North Carolina State upsets Florida State

Because of Hurricane Irma Florida State quarterback James Blackman got two extra weeks of competition against his talented teammates to prepare for his first start

North Carolina State scored a 27-21 upset of No. 12 Florida State in Tallahassee on Saturday, the Wolfpack's first road win over a ranked team since 2008. The Seminoles lost their season opener against Alabama on September 2 and have not played in two weeks because of Hurricane Irma. Doeren is 0-4 against the Seminoles in his first four seasons under helm, and history is not on the Wolfpack's side. It also marks the first time since 2011 that FSU has dropped back-to-back games. FSU, meanwhile, hasn't played since the season-opening loss to Alabama due to Hurricane Irma-related issues and will have a freshman starting quarterback in James Blackman after losing Deondre Francois to a season-ending knee injury. The reigning Heisman Trophy victor now owns an ACC career mark for most rushing yards by a quarterback (2,834), while he enters Saturday's game against Kent State within three touchdowns of the ACC career record for rushing scores by a quarterback (38, set by Georgia Tech's Tevin Washington). Carson Wise kicked a 24-yard field goal and Samuels had a 2-yard touchdown on fourth-and-goal.

N.C. State would make the Seminoles pay with a 71 yard touchdown pass to make the score 17-7 with a minute and a half to go. The senior H-back had 12 receptions for 64 yards, five carries for 11 yards and had a 25-yard completion to Dylan Parham during the first quarter.

LONG SHOT: Appalachian State will have a home-field advantage against Wake Forest.
