Davlvin Cook breaks free for 37-yard TD

Florida State's Heisman hopeful breaks through defenders on this 37-yard TD run. No. 3 FSU leads Charleston Southern 42-6.

Dalvin Cook cannot be contained for this TD (1:08)

 

No. 3 Florida State needed to keep momentum going with Louisville next, so the starters could play into the third quarter. It was not been a great second quarter with an interception, blown coverage and a few sacks. Ideally the starters would be out by now, but Jimbo Fisher was not happy.

 

Jacques Patrick continues to run with the power Jimbo Fisher has asked him to. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound sophomore is initiating contact, which defenders are not welcoming considering Patrick's size. Florida State needs a complement to Dalvin Cook.
