After a tough fourth quarter loss last week to Clemson, the Noles found themselves trailing again 20-10 in the second half at Raleigh tonight. But this time, they turned it on for a 24-20 comeback ACC win over the Wolfpack.
QB Deondre Francois led the go ahead and eventual game winning 83 yard TD drive and this crucial score:

Travis Rudolph hauled in the winner with just over three minutes left to cap the rally.
Francois finished with 330 yards passing and made up for stud RB Dalvin Cook only getting 65 yards rushing on the night. Cook did get a third quarter 10 yard TD run. You have to credit Jimbo Fisher, his staff and his players for having the mental and physical toughness to comeback on the road in this situation for the win.
The victory makes FSU 6-3 and the Noles 3-3 in the ACC. More impressively, they are now bowl eligible for an incredible 35th consecutive season.
