Friday’s Top 25 college football game


No. 20 Florida State 45, Boston College 7

TALLAHASSEE, FLA.

Dalvin Cook ran for 108 yards and Deondre Francois tied a season high with three touchdown passes to help Florida State. Cook became only the second Seminoles back to go over 100 yards in 15 meetings against the Eagles and the first since Ricky Williams had 109 yards in 1980. The junior, who also had a touchdown on 18 carries, moved within 19 yards of breaking Warrick Dunn’s school career mark of 3,959 yards. Francois completed nine of his first 11 passes, and the Seminoles scored on their first two drives. A 6-yard scoring strike to Auden Tate marked the first time Florida State (7-4, 4-3 ACC, No. 18 CFP) has scored on its opening drive since Sept. 24 at South Florida. The freshman was 16 of 24 for 183 yards, but suffered a shoulder contusion late in the third quarter and did not return. Sean Maguire came in and added a pair of touchdowns. Tate, who had six receptions for 101 yards, had two touchdowns. Coach Jimbo Fisher said Francois’ injury wasn’t major and that it is likely he would not miss any games. “I love the way we came out and started the game. We were very efficient offensively,” Fisher said. “We got the lead and were able to play from ahead for once. It felt weird.” The Eagles (4-6, 1-5) had three first downs on their first two drives before having nine straight three-and-outs. Associated Press
