On the game’s second play from scrimmage, Cook took a handoff from quarterback Sean Maguire and went 75 yards upfield for a touchdown on his first carry of the day.
The score put the No. 16 Seminoles ahead of No. 1 Clemson 7–0 on the road.
Cook told SI’s Pete Thamel and Thayer Evans this week that he thought was the best running back in the country.
Quarterback Sean Maguire is starting for FSU, replacing Everett Golson, who missed last week’s win over Syracuse with a concussion.
On the following drive, Cook passed 100 yards on the day with this 36-yard rush. It marks his fifth 100-yard game this season, and the 10th time the sophomore has completed the feat in his career.
