Florida State

10/18: Florida State 31, Notre Dame 27

The Seminoles beat the Fighting Irish in a battle of unbeatens in Tallahassee. Notre Dame had a chance to win the game in the final seconds, but Corey Robinson's go-ahead touchdown was waved off due to offensive pass interference. Jameis Winston improved to 20-0 as a starter. The Seminoles have scored at least 30 points in all 20 of Winston's starts. 

10/11: Florida State 38, Syracuse 20

Florida State improved its record to 6-0 with the win. Quarterback Jameis Winston had a terrific outing, throwing for 317 yards on 30-of-36 passing with three touchdowns. Freshman Dalvin Cook led the way out of the backfield with 122 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries. Rashad Greene became the school's all-time leading receiver after his six-catch, 107-yard day. 

10/04: Florida State 43, Wake Forest 3

Junior linebacker Reggie Northrup had his first career forced fumble and returned it 31 yards for a touchdown. The FSU defense was stellar, allowing just 126 yards of total offense to Wake Forest. Kicker Robert Aguayo tied a school record by making five field goals, becoming the fourth player in school history to do so.

9/27: Florida State 56, NC State 41

Florida State had a big scare early, falling behind 24-7 in the first quarter. The Noles didn't grab their first lead until there were about three minutes remaining in the third quarter. Jameis Winston, returning from his one-game suspension, finished with 365 yards and four touchdowns but also tossed two interceptions. 

9/20 Florida State 23, Clemson 17 (OT)

Karlos Williams won the game for Florida State with a 12-yard touchdown run in overtime. With Jameis Winston suspended for the game, Sean Maguire connected with Rashad Greene for a 74-yard touchdown pass to tie it with 6:04 left in regulation. The game was Florida State's first overtime win since a double-OT victory over NC State in 2003.

9/06: Florida State 37, The Citadel 12

The victory over The Citadel was Florida State's 18th straight, setting a program record. Florida State is now 28-0 against unranked opponents when ranked No. 1. The Seminoles’ streak of 20 straight games forcing at least one turnover ended.

8/30: Florida State 37, Oklahoma State 31

Florida State never trailed in the game. Rashad Greene became the sixth Seminole receiver with a 200-yard game, totaling 203 yards. Jameis Winston went 25-for-40 for 370 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Louisville

10/18: Louisville 30, NC State 18

Running back Michael Dyer led the way for the Cardinals, with 173 rushing yards on 24 carries. His touchdown with 44 seconds remaining put the game out of reach. It was Dyer's first 100-yard game with Louisville after recording ten such games in two seasons with Auburn. Senior receiver DeVante Parker, who tied a school record with 12 touchdowns last season, made his season debut after being held out previously with a foot injury. He caught nine passes for 132 yards, including a 37-yard grab on his first snap of the season.

10/11: Clemson 23, Louisville 17

The Cardinals nearly upended the Tigers in Death Valley with a last-minute comeback attempt. Louisville started its final drive of the game deep in its own territory, trailing by six with 1:20 left to play. Will Gardner found James Quick for a 73-yard completion on the first play of the drive to give Louisville a first-and-goal at the Clemson 8-yard line, but the Cardinals couldn't find the end zone and turned the ball over on downs. 

10/03: Louisville 28, Syracuse 6

The Cardinal defense recorded two safeties and had two interceptions. Brandon Radcliff ran for 110 yards and two touchdowns. Louisville came into the game with the best rushing defense in the nation, allowing 58.2 yards per game. They held the Orange to 59 yards on the ground.

09/27: Louisville 20, Wake Forest 10

The Cardinals rallied with 13 points in the fourth quarter, taking the lead for good on a 16-yard run by Brandon Radcliff with 11:41 remaining in regulation. Louisville has forced 13 turnovers in five games, the most at this point in the season since the 2005 team had 14. The Cardinals held Wake Forest to minus-22 yards rushing, the fewest allowed since holding Grambling to minus-56 in 2000.

09/20: Louisville 34, FIU 3

Running back Michael Dyer saw his first action of the season after missing the first three games with an injured quad. He had 16 yards on eight carries. Wide receiver James Quick had a career-high 174 yards receiving on seven catches, the most receiving yards for a Louisville player since Arnold Jackson had 174 against Cincinnati in 1999. Safety Gerod Holliman had two interceptions for the second straight game and has five on the season.

09/13: Virginia 23, Louisville 21

09/06: Louisville 66, Murray State 21

The Cardinals’ 45 points in the first half were their most in an opening half since scoring 49 against Murray State in 2007. Louisville had six rushing touchdowns and had two players -- Reggie Bonnafon and Brandon Radcliff -- with at least two apiece for the first time since 2006. The Cardinals rushed for 325 yards, their highest total since 2008.

09/01: Louisville 31, Miami 13
