big-time plays in big-time games".
