The Noles dropped a heartbreaker to the Louisville Cardinals 31-28 and here is how it went down. Lamar Jackson made his presence felt early with a 22-yard touchdown run to get the scoring started.
The Noles would answer back with Blackman hitting a wide-open Ryan Izzo on an out route for a 7-yard touchdown. The next score wouldn’t come until 4:08 left in the second quarter when Jackson was sacked then fumbled and the Noles returned it for six giving them a 14-7 lead.
With a little over a minute left in the quarter Jackson would throw a beautiful pass into the corner of the end zone knotting the game up going into halftime. The Cardinals did all the scoring in the third quarter a Jackson slick 50-yard run led to a Bonnafon run for a 2-yard touchdown.
After a pick by Blackman, the Cards would capitalize with a 25-yard rushing touchdown. The Noles then owned the 4th quarter. After being gifted a questionable roughing the passer, the Noles would score on an uncharacteristic recovered fumble in the end zone.

The Noles would get the ball back, and Blackman would hit Nyqwan Murray who was one on one with a corner who he would beat. The Cards would get the ball back and turn it over on downs on a questionable play call taking the ball out of Jackson’s hands.
FSU would drive down the field, but Blackmon would fumble on a zone read, leading to Jackson taking his team down the field setting up the game-winning field goal.
FSU falls to 2-4, and all of the sudden the six wins to become bowl eligible are not a given. A Friday night trip to Boston College awaits the Noles.
