TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The Florida State Seminoles can expect to move up when The Associated Press football poll is released on Tuesday.
Freshman Deondre Francois threw for 419 yards and the fourth-ranked Seminoles scored 23 unanswered points in the third quarter to turn a 28-13 halftime deficit into a 45-34 win against No. 11 Mississippi. Freddie Stevenson and Kermit Whitefield scored on short runs 2:05 apart to put FSU ahead 29-28 midway through the third period. Francois added his second TD pass of the night later in the quarter to give the Seminoles an eight-point cushion.
Freshman Ricky Aguayo converted an FSU-record six field goals on six attempts, breaking a mark shared by his brother Roberto.
Dalvin Cook was a double threat on offense, rushing for 91 yards on 23 carries and catching seven passes for 101 yards.
Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly threw for 313 yards and four touchdowns but was intercepted three times.
